Fare Most Fowl

Turducken may sound like a German city, but no, this umlaut-free word is actually a hybrid meat. It’s a sort of poultry loaf.

This emerging Thanksgiving tradition is made from, drum roll please, turkey, duck and chicken. It’s three! three! three! kinds of bird flu in one. (Since it’s pieced together from different sources, why not call it Türduckenstein, or Frankenfowl? Hey, even the German thing still works.)

Don’t mind me, I don’t eat animals, so all flesh repasts, even those I used to regularly consume, seem like something out of a grotesque horror movie. Tomorrow, I will simply load up on tasty, healthy white carbs.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner, as always. But remember, you can’t spell turducken without “turd.”

Bogs,

Do Turducken have beaks or bills? Do they quack or cluck (And is that in German or English?)? I am sure they have feathers...don't they? Do you suppose the evil Doctor Mephesto on South Park has created a four-assed Turducken yet? This is a lot to ponder. I think I'll just have a bean burrito and call it a day.

hell - I've seen that, but it only comes in a family size portion...

fatty ~ people here do turkey on Christmas as well... bbq is more of a summer thing, but then, it is summer where you are in December, I believe?

it's understandable you wouldn't have Thanksgiving in Oz, since many of your founders did not go there voluntarily...
