“Giant cannibals were soaking me in vinegar when I shouted, ‘Pickle someone your own size!‘“

The word “pickle” doesn’t mean “pick,” but there’s a pun:

“Giant cannibals began to soak me in vinegar, I thought ‘enough is enough.’ ‘Why don’t you pickle someone your own size?’ I shouted at them.”

The joke was posted on Twitter on August 24, 2013.
