    "This is Deputy Dill (left) and Prickly Pete (right) the criminal cactus. I got the deputy while I was in TX — my good friend and I each got pickle tattoos for our love of pickles, but I added a little bit of ✨spice✨ to mine! After a while, I figured he should have a nemesis to battle...and that’s when Prickly Pete was born."
