As the Thanksgiving holiday nears for many of us, I wanted to share a hilarious turkey blog by Dave Barry. Hope you have a laugh and enjoy!
"STEP ONE in preparing the Thanksgiving turkey is to let it thaw (allow six to eight years). STEP TWO is to reach your hand inside the slimy, dark chest cavity of the turkey and remove the giblets. Be careful, because you are intruding upon the territory of the deadly North American giblet snake, which can grow, coiled inside an innocent-looking twelve pound turkey, to a length of fifty-five feet. In one of the most horrifying moments in cooking history, one of these monsters attacked Julia Child during her live 1978 Thanksgiving TV special; it would have strangled her if she had not known exactly where to insert her baster. Few people who have seen this chilling footage have failed to order the videotape from PBS."
