Design Classics: Pickle Fork

Even a object as simple as a pickle fork can benefit from innovative thinking and design. I first discovered this wonder while going through a box of family heirlooms . I love this thing. Dig deep into the pickle jar ( I use mine for olives) and spear your favorite. Once over your target, gently squeeze the release mechanism and the pickle effortlessly slides off the tines. The motion is similar to that for using a hypodermic needle, a bit like a plunger. How many times have you struggled to shake loose that pesky pickle only to be embarassed when it falls to the floor? The entertainment factor alone is worth the price.
