A PICKLER FETCH is a fetch that is issued against a table. But before it actually takes place and anything is returned to you it must be: cleansed of any impurities, placed in a dark mysterious place, covered with an un-named substance that makes it feel crunchy when retrieved, allowed to age for a long period of time, and be handled by an internally secret processes. When returned to you it looks similar to what you wanted but it not exactly and you must try again. There are many varieties to this FETCH. Some are the Bread And Butter of the database provider and some are varieties not related to being Kosher. The cure to the PICKLER FETCH problem is the use a larger vat, a faster ageing process, or upgrade the internally secret process. All of which will cost you more $$$$.
