What in the name of all that is GOOD and PURE and EDIBLE is this?!?

a thing in my jar of pickles

This would be a disturbing thing to find in a jar of pickles you just brought home from the store. It’s a TERRIFYING thing to find as you are attempting to fish the very last pickle out of the jar. I’m almost certain it’s a chunk of root or something.

Only…whenever I look more closely at it, it appears to be bilaterally symmetrical, with a defined head and thorax. It’s got way too many legs for a terrestrial beastie, but they cluster into what could conceivably be considered six leg clumps and some extra antenna and mouth parts. Like a regular, albeit very large, bug that exploded in a hot vinegar and dill solution.

No, I’m not fishing it out.

I’m not.

I don’t want to know. I don’t care if it is science. I ATE THOSE PICKLES.
