pickle in a Big Mac


Senior Member
Hi there,

" It really never occurred to me that this was going to come back and repeat on me like a pickle in a Big Mac."
from A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

It's JJ, one the main characters who is saying that when he lied about his suicidal reason he didn't think to see the others once again.
Now my question is about ( a pickle in a Big Mac)?
I really can't see the relation between pickle in a Big Mac and the repetition. Is that because a Big Mac probably has many pickles??

Many thanks in advance.
