Pickle Phobia



Just when you thought we'd struck the bottom of the barrel in teary-eyed talk-show moments, Maury Povich proudly breaks through the bottom of the barrel. Specifically, the pickle barrel.

Thank heavens that Maury Povich is there to get to the bottom of the most meaningful and controversial points of American society. Were it not for this program about pickle phobias, the terrorists would have won.

I like how he knows she's terrified, and sends his minions after her with platefuls of Vlasics all the same. What a fucking sadist.

I guess he is married to Connie Chung. Not that surprising, I suppose.

It reminds me of the joke, ahem ...

There was a man who had worked his whole life in a pickle factory. One day he came home and told his wife that he had been fired from his job. She began to scream and yell, "You have given them twenty years of devoted service. Why did they fire you?"

"For twenty years I've wanted to stick my pecker in the pickle slicer," he explained, "and today I finally did it!"

The wife ran over and pulled his pants down to see what damage had been done. "You look okay," she said with a sigh of relief. "So what happened to the pickle slicer?"

"Well," he said with hesitation, "they fired her, too."

Thank you, please tip you waitress and remeber the 7:30 show is different from the 9:30 show

(Sorry for the previous post; was on my roommate's computer.)

Okay, not that I'm saying anything new here, but: what the hell is wrong with Maury Povitch? Sure, it sounds silly to have a "pickle phobia", but he sees how freaked out he gets and then he brings out a plate full of pickles? What, would he bring a crate of spiders out to an arachnophobe? "Really, who's afraid of spiders? Suck it up, girl!" Guy needs to get a good slap.
