Obviously, this is not the first time penis and peanuts have been confused.

I recall one very specific example. When I was a very young boy in Rochester, NY, the main baseball rivals of our hometown Red Wings were the nearby Buffalo Bisons, who fielded a banjo-hitting outfielder named “Peanuts” Lowrey. He had been in pro ball since the 1930s, was a major league starter for many years, and was still coaching in the National League in the 1980s, but when I knew of ol’ Peanuts, he was nearly 40, hanging on in the minors, as many former big leaguers did in those days. I never got out to the ballpark when I was that age, so everything I knew about baseball came from the radio, and for years, I continued to believe that our radio announcer had been calling him “Penis” Lowrey. When I finally saw his 1954 card, I was bewildered by his having signed it “P-Nuts,” which may or may not have been some slightly off-color joke that I did not understand, and probably never will.

If you live in the UK or watch the BBC, you probably know who she is. If you’re outside that circle, here’s Wikipedia‘s quick summary:

“Humble is an English television presenter and narrator, mainly working for the BBC, specialising in wildlife and science programmes. Humble served as President of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.”

Anyway … she’s been naked on camera twice, 27 years apart.

When she was an aspiring actress at age 21, she had a part in Spymaker, a biopic about Ian Fleming.

And as a distinguished presenter and the Royal and Ancient Bird Lady, she went skinny-dipping at age 48 on the premiere episode of one of her reality shows, Kate Humble: Off the Beaten Track.

She also did a nude scene in episode one of the new series.

Regarding her unusual name: it’s Japanese. Her four grandparents include two from Japan, one from the UK, one from Argentina. You are all familiar with the Mizuno name from shoes and sporting goods. According to one site “Sonoya” has meaning in Japanese, but is not a common name.

You remember her most fondly from Blame it on Rio (1984).

She next did a very brief topless scene in Genuine Risk (1990).

Her episode of Tales From the Crypt (s3e11) aired seven years after Rio and she had changed quite a bit.

She would do one more nude scene after that, but exposing only her booty, in a film called Body Shot (1994).

According to Mr. Skin, she was also topless in an obscure 1987 effort called Beaks: The Movie. You can see from the image below that it is impossible to confirm that, and it has all the earmarks of a body-double scene, but Skin’s IDs are generally reliable.
