This Is Why Your Sandwich Is Served with a Pickle

If you’re like this guy, you’re not complaining that a delicious dill pickle comes automatically with your deli sandwich.

If you’re like other people, you slide it quickly off your plate and lament all of the places where the vinegar-y juice touched the rest of your food.

No matter how you feel about pickles, you probably don’t know why, exactly, they’ve found their way onto deli plates everywhere – but you’re about to find out.

Pickles themselves have be around (and adored by many) since as far back as 2400 B.C.E. They gained popularity in the States after the first Jewish immigrants found their way to New York from eastern Europe, and as those immigrants opened delis, they offered the pickle as a palate cleanser.

The acidity of the pickle is meant to let you experience the sharp contrast in meat flavors more fully.

As more and more Jewish delis adopted the practice, the pickle’s popularity soared in New York City. By the 1930s, pickle vendors were popping up all over the Lower East Side, inciting “Pickle Wars” among competing vendors.

Once it had taken NYC by storm, the pickle made its way across the States, until now, it’s more common to see a pickle on you deli plate than not. Most delis don’t even list it as a side; people just assume it will be included.

And if it’s not there?

Well, I guess some people will be upset, and others will breathe a sigh of relief. To each his own.

This is still America, after all.

Meet the Guy Who Made the First-Ever Pair of Edible Underwear

You may be wondering: how the heck did edible underwear become a thing? Luckily for you, we’ve got a history lesson on the topic.

It all started with the phrase, “Eat my shorts.”

Edible underwear was invented in the early 1970s by a man named David Sanderson. He was smoking marijuana and drinking wine when he randomly remembered that his older brother used to tell him to “Eat my shorts” when he was being annoying.

David had a lightbulb moment. What if there were shorts that you could actually eat? His partner, Lee Brady, thought it was a great idea, and the rest was history. Candypants, as they called it, was born.

Unlike many other drunk ideas that seem “brilliant” at the time, Candypants was a smashing success. People bought them in droves, and the media buzzed about the risque new item.

This original edible underwear was constructed from a sheet of edible candy, made from sugar, food starch, glycerin and other ingredients. One pair retailed for $4.95.

At this time, they were considered a novelty gift item — not an adult sex toy item, as they are today. Even nunneries and nursing homes ordered Candypants from David and Lee’s new factory!

As business grew, they eventually filled $150,000 of orders every month. They became so wealthy that they bought a mansion and installed a disco.

But people at adult sex stores wanted a piece of that pie, too. Knockoff versions of Candypants became common, and now you can find all manner of edible undergarments at sex stores.

Meanwhile, you can still buy the original version of Candypants on Amazon.

In case you were curious, they reportedly don’t taste very good.

The First-Ever Customer at Disneyland Has Gone Back Every Year Since It Opened in 1955

Going to Disneyland is a feat that requires months of pre-planning and budgeting. But one man gets to go every single year for free, and he has been since 1955.

Dave MacPherson has a lifetime pass to Disneyland for a very special reason: he was the park’s first-ever customer.

On July 17, 1955, Dave was a 22-year-old college student in Long Beach, California. He was at home watching Disneyland’s opening festivities on television when he got the idea to be the first person to enter the park on opening day. He switched off the T.V. and traveled 10 miles by motorbike to get to the park. He arrived at 2 a.m., and sure enough, he was first in line. Over the course of the night, 6000 other people joined the line behind him.

After Disney’s family members and celebrities entered, Dave became the first actual customer to buy a ticket and set foot inside the park.

Dave doesn’t know what happened to his historic admission ticket. He did, however, keep a copy of the complimentary card that came with it. The complimentary card allowed Dave to enter the park for free on July 18, 1955. He didn’t get to use that card because he had to ride his motorbike back home to Long Beach.

But thankfully, he was also awarded with a lifetime pass to the legendary amusement park, which he has taken advantage of every single year since—and Dave’s still going strong!

MacPherson says about his luck, “”You might say that 1955 was a very good year for a youthful Scotsman!”

The Queen Shut down Her Staff’s Private Bar Because They Were Getting Too Drunk All the Time

Buckingham Palace seems like the epitome of class and high society. The property’s staff enjoys its own swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, choir and more. One thing that they don’t have, though, is a private bar — at least not anymore.

The staff of Buckingham Palace apparently enjoyed their private bar a little too much. The Queen’s former press secretary, Dickie Arbiter, revealed that the Queen had to shut the private bar down because people were getting too drunk.

Dickie said the staff ended up “too worse for wear” and “they had to get rid,” Insider reports. He revealed the juicy info in a new documentary, Secrets of the Royal Palaces, which premiered on the UK’s Channel 5.

It’s not clear when, exactly, the bar was removed, nor whether there were any specific incidents that led to its shutdown. Dickie kept his comments rather vague and concise, which is understandable. You don’t get to be the Queen’s press secretary by having loose lips!

Did the Queen ever stop in for a drink and see the debauchery for herself? It’s not completely out of the question. Some reports claimed that the Queen enjoys four cocktails daily, but those turned out to be just hearsay. She does, however, enjoy a cocktail before dinner (a gin and Dubonett, thank you very much), along with the occasional glass of sweet wine or champagne.
