Gherkin (French cornichon) is a young cucumber (Cucumis sativus), picked when 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) in length and pickled in jars or cans with vinegar (often flavoured with herbs, particularly dill; hence, ‘dill pickle’) or brine.

The term can also be used to refer to the West Indian Burr Gherkin (Cucumis anguria), a related plant species, originally West African, that was introduced to the West Indies, probably by the Portuguese. This ‘true’ or Burr Gherkin or badunga cannot interbreed with the ‘true’ cucumber (Cucumis sativus), which is the condiment vegetable now generally known as the gherkin or dill pickle. The West Indian Burr Gherkin is edible and may be pickled but must be picked when no longer than 1.5 inches (4 cm) long, since it becomes bitter and spiny if allowed to grow larger.

And still nobody's even chuckled at my slightly existential joke of trying to be off topic in a thread about everything by leaving a post with nothing in it.

Don't playa hate, you know you love the wit.

JEW INTRODUCES PLAGUE OF RODENTS ON UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC.

How fucking easy is it to make up a healdine that creates friction.. yet..

the glis glis, a 7 inch rodent inhabiting, uninvited, many many homes in the home counties, was originally introduced by Nathaniel Rothschild who bred them and freed them into the woods in the town of Tring in hertfordshire, today the area is infested. he freed// about a dozen. Nathaniel founded his own museum, still open, which he originally started in a small shed as a child. He was also famed throughout the area for riding thru the town in a carriage, drawn by Zebra.

sadly i lived there for about 10, but escaped by tunneling at night and carrying the earth out inthe turnups of my trousers. We made it on the second attempt by tunneling under the A41, past the Rose and Crown and up into the park, coming out near Nell Gwyn's monument. Still on the run, never going back. Yuk :)

Weird, Honest Tom, you lived (or at least, went to school) in Aylesbury too, didn't you? Your dentist in Tring may very well have been my Dad...

Pinky the Pig spoke yesterday of the heartbreak he felt on learning that his musical partner of over forty years had died after a long battle with swine flu.

Pinky and Perky dominated the media in the 1960s with their helium-voiced cover versions of hit records and were thought at the time to be a porcine answer to the Beatles. Perky the Pig was born in Czechoslovakia in 1938 and emigrated to Britain with his younger brother Pinky after the war. Both spoke no English but a knack for jokey speeded-up versions of popular songs soon endeared them to a massive following and gave them a series of number one hits. "Perky was one of the old school," said Pinky, his piping falsetto trembling with emotion. "We shall not see his like again." Perky leaves a sow and three strings of sausages.

Most diseases sound like new cars.
E.g. The all new Siphilis 2000 (sic). For a really infectious drive.
Soriasis - or maybe Xema - The drive that gets under you skin.
Cystitis – Become inflamed!

I put (sic) once. I thought any committees wanting to workshop any change in spelling would apply that same pedantic verve to common sense. You shall be receiving my bill in due course.

How does your daftness compare with that of a brush. A brush is the unit of daftness, in the same way as Wales is the unit of area (eg "the forest fire razed an area twice the size of Wales" etc)
