    "the peanut butter and pickle sandwich is one of those unlikely pairings that shouldn’t work, but does.

    That’s how I’ve always felt, anyway. I’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."

    i tried one (toasted the bread) and i liked it, but i have no idea wtf this means..."stoic unctuousness of peanut butter" :jj:

    i googled it and was more confused. "smooth and creamy" or "hypocritical."



    they both apply to peanut butter.


    and pickles are "ironic."
