And "import pickle" objectifies pickles. It's deplorable how few
gherkins become programmers, and I think it's because of these
immature jokes about pickles that have become entrenched in the Python
community. These folk are on the very point of becoming programmers
when they read an extremely obscure reference in one program's module
collection and, as a result, choose a career elsewhere (in the case of
pickles, there's always a job at McDonalds).
