Nothing to do this weekend?

Go to Pickle Fest! There's the pickle juice drinking contest! The pickle toss! Music from not just one or two, but many different groups! Prizes, prizes, prizes! And LOTS and LOTS of food! With extra pickles!!!

God Is My Codependent, who runs the Ten-Foot Poll, lives nearby and can surely put you up for the night.

And, here--enjoy this picture of a pickle dressed like a pirate. Why? Because.

I love pickles, but I don't know that I would hold a festival for them. Cheetos maybe, but pickles?

Could you pass a Cheetos vs Cheez Doodles taste test?

Jim Donahue said...

If you asked which I prefered, I'd say Cheetos. But if you gave me a blind taste test, I doubt I'd could tell either apart from a store brand.

Remember those analogy questions from SAT tests? Try this one:

"Cheese" is to "Cheez" as "food" is to ______________.

"Fud" with an umlaut over the u.

I love a good cure.

I'd take a blind taste test. I can always tell my Cheetos from any imitators.

Why is the pickle wearing a pirate hat?

Sit down, trinamick, I have something important to tell you.

It may upset your belief system, but you're going to have to deal with it:

Cheetos are the imitators. Cheez Doodles are the originals.

I hope you have a strong suport system that can help you pick up the pieces. (Especially the pieces that roll under the couch. They get pretty gross after a couple of years.)

Sorry to be the one to do this, but in the long run it's for your own good.
