    Oh my gosh, those are the best ever. The Fish Market around here sells them as a side item and I have been known to walk into the restaurant merely to get the fried pickles. That's one of those Southern things where you take an item of food and say, "This item is loaded with sodium, fat, and cholesterol and has no redeeming nutritional value whatsoever. It couldn't possibly be any more unhealthy than it already is... but hey, wait! Wait just a minute!!"

    Smith's Olde Bar here in Atlanta (a great bar completely aside from its menu) also has good fried pickles.

    The Penguin in Charlotte has fried pickles, among many other fried delicacies. It also has one of the most amazing jukeboxes in the world. California needs Bojangles.

    Admitting the problem is often the first step to recovery...

    plain, fried, fostered, chocolate covered (frozen), puddinged,daquiried,peanut buttered,honeyed,sandwiched,mixed with other fruits (saladed?),liquered,cerealed,oatmealed,juiced(with oranges and/or pineapples). Did I miss any other banana preparations? (pureed in baby food would not be a favorite, however).

    Dehydrated/Dried. Yumm bananas.
    Smoking the peels does not count.

    That's not real (AFAIK). I did not make it up, I was just anticipating someone would suggest or mention that possibility.

    So does Alabama and what's up with that?? I mean, how can Alabama/Georgia/Mississippi not be the perfect market for Bojangles?

    because we keep them soooo busy here in NC that they don't have the time or capacity (or chickens) to expand into other markets

(There's a 4' wall between the gophers & my dogs, so I'm not endangering my canines). Although I did research gophers, thinking that if they didn't bite, or have rabies or fleas or other diseases, I would just let the dogs over the wall to have a little fun and kill the suckers. ...not to be, possible havoc on the dogs.
    Maybe you should get a really mean dog and let it do the dirty work! We used to have a problem with voles, but the cats have risen to the occasion magnificently.

    I hate brazen pest critters like that. We have suburban deer that like to come around at nights and eat my impatiens and sweet potato vine... I mean, no shame at all. They'll cross the road, meander past cars, gaze curiously at barking dogs, graze unhurriedly on my garden like it's a freakin' Golden Corral. I hate those varmints!!

    Hey, I'd totally do the expanding for them! My husband and I have joked (at least, he thinks I'm joking) about opening up a franchise in Birmingham. I would be so proud if my legacy was spreading the greasy joy of Bojangles all across the South!

    Oh, you have no idea how I would love to eat these deer! Unfortunately, we live in a neighborhood and I would feel terrible if I accidentally shot someone in my bloodlust.

    If I ruled the world . . .

    I honestly believe it would be a better place. I think I could be a benevolent dictator for about 10 years before the absolute power corrupted me so I'd write some bylaws ahead of time that would kick me out after 10 years.

    I'd like to turn it all over to another intelligent, benevolent dictator. Anybody around here want to go next?

    I would prefer to be a member of a small, ruling elite cadre, so perhaps a junta to take power after your benevolent dictatorship? Maybe dkbaseball, throaty, indoor66, shammrog, billybreen and myself. Earljam could be court jester.

    But BostonDevil, if you need an executive officer, I'd be happy to train at your side.

    Thread Question

    I know this is an odd question, and I hope it makes sense.

    Does anyone know what the most # of views a thread has gotten before receiving its first reply is?
