"the peanut butter and pickle sandwich is one of those unlikely pairings that shouldnâ€™t work, but does. Thatâ€™s how Iâ€™ve always felt, anyway. Iâ€™ve been happily eating these distinctive little sandwiches for years. The vinegary snap of chilled pickle cuts, like a dash of irony, against the stoic unctuousness of peanut butter. The sandwich is a thrifty and unacknowledged American classic." http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/24/d...peanut-butter-and-pickles.html?pagewanted=all i tried one (toasted the bread) and i liked it, but i have no idea wtf this means..."stoic unctuousness of peanut butter"
