Posted:NYC, I had the same thought about picking pickled peppers a long time ago back in school, and came up with the follwoing possible explanations.*** Pick: to pull from your nostril, usually with the pointing finger of the left hand shaped into a gentle hook.Therefore he could have been picking pickled peppers out of a cavernous and perhaps shelf-riddled nasal proejction, rather than off a tree...*** Pick: To choose from a selection.He could also have been choosing pickled peppers from a grocery or supermarket shelf, which radically alters the numbers involved, depending on supply, demand and actual numbers of displayed products. Also a factor may be the size of his shopping cart and the availability of cash to purchase said pickles...***Pick: to open a lock without using the approprite key.A little harder to visualise, there may well have been a lock or safe made out of pickled peppers, and while the hero of the rhyme is not defiend as a theif he may have been attempting to steal many different items from many different pickled, pepper locked safes...*** Pick: to pluck or twang an instrument to produce a sharp rpecise note, most frequently used with string instruments.The hero have merely being playing a strange serenade for the love of his life, with the local instrument of the region, peppered pickles...***Pick: To criticise sharply as in "he was picked to pieces by the critics, although several younf women threw their underwear during the curtaincall".He may have been complaining about the state of the pickles, rather than any physical manipulation, certainly, there were many types of pickling avaiable during the period this rhyme was created, some of which were much lower in quality and effect than ohers...And the list goes on but I better stop, coz I've got work to do...------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz

Posted:Ahhhh, yes Charles... So if Peter Piper was in a grocery store and thinking "Gee, should I bring home a pint or pickled peppers, no I need more... How about a bushel of pickled peppers... no, too much. I'll just get a peck." Then Peter Piper would have been able to pick a peck of pickled peppers.That seems reasonable. I feel much better. But wait, was it a British grocery store, or one in the US. Because as we know, the pecks are different sizes. Also, since it's a measurement of VOLUME we really need to know the SIZE of peppers to find out how many peppers are in each peck. If he had selected one, single, very large 8.8 liter pepper then the answer would be "one" if he was in the US but less than one in the UK.It's all sparkely poi to me...

Posted:once I made a skyscraper out of cupcakes. The frosting made really good mortar but soon enough it rained and the dogs ate all the batter. I had a frog but the cat ate it. I had a brother but the cat ate it too. I thought goats eat everything but I gues that job has now ben deligated to the cat. now I just think goats make bridges but they dont make very good skyscrapers.

Last Saturday I spun fire for a project my wife is working on. it a place called columcille. As a 'barter' with the owner, I had to stay after and spin for a cerimony he was having on the ground. It was very interesting. A tribute to St Culumbu or something like that. In front of 300 people, I managed to tangle my flaming poi behind my back. I got them untagled, let out a "WOOHOO!!" and jumped into the same move again
