Interestingly enough there was an insert in my packages from AHBS about the peanuts. Made from starch it says. Biodegradable. Stronger.

As the chief engineer, I'm required to make sure all facility systems are working in every location . . .and to throw a few handfuls of bio packing peanuts into the women's toilet to let them slowly slime themselves into a hideous goo with the accompanying screams of horror.
Just brew it...
