    Well.. in a burger at McD's for example.. I just leave them be, and don't really take much notice of them.. Soo I guess yeah they are ok, but wouldn't go out of my way to by some! (..or even use them in anyway as an ingredient etc..)

    Soo err yeah I eat them, they're easily bearable but not the most appetising.

    As an Americain do I even want to know what they are?

    EDIT: figured it out, they're know as pickles on the North Americain continent

    Nothing wrong with a good gherkin!

    Hook'em up to a power source and you've even got yourself a lightbulb!

    I love gherkins, or wallies as they should be known. Especially with a salt beef sandwich. I actually think that they are the only edible thing in a mcdonalds.
    Not around too often!

    I love the gherkin lamp thing! I thought that gherkin slicer dude's comment was hilarious. I though planespotters were sad but gherkinspotters are even bigger losers XD
