Great Moments in Thanksgiving

Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and we're throwing a bit of a shindig here at Casa de K. We've got a big 20 lb. bird, Yukon Gold potatoes for mashing, other fixin's, and a chocolate cake for dessert. Most of tonight and tomorrow will be spent cooking and cleaning.

In recent years, we've been curious about trying the "Turducken," that magical creature made up of a chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey. We haven't tried it yet, mainly because I'm kind of set on getting a free-range turducken, and I have not yet been successful getting the duck to eat the chicken. I don't know how I'm going to get the turkey to eat the duck and chicken.

I think the food industry has really dropped the ball on the whole "animal inside another animal" concept. I'm personally trying to market an "Allchickler," which is a rattlesnake stuffed inside a chicken that's been eaten by an alligator. I got the idea from something I passed on the side of the road the other day.

Also, one of these years I plan on stuffing an eagle inside a lion in order to make "griffin."

Here is one of my favorite moments in Thanksgiving history: the "Turkey Drop" episode of WKRP in Cincinnati. This whole sequence builds up to a beautiful punchline.

I am remiss in not commenting sooner that you have given us not only the finest turducken joke that ever was, but very likely the finest turducken joke that will ever be.
