Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!
This amuses me on multiple levels. First - and maybe I live a sheltered life - who knew they sold individually wrapped pickles, let alone 'portly' ones?

Van Holten. It sounds German. But I see Big Papa but read 'Big Papi'. It's the international pickle.

I do love very crispy/crunchy garlicky dill pickles. I never buy them though. I only get them at the nice jewish delis when we go there to eat. Or went there to eat.

Denton was always grossed out that Corky & Lenny's had pickles sitting in a bowl on every table. I'd consume most of the bowl before our order was taken, let alone before they actually delivered the food.

Yes, I had no idea who was at our table before we sat down. And yes, I had no idea how long said pickles had been out either. That never really bothered me. Obviously. He'd never touch them. Ever.

That all being said, C&L was shut down a few years back for a few weeks after some ecoli spread to a bunch of customers. While I don't really feel too scared about that - truth be told, I've never been back.

But as I type this, the image on the wrapper reminded me of someone and I just figgered out who: Kevin, from SpongeBob.

Am I wrong?

I love it when you call me "Big Papa".
