Remember Lodi’s dancing pickle featured on Wordless Wednesday on February 26, 2008?
A couple of weeks ago, this blurb appeared in the Lodi News-Sentinel’s Cop Log:
A pickle — the dancing human kind who works for Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop — was blocking traffic. An officer arrived and advised the pickle.
On Tuesday evening, as part of his regular feature, “Small Town News,” David Letterman read that entry on “The Late Show.” I was sitting here at my computer and, when I heard Letterman say “Lodi,” caught him read it and comment to Paul Schaffer, “You know, that probably happens more than we think. Cops advise pickles all the time.”
It was almost as exciting as the night the Lodi Grape Festival was featured on the Daily Show because the managers banned silly string along the annual parade’s route. The rationale? It interfered with and posed a danger to the Shriners who participated each year. A few years later, they discontinued the parade altogether.
That’s the latest from Livable, Lovable Lodi . . .
