Elsie's, a restaurant in Haddon Township, New Jersey is giving a whole new meaning to the term "extra pickles."


They serve their sandwiches on giant hollowed-out pickles, made with their own special recipe.

The result is the highest pickle-to-sandwich ratio possible.




Co-owner Katherine Cohen told thrillist:

"We are a sandwich shop but, in lieu of bread, we use our Elsie's signature pickle."
"We have a family pickle recipe that we resurrected and we started making sandwiches on our signature pickles and people lost their minds so we just rolled with it."

If a giant pickle isn't your thing, Elsie's also offers pickle or cucumber roll-up versions of their specialty sandwiches. You can go even farther and customize your sandwich ingredients too.



Options include the standard meats, cheeses and condiments, along with special items like Sriracha or wasabi mayonnaise.

Twitter had mixed feelings about the idea of a pickle sandwich.

Some were totally there for it.




Others were much less excited by the idea.






Whatever your feelings on pickle sandwiches, there's no denying that Elsie's has definitely found their niche with this unique product.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
