Not a huge melon fan (ahem), but that sounds pretty damned awesome.

Man, I love the concessions at the donkey shows, too.

Sounds like a trailer park version of an Arnie Palmer. Ah, mix me up a glass of white trash Arnie Palmer!

A halved pickled egg is one of my favorites. Sometimes with a squirt of sriracha, but plain most of the time. I haven't had any on hand in quite some time, I should do something about that.

This next one isn't one of my favorites, but I have a friend who loves it. Before I even go into it, yes, it sounds terrible and makes no sense on paper, but somehow it actually manages to taste good. I've heard it called a glop sandwich. It's peanut butter, mayonnaise, and pickle slices on bread. The first time I tried it, my friend wrapped up the ingredients in a tortilla, and while I was pretty reluctant to try it at first, I was really caught off guard by how good it was. Since then, there have been a few times where I've made the sandwich version, and as long as you use good pickles and don't put on too much mayo, it's pretty good.

Skip the mayo altogether.

Dill pickle is my favorite peanut-butter-&-_________ sandwich.
