NEW YORK CITY - Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is reportedly upset at a recent story he read in a supermarket tabloid.
Limbaugh stated that as he was standing in the checkout line at a local grocery store he happened to notice the latest edition of the publication Just Saying.
And in big red bold letters just above a photo of him it read, Rush "Tubby" Limbaugh's weight gain is due to his addiction to pickles.
Limbaugh was furious. He later informed his listening audience that he may eat four or five big pickles a day, but that hardly qualifies as being an addiction.
He noted that he mostly just sucks on the pickles in much the same manner he sucks on his 12-inch cigars.
Limbaugh was recently asked by Jefferson Sierra with National Focus Magazine if he didn't think that a grown man sucking on 12-inch cigars all day long may have some kind of keep rooted meaning.
Limbaugh joked that he has been doing it for many years and not once has he ever thought of his 12-inch cigar as nothing more than a 12-inch cigar.
SIDENOTE: Jefferson Sierra noted that Rush Limbaugh can say what he wants but Dr. Phil would most certainly have lots of questions about Limbaugh deriving so much pleasure from eating pickles and sucking on 12-inch cigars.
