And my head I'd be a scratchin'

I'm here to admit that when Freakgirl told me she had a turducken for Thanksgiving, I initially thought it was some kind of genetically engineered avian hybrid. I know, I know, but is that idea really any more fantastical than someone stuffing a chicken into a duck into a turkey?I'm asking.

It brings to mind the moment when I realized that baby carrots are not actually baby carrots. I'm fairly bright, I swear.

Yes, but what kind of person would really want to eat something that has the word "turd" in it? Especially when it looks like ass (at least in that visual). It does give a soul pause.

With apologies to my beloved Freakgirl (who said her turducken was to die for), yes, that picture I chose does seem to place the emphasis as turducken. But it's actually overflowing with andouille sausage! Better?

Trust me, many a "turd" joke was made that night.

So, how do you get the duck to eat the chicken? And which came first, the chicken or the sausage?

tim makes a mean turducken . . . and it's amazing!! you should come over.

Andrew, it boggles the mind! Did you see at Deb's that there is also something called fowl de cochon, where the turducken is then stuffed into a suckling pig? Oh, and then they shove a quail in the chicken! I think.

Landis, if I come over, can I snorgle your poochies?
