4. Scarf vanish and appears in pickle

6. Hollow out as use as T.T.
7. I've never seen a pickle as pretty as a tree....(with apologies to O.Nash??)

Say you hate pickles and they keep appearing througout your show....
I personally think pickled eggs are funnier....and more disgusting...who actually eats those things? Are they...ummm...good?

I EAT THOSE THINGS! Every time I finish a jar of dill pickles, I boil some eggs and throw them in the jar with the juice and let them sit for about 3-4 weeks. Mmmmm, good.

Oh, excuse me, I thought I was blogging on the Marth Stewart website. Sorry!

Here's a routine on the "card in pickle"....a VERY funny routine with great patter that uses the letter "p" over and over.

But if you take cranberries and boil them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does.

Buy one of those dill pickles that's packaged separately. Offer each helper a choice between a delicious garlic dill pickle and a balloon animal or whatever you use for helper giveaways.

Keep trying to make each helper choose the pickle, which they never will. "you'd rather have a pickle than a (whatever) wouldn't you?" Look disappointed each time because you can't get rid of the pickle.

Pickles, like bananas, are inherently funny!

Ah, the ole' Pickle In A Pouch gambit... I'm actually working on a pickle illusion. I've gotten more mileage with the preschoolers out of sponge bananas & pickles than most of my other tricks put together. Those and the Wonder Mouse. And since I'm going to be in the Lower East Side tomorrow, I'm going to get my two quarts of half-sours because, well, isn't that what New York City is all about? None of those cukes doused in vinegar, gimmee the REAL pickles! Brine all the way!

Pickle instead of a thimble with my nearly normal wash board...

Aren't they neat

With apologies to ________
(no prize to first who identifies the author who inspired the above...
nearly normal hint...Garlic Pickles give me "Classical Gas"

Pickles are just funny. Even the word "pickles" is funny. Bananas are also funny particularly if you elongate the word like the brilliant comedian Eddie Izzard does in his show when talking about teaching chimps to speak using sign language.

Pickles are funny because they are green (a very funny color), bumpy (bumps are always funny!), and the work "pickles" has that lovely "pee" sound followed by the hard k sound. Oh, the georgeous and comedic pickle. The only thing funnier than a pickle would be a giant pickle.

Think of a giant paper mache pickle used in a zombie routine. Oh the hi-jinks that would ensue! Smile

One of my favorite gags that I have ever seen is the electrocuted glowing pickle that I saw Penn and Teller perform. There is nothing like a glow in the dark pickle, unless of course it was a GIANT glow in the dark pickle! Smile

Now if you could just get a monkey in a fez to eat a glow in the dark, giant pickle, the world my friends would be your oyster! Smile

Best,

Dan-

The "P" routine reminds me of a routine by Johnny Carson and Jack Web.

Seems like they used "C"???

This thread is a gold mine for me, since my clown names is...PICKLES. I perform "Peanut Butter & Pickles" instead of "Peanut Butter & Jelly." I'm still trying to figure out some way to incorporate my yodeling pickle into my show.

I just want to ride on my Motor-"Sickle". A.G.

Glad to see this thread activated.

I think Pickles was the name of Buddies girlfriend. (on the Dick Van Dyke show)

Pickles and Peanut butter is funny.

Giving birth to new ideas is fun.

Is the yodeling pickle a puppet, or one of those sound activated things like the singing fish?

I thought of learning yodeling for a vent routine, but haven't put much time into it.

The yodeling pickle is just a little plastic ones. He's funny but too small to use on a stage. Maybe I could incorporate it into a birthday party routine. Hmmm. Right now he is not yodeling -- just stuttering. I think he needs new batteries.

That reminds me of the bar scene in the movie "The Ladies Man". That was some great gross-out comedy!
