I was discussing the mythological turducken beast with a coworker, and we decided there is no reason to stop with a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey. I would then stuff that turkey in a pig, stuff that in a sheep, and stuff that in a cow. You could feed a small town with just one of those bad boys. And if you wanted to get really crazy, you’d stuff the cow in an elephant and the elephant in a whale. Then you could have the biggest Thanksgiving dinner ever.
I have never had a turducken, so I did a Google image search. It looks kind of gross, but I bet it tastes divine.
And here’s a little excerpt from the Wikipedia article on the subject: “The largest recorded nested bird roast is 17 birds, attributed to a royal feast in France in the early 19th century—a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an Ortolan Bunting and a Garden Warbler.”
By the way, I'll be heading down to southern Utah tomorrow for the weekend, so if there's a dearth of posts for a few days, do not despair (although I admit I'd find it extremely flattering if you despaired just a little).
