The Soup SHADES General Hospital’s Pickle-Lila Storyline!


E!'s Joel McHale has to find new sudsers to poke fun at on The Soup, now that Kyle Lowder and Ronn Moss are no longer saying one another's character names oh-so-dramatically on The Bold and the Beautiful. Last night the lucky soap to get razzed by the jokester was ABC Daytime's General Hospital.

It appears McHale doesn't quite get the historical significance of how Pickle-Lila relish will save ELQ. Watch the clip below!

    No harlee490 this is a current s/l on GH. They obviously made it funnier by editing it together like they did for the soup. Tracy got a jar of this in her father’s will and it was the last jar of relish. They want to market the product again to make money for ELQ and save the company.

    Hmmm…OK thanks for the heads up, I thought is was just to poke fun. JE can play anything!!! I know her talents…not from ABC GH but from CBS & GL as “Carrie Marler”…Doug Marland gave her such a deep, sensative S|L on DID…she should had won the Emmy. JE was hauntingly beautiful and played with making fans love Carrie but hate Carrie…Ron should take notes on DID story….sorry ;) :O

    Was this a shade?

    This has been making the rounds already on Twitter, but in a positive light. As in, publicity for GH.

    And I actually did find this funny, and it’s even funnier if you don’t watch GH. I don’t know if this is off-putting to anyone.

    And for anyone who doesn’t know what this is about: this relish, called Pickle-Lila, is actually a VERY important part of history for GH. It is what helped save ELQ, the oldest and biggest conglomerate on the show, about 25 years ago. The relish itself is almost like a character, an honorary Q.

    I don’t think it’s a shade.

    It’s funny. And even the dialogue in those scenes is funny. So it’s really hilarious. I can laugh about it.

    It’s not like when “The Soup” used to make fun of Ronn Moss’ acting … that was embarrassing.

    LOVE Joel McHale and The Soup! But it’s always great when he and Chelsea handler from Chelsea Lately would run soap clips to make fun of.

    I have always loved the running gag of the clip from Passions where Chad kept saying “But I’m not gay”, they even brought the actor on there after showing it here and there for a while.

    And of course Chelsea Lately showing clips from One Life to Live like the stuffed beaver that everyone would talk to lol. And a clip of Dorian that even Robin Strasser was going off about from what Chelsea said.

    I don’t watch GH enough to know about this relish story. See people like me who don’t watch it, don’t know that history think it comes across as weird. But yeah obviously someone at ABC gave them all those clips.

    They also mocked the show when John hilariously somersaulted from bullets flying at him back when that raging virus was killing people left and right last year in Port Charles.

    Well, it is a silly and STUPID story that a darn jar of RELISH will save a company.

    BUT it’s GH, so OF COURSE It will! My only question is WHY DID THE DARN RELISH leave the market in the first place? You would think that if a simple jar of relish saved a MULTI-NATIONAL ENTERPRISE that it would still be on the market making money for the “saved” company?! I mean, HEINZ KETCHUP is still on the market.

    This 50th Anniversary show for GH doesn’t need any clips in it because the new regime is doling up all the past storylines and passing them off as their own new inventions!

    SCOTT – LUKE – LAURA. (done, let’s do again)

    ICE PRINCESS – HELENA – THE SPENCERS (done, let’s do it again)

    ANNA – DUKE (done, let’s do it again)

    FRISCO – FELICICA (done, let’s do it again)

    D.I.D. Stories (done done and done AGAIN)

    DUMB COPS (staple)

    VAMPIRES in PORT CHARLES (done but they were on the wrong side of the tracks the last time so now its’ DONE OVER)

    Sorry, it just seems unoriginal THOUGH I like every single cast member

    It’s hiliarous and it is good to know that the show doesn’t take itself seriously….however, considering we are trying to gain new viewers…this clip probably won’t help that effort.
