Pickle Pops – Maybe I should try some after all

Okay, I like pickles.  I would go so far as to say I *love* pickles.  But nonetheless, they seem disgusting to me in frozen form and I’m not sure how I feel about them being in kids lunches.  Call me old fashioned, but why not just give them a regular old pickle?  But I definitely think getting away from the name “Pickle Sickle” was a good move.

That link was courtesy of InteractiveReader, and speaking of which, this quiz is courtesy of her boyfriend, whom I am currently blogstalking.  You know, to make sure he’s right for her and stuff.  It’s practically a duty.  I’m sure she would ask me to do it herself, but that would be impolite.

I am Rickets. Hear your bones go boing.
Which Horrible Affliction are you?
A Rum and Monkey disease.

I feel pretty good about Rickets.  It feels kind of old world and dignified, as diseases go.  Any disease with the tagline “Hear your bones go boing” can’t really be all that bad.  Plus, since it is almost wiped out in the 1st world, it sort of has a nostalgia factor.

Today marks the first day that anybody pulled over to tell us how adorable Evie is.  We were walking back from the garden and they just stopped their car in the street to tell us.  So perhaps I am not just being a proud pappa in thinking she is indeed adorable!

  1. God i hope not. After hearing about the wonderful non medical benefits for people with cystic fibrosis, cancer, MS and diabetes, it would be a shame if they gave us rickets. But God has a sense of humor and if there are side effects, then at least the name is a catchy one. Kidding aside, the pickle pops are just a fun way for kids to eat their vegetables (even though cucumbers are fruits like tomatoes are fruits).


  2. LOL, I apologize sir, for the unfortunate title of my post! Obviously the Pickle Pops and the Rickets were two unrelated things, but I can see how from a marketing perspective the title “Do Pickle Pops give you Rickets?” might be a little upsetting to you!

    I certainly never in a million years expected someone from the company to see this entry. You seem to have a good sense of humor, nonetheless, I will change the title post-haste to avoid putting the thought into anyone’s head!


  3. Erith, no not at all. I found the title funny and commend you on your sense of humor and got a laugh out of it. I was just having fun with it. Feel free to change it back if you would like. I have google alerts set up for any site with the words “pickle” and “pop” in it and your came up yesterday.

    Stay young and keep up the good work. The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.


  4. I am rabies. Is that a good thing?

    “Transmitted by rabid animals, you’re most commonly found infecting creatures such as raccoons, skunks, bats and foxes. But don’t worry, you affect humans too, causing either paralysis or hyperactivity in your advanced stages, and ultimately death.

    Your most famous symptom is hypersalviation – that delightful foaming at the mouth that we have come to know and indeed love. However, you can also cause hallucination; think of the fun you could have at parties!”
