This Is How Civilization Dies

Often the most insane eats hail from sports stadiums (looking at you, chicken and waffle french fry stacks). And the story is no different with the "Chickle," an oddball creation coming out of Fresno, CA.

Thanks to the minor league baseball team The Fresno Grizzlies, we can now add pickle to the increasingly growing list of weird sandwich buns. Seriously, tomatoes and avocados are looking pretty normal now.

A nod to the Grizzlies' next opponent, the Nashville Sounds, the "chickle" is a pickle sliced lengthwise and then stuffed with Nashville-style hot chicken. While we still can't decide if we love or hate this idea, we're relieved to find out that the "sandwich" (if you even want to call it that) will only be available for two days, during the two-game series between the baseball teams, Sports Illustrated first reported.

Don't get me wrong. I like a nice pickle.
But this is too much.

The fools! It would be MUCH better with corned beef.

NO NO NO...the meat isn't the problem. It's the pickle, woman. The pickle is once again the problem. It's meant to be eaten as it is. A room temperature brined vegetable. Damn people. We are TRYING to build a civilization here.

You're too much of a hardliner, Cal. Learn to be more flexible!

For as long as you have known me have I ever shown flexibility on any subject??

Plus the Chicken is Green. When have you seen a green chicken??? When the chicken is green you don't eat it. Right? So pick something else that would be associated with a pickle. What animal in nature is really hung and is a carnivore??
