Miss Pickle of 2014

Here is a new post that joins two previous ones: my post with the video about the PICKLE INDUSTRY, and Alex's post about MISS KANGAROO.

It appears that at least since 1964, the union known as the Pickle Packers International has been choosing a woman to be "Miss Pickle."

The first foto below comes from THE DAILY EGYPTIAN for October 30, 1964. The second foto comes from the BUFFALO COURIER-EXPRESS for June 24, 1967, while the article comes from the TUSCALOOSA NEWS for May 7, 1967.

Finally, we come to Miss Pickle of 2014, who seems more like a cartoon company mascot than a beauty-queen.

The 'Miss' in 2014 seems to have been pickled a bit longer than usual. No?

My MIL was a pickle inspector back in her younger days, weeding out the "crooks" and "nubs."

In that first photo it appears she is not lighting his pipe but shoving a pickle into his face.

My mother made a bread-and-butter pickle to die for. I still have a few jars but am running out. Unfortunately I think that she took the recipe to the grave with her and I can't find it in her recipe collections. I will have to have some ceremony with the passing of the last jar.

Pickles are for pu**y woosies.
