Dr. Mason was once the pride of the Peoria state fair as a Pickling proficienato. But like so many dreamers of the preserving arts, his passion for pickling got the best of him. There was the unfortunate pickling of his Wife and pet fish, Cucumber, before anyone got wise. By then Dr.Mason had already attempted to pickle himself. Short on brine he was forced to settle for saving his head. Sadly nothing keeps forever but as you can see Dr.Mason is still with us in spirit.
