I think Peter Piper actually picked a peck of regular peppers then pickled them at home. I’ve never seen a patch of pickled peppers, but I have seen people pickled picked peppers at home.

No matter how old you are, no matter who you vote for, no matter where you’re from, all Americans should be able to agree that “wiener” is a pretty hilarious word.
