Here is a new post that joins two previous ones: my post with the video about the workings of a pickle factory, and Alex's post about "Miss Kangaroo."

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.
