Time to ditch the graphic of the bacon-wrapped turkey. Please!

I beg you.

  1. THANK-YOU. I don't know what it is, but I find it disturbing!

    1. Since day one I thought that fricking thing was an armadillo. It's gotta go.

        HA HA HA, me, too since day one. Not sure why a bacon-wrapped turkey should look so scary when it can look like a thing of beauty. Doesn't this look much more appealing?

        I guess I should somewhat thank Chow for that armadillo shot...I intentionally did NOT wrap my turkey that way so as not to create my own scary beast. :)

          sorry to say I don't find either terribly appealing. but i do have to agree that the armadillo description is particularly apt.

              The armadillo must have been lonely. It was kind of you to find him a friend! I'd like that to be the replacement shot, please! <holding up a lighter>

                I thought it was a roast from whoville.

          I'm glad i'm not the only one who kept thinking they had come up with a recipe for roasted armadillo.

        3. Two armadillos mating.

          Thank you for saying it, toodie jane! That is one ugly beastie.

          1. The fake Halloween blood and the glowing jello mold really need to be retired as well.

              I agree, bushwickgirl--it's really unappetizing.

              And toodie jane, I didn't realize what that weird lobster/armadillo thing was until now. Thank you for clarifying that!

            2. That things freaks me out! Always reminds me of an armadillo too! Please get rid of it.
