The Popular Pickle



There is so much to love about this video, from the whimsical music which makes it seem as if the cucumbers are just going on holiday, instead of being wrenched from their happy fields and families, then sliced and seasoned for consumption by monstrous hairless apes, to the very phrase "pickle packer." The one omission, understandable in light of 1950s' reticence, is no mention of the cucumber as sex toy.

When a pickle packer packs a pickle...

This dredged up memories of Mom doing this at home. She used to pack a mean Bread-N-Butter pickle. I couldn't get enough of them.

Old brain cells kick in a day late....

Punch line:

Chorus: "Johnny cut a whopper!"
Johnny: "And Teacher ate the stopper!"

And all this greatness BC.
