    Etymology: [F. pt. See Pasty.]


  1. Patty

    Patty is a character in the comic strip Peanuts, created by Charles M. Schulz. Her closest friend is Violet. The two appeared very early — Patty even appeared in the first strip, along with Charlie Brown and Shermy — but lacking the distinguishing characteristics of characters such as Lucy, Linus, or Sally, she became less prominent as years went by. As the only female character in the strip's very earliest days, Patty often acted as a sort of mother-hen, looking out for the younger characters; however, she also set the tone for the strong female characters in the Peanuts universe. In her second appearance, Patty is shown walking down the sidewalk reciting "Little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice." She then punches Charlie Brown in the face and, without missing a beat, continues, "That's what little girls are made of!" Patty's name was first mentioned on October 26, 1950, 24 days after her first appearance. She was apparently the oldest child in the strip, as she attended school when Charlie Brown did not. Eventually, she, along with Violet, became best known for their social snobbery and combined cruelty to Charlie Brown, although Violet was generally the more dominant of the two. Patty is also known for asking "Pig-Pen" why he is constantly so dirty.

    As we go into a lot of vegan and vegetarian products, like when they use that soy to make a meat patty and it's not just soybeans that are in there but it's also additional soy product to make it into a meat patty, then that's where I would say it's more processed.

  4. Tom Jennings:

    I believe [ the SLA ] saw themselves as kind of a modern-day Robin Hood organization where they are literally going to rob from the rich to give to the poor, their original demand was 70 dollars of groceries for every person on welfare in the state of California in 1974. And somebody ran the math and said, ‘ Well, that’s 400 million dollars. ’ Even for someone like Patty Hearst, that’s not an amount he could come up with. He came up with the first $ 2 million and they demanded more … This demand of food for the people, that’s when Patty started to turn in her tapes … It’s in my opinion they were trying to make a point … The point was you’re rich, many people are poor. They deserve to have a decent quality of life. And you’re the one who’s going to pay for that by giving them food.

  5. Tom Jennings:

    Patty Hearst was plucked out basically from a life of luxury … having been raised by the Patty Hearst family, to being tied up in a broom closet for days on end, being indoctrinated to this point of view that, everything having to do with how society was held together was wrong, who among us is to say how we would react under those kinds of circumstances ?
