    It's a nut in a pea pod. And the nut is shaped like a pea.

    Last I checked my peas were small green and perfectly round, unlike the oblong pea-nutty intruders.

    Unless of course you compare them to say...black eyed peas that have a bit more of a oval shape to them.

    21, really! That's amazing, especially for a small dog.

    Regarding peanuts; they are legumes like some so-called peas are. Lentils are too. Don't we call them peas? I was going to say soy bean, but I guess the "bean" part disqualifies it.
