"We knew the time had come to create something wondrous with pickles," Sam Bompas, one half of gin-cloud generating, wedding cake-exploding culinary masters Bompas & Parr, tells Wired.co.uk. The pickle has been overlooked for too long.

Probably had too much to dream last night to come up with that idea.

I love deep fried pickles.  I wonder what these taste like after being used as a light?
