June 09 - International Pickle Hurling Day

Mitch Taylor: "The weirdest thing just happened to me."
Chris Knight: "Was it one of those dreams where you see yourself standing in sort of Sun-God robes on a pyramid, with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you."
Mitch Taylor: "No..."
Chris Knight: "Why, am I the only one who has that dream?"

--Real Genius, 1985
Today is International Pickle Hurling Day! So run to your local grocer, nab a jar of your choice, and commence hurling!
Score points for creative shots. Increase your ranking in the pantheon of the world's great pickle hurlers by lobbing at odd angles and with multiple different pickle sizes. If an unsuspecting target happens to catch one in their mouth, bully for you!
And should you actually find yourself on a pyramid with a thousand naked women (or men, your choice) screaming and throwing little pickles at you... consider yourself a Pickle Hurling Sun-God.
Good luck and Godspeed, little pickler!

I will only throw pickles naked at Val Kilmer. Honestly, he deserves it for his fine depection of a physicist in that film.

That movie was awesome! It's a moral imperative to watch it! :)

So what happens if you have never seen it?

I can't even tell you how much I LOVED that movie. It's the only time I really liked Val in a movie.

Fitena and Lost Goddess, go, buy, watch, love, NOW.

As LJS said, it's a moral imperative.

Movies like that made the 80s bearable... might just go toss a pickle for the hell of it.
