A telemarketer for some outfit that calls me a lot at home while I’m at work just told me, “You’re harder to get to than the last pickle in a pickle jar.” And then tried to ask me for money. Possibly to buy a fork. Or maybe to pay for finger lengthening surgery.
I explained to her that if you pour out the pickle juice, you can turn the jar upside down, and the pickle will just fall into your hand.
Good deed for the day: done!
Disclaimer: Don’t pour pickle juice down the drain. It will combine with all the bacon grease down there and result in global warming.
Editor’s Note: When I searched online for a picture of a “pickle jar”, I got the image above. I believe it is a pickle urn, in case your pickle drowns in brine before you can get to it, and you want to keep its ashes on the mantle as a tribute.
