Can a pickle out run a posse made up of various foods that include a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a fat braided pretzel, raisins and even an ice cream cone with sprinkles? You bet when it’s a pickle determined not to be eaten! This is a hilarious story of the last pickle in the pickle jar. Mr. Adolph runs a deli and when his customer Mrs. Elmira Deeds walks in and requests the last pickle, things get a little strange.
The pickle doesn’t want to be eaten and so escapes to the horror of Mrs. Elmira Deeds who lets out an, “Eeek!”
The pickle runs out the door with Mr. Adolph in pursuit shouting, “Stop that pickle!” After a bit Mr. Adolph becomes pooped out and sits down on the curb.
Near by a peanut butter sandwich hears the commotion and decides to continue the chase shouting, “Stop that pickle!”
The pickle and the peanut butter sandwich pass a bake shop where a fat braided pretzel joins the chase and also shouts out, “Stop that pickle!”
The chase continues on with more and more food items joining in and each one shouting, “Stop that pickle!”
As the pickle rounds the corner of a building, however, the chase abruptly comes to an end when he runs smack into a boy and falls flat on the sidewalk.
The other foods that had been in pursuit cry out, “You’ve caught the pickle!”
To which the boy says, “What should I do with him?”
