Squickles Revisited

Think back to the old Sesame Street days and sing it with me, "One of these things is not like the other....."
In the middle of this lovely picture is a normal, regular pickle. Surrounding it are the mutant "squickles"! It's pollination gone wrong between crack smoking bees, squash and pickles! These things are taking over my garden! They grow to enormous sizes and seem to suck "energy" away from pickles growing on the same vines. They really don't taste bad, but they are full of seeds and just plain look funny! The kids won't eat them...I think they're scared!
Hmmm...maybe I'll pickle a bunch of squickle!
(It would sure be pretty in a jar!)
