– Today we eat some awful pickles – Let's talk about that

(alarm rings) (playful theme music) (fire blasts) Good Mythical Morning – As the best Mythical Beasts know, one of three pillars of Mythicality is curiosity And throughout our lives, curiosity has driven us to new and exciting and sometimes scary experiences, like eating ceviche in Denver – Oh, and today, we're gonna be tasting something equally risky, pickles that have been brined by the crew in mystery liquids And we were actually inspired to do this by today's sponsor, Skillshare

Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of creative and entrepreneurial classes that can help you find a new passion project, unlock career opportunities, and fuel life-long learning, including pickling – Oh – Yeah there's one class called brine time, pickle like a pro, and the Mythical crew has taken that course and will be taking to an extreme today – I was looking around and saw a couple of classes that appealed to me, like the marketing class, storytelling for leaders, how to craft stories that matter And one that caught my attention was wildlife photography, capturing portraits of your favorite animals

And my favorite animal is kinda wildlife, Barbara This is really gonna take our photo shoots to the next level – (chuckles) One that really interests me was learn how young guru engineers for Jay-Z, an introduction to audio recording So, since it's back-to-school season, Skillshare has a special offer for all Mythical Beasts that we're gonna share with you a little later – But right now let's taste some weird pickles

It's time for, will this pickle give us a tickle, or will this cuke make us puke? Sponsored by Skillshare Mythical chef Josh has pickled a bunch of cucumbers in various liquids We're gonna taste the pickle and we're gonna count to three, and we're gonna try to guess what was pickled – Mhm, get it right, get a point Whoever has the most points at the end, guess what? – What? – They win

– Hey! – The loser has to drink a glass of brine in Good Mythical More – I love brine! – Let's do it (funky music) Okay, first pickle, ooh, dark pickle – Brown – Like a dickle

It's what they call a, it's what they call a– (crew laughing) It's what they call a dark pickle – Oh, I think they call it a darkle – A darkle That's better – Get a little bit more of the word dark

– Okay – Dickle is something else – Okay! – We'll talk about it later – Well Oh

– Looks like a dickle – It stinks What is this? – Oh, wow That is musty This is round one? Where do we go from here? – It's bitter

It's nasty It's still very cucumbery and I hate cucumbers I only like it when it fully turns into a pickle But whatever we brined this in has kept it from doing something good I actually think I have an answer

– I have a guess – Okay Three, two, one – Chocolate – Liquid smoke? – Chocolate

– [Stevie] Okay you're both wrong and your hint is, it's a dickle No, I'm just kidding (Rhett laughs) These hints were written by Micah, so I'm just gonna say that – Oh nice to– – Dang – Separate yourself from this

– I'm with you, Micah – [Stevie] This pickle's cool beans – Oh beans, bean juice – No – Hold on

– Coffee – Yep, you got it – Oh, coffee! – Boom! Very bitter – (chuckles) Yeah, that wasn't even much of a hint – So here it is

– The hint is the answer, beans – You wanna know how to make a darkle? Trickle it in the– – Stick your darkle in, no, don't (Link spits) All right, next one (funky music) Okay, not quite as darkle – No this is– – It's basically just kinda pickly

Like if I saw that I'd be like, uh, maybe that pickle's been out a little long – There's a little brownness to it I mean you didn't pickle this in formaldehyde did you? That would kill us – [Josh] That's the guess, formaldehyde (Rhett chuckles) – Well I'm gonna guess without tasting it then

– Oh – Ugh – It's bad as well Golly, I'm afraid to bite this I'm gonna lick it

Lick your pickle Lickle – Very salty, man – Still tastes like a cucumber to me – I can't decide if this is, oh, I think I know it

I think this is something that you eat at a Chinese restaurant – [Stevie] You ready to guess? – I am – Sure – [Stevie] Three, two, one – Soy sauce? – Oyster sauce

– [Stevie] Okay, no – It does have an oysteriness– – [Stevie] You're kind of in the right family, but here's Micah's hint This pickle will take your broth away – Clam – Take your broth away? Chicken noodle pickle, chicken noodle soup pickle

– Beef broth – [Stevie] Here's another great one To guess this pickle, you'll have to use your noodle – Uh, ramen – Yep, got it

(Rhett laughs) – Ramen! I said chicken noodle – It did have an oystery sauceness to it Oh, is that it? Wow that's beautiful – We're tied up (funky music) This one looks just like the last one

– It has a residue Oh and you know what, it's done something to it It's wrinkled it You guys wrinkles a pickle Wrinkle

Well I just said the word wrinkle I'm trying and trying– – See it ain't easy, man – You try to combine pickle and wrinkle together – Pinkle – Pinkle

Oh this is a little sweet It's still absolutely horrible – No this is not bad What would leave that little brown residue? Sorry, I normally don't do this Lick a harmonica

– It seems like cheating I'm gonna do it too – [Rhett] Well it's using your mouth for the pickle tasting – It's sweet, right? – It's sweet and savory at the same time – It's some form of candy

Mm – [Stevie] You ready? – Oh, I think I got it – [Stevie] Three, two, one – Wrinkle – Coke

Coca-Cola – [Stevie] What did you say, Rhett? – I said wrinkle (crew laughs) I had no guess I don't think it's Coke – Pringles? – I don't think it's Coke

Because it wouldn't have that residue on it (Link spits) – [Stevie] Okay, here's your hint – That wasn't right? – [Stevie] No but you are in the right family – Okay – That's a beverage

– [Stevie] So this pickle gets to the root of the problem – Root beer – Root beer! – [Stevie] Oh no, I think Rhett got that one – I mean the hint can't have the word in it, Micah That's like giving half the answer

– Hey Micah (clicks tongue) I got you I got you, bro (funky music) – Purple – It looks like, like a raw tuna slice, to me

– Purple pickle – It's not purple, that's pink – Purkle – This is pink, man That's flesh

This is a flesh pickle – Man, you keep saying flesh pickle, and you keep iterating on that, you know what you're gonna get to You're gonna get back to dickle again – Oh Smells good

– This one smells sweet (Link clears throat) Oh my – I don't like pickles I think – You can't judge a pickle by what's happening right now I love pickles and I haven't liked any of these

– Ooh, ooh I know what this is too I got this one – Hold on, hold on – I got this one

I'm not telling you anything but I'm saying, it's taking me, I'm ready to celebrate – I'm gonna get it wrong and then get it with Micah's hint, that's what I'm gonna do – I'm gonna get this right and then I'm gonna celebrate – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one – Champagne! – Champagne! (crew laughs) I said champagne but I was doing the thing

– It doesn't matter, we got it right, we both got it right – [Stevie] You're both really close, but I'm gonna look for the exact thing – Prosecco (crew laughs) Strawberry wine – Beer

– [Stevie] This pickle tickles me pink – Pink champagne, pink wine! – Pink grapefruit champagne – [Stevie] What is pink wine called? – Rose – Yeah (Rhett and crew laughing) – You know what, Link? Hey man

Truce You can drink the pickle wine (laughs) – You know in France, they only drink this in the summer Not me! (laughs) (funky music) Here's just a cucumber, just laying there – But again, it has the wrinkle of a pickle

These are very floppy too – What on earth, this has got a, this smells like a schoolboy Like trying to go to his first dance Is this cologne? – I'm glad we don't hang out outside (chuckles) of this Anymore

(chuckles) I don't know what's happened to you – I remember the first cologne I ever– – Smells like a schoolboy! – It was like a generic– (Rhett laughs) The first cologne I ever got as a schoolboy was called Big Man, and it was like, it was very generic – Ah man – It smelled like this (Rhett grunts) (spits) You have a spit bucket! This is right in front of me, man

– That was for the schoolboy comment I know the family, but I don't know, I'm gonna have to– (Link spits) – It's cleaner – Well it's a cleaner of some kind, but what is it? It's something you put on your body if you're a schoolboy (chuckles) ♪ Schoolboy pickle ♪ All right, here we go, let's guess – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one

– Soap? – Hand soap – [Stevie] You're close – Deodorant – Body wash – This pickle– – Shampoo

– Is real suave, oh, Rhett got it (Rhett chuckles) You know those schoolboys constantly shampoo – Three to one, man, you're pulling ahead – Well four to one, actually – Oh gosh, it's citrusy though

(funky music) – Okay Link, I'm up four to one, but in the name of gentlemen's gentlemantanry, I'm gonna give you three points if you get this right – How about four points? – No 'cause then you could win, it's just you could tie How about that? – I want four points – Okay, four points – Okay, you're quite the gentleman

Oh – Oh gosh, wait 'til you get a whiff of this – Oh I just did! – (chuckles) Oh oh! – It's a stinky – Oh, that's– – It's a stinky pickle – Whoa, that's bad! Whoa that is intense! (Link gags) – It takes your breath away

My eyes are watering You think I'm gonna put that in my mouth? – You got to, man! You got to! You gotta put it in your mouth! Put the pickle in your mouth! – I can't decide if it smells like fish or, I don't want this to drip on my– (Rhett gags) – Oh gosh! – I can't decide if it's fish or like, a bodily excretion (gags) – I wanted to say durian at first, but it's so much worse than durian 'Cause I actually like durian – (gags) The smell is so bad and now, I'm not putting my mouth in that, on that, around that

– Put your mouth in it See if you could do that – If you're able to put that in your mouth and keep it there and guess– – I'm gonna side tongue it – You win, man – I'm side tonguing it

  1. Do you two legit not hang out with each other anymore? I guess I get how that could happen. I know my husband and I are usually ready to kill each other by the end of a vacation and spending too much time together.
