(verb) to apportion costs or other resources by crudely spreading them across departments, individuals, or some other group, as in “We don’t need to figure out exactly who used the HR reps, just peanut butter their salaries across every department”; used in situations where obtaining greater precision would be burdensome or not yield any meaningful insight; a particularly esoteric usage may add the modifiers “chunky” or “creamy” to further specify the nature of this allocation: the former having some variation due to a customized formula, the latter being even, and both being used only for comic purposes
