The Uppity Bastard

Smug Life



These geniuses at (WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED THAT BACON HAD IT’S OWN WEBSITE?!) have constructed a Turducken (chicken-inside-a-duck-inside-a-turkey) covered in bacon.  Not just on the outside either.  The individual pieces of Chicken and duck inside the 15lb Turkey are wrapped as well.  Click the bacontoday link above for the story and some awesome pictures.  In other news, for dinner tonight I am making a Pastrami sandwich stuffed with tacos stuffed with Ramen noodles.  I am Top Chef.

ONE: Really? When we met by the Sticky Tree, I thought I said near the River That’s Not as Wide as the Really Wide River.

MAKER: That is what you said. I must have gotten turned around at the Sharp Shells.

MAKER: I must have just spaced.
