Makes sense to me.

Save the neck for me, Clark.

In our family of six boys, we used to fight over the heart, gizzard, liver and assorted turkey innards as we waited for the big bird to be unstuffed, carved up and served, only to be rabidly and ravenously consumed. Much like watching our Detroit Lions become fodder for any team in the NFL in a nationwide televised slaughter every turkey day !!!

Hey, it's a family tradition. You can't go against that.

A few years ago we had an extended local power outage over the holidays. A neighbor decided the best way to keep the contents of their freezer safe was to put it in their swimming pool, not their best move.

"You know Mark, this is the tastiest chlorine basted turkey ever. What hardware store did you buy it from?"

I'm pretty sure he didn't get this defrosting tip from the Butterball Turkey Hotline.

Water conducts heat better than air. As long as the bird is sealed in plastic, it makes sense if the pool temperature is right.

I wonder how many times he's had the turkey stolen by a local gator who wandered past the pool.

As long as it's got its water wings on.

"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could swim."


5* Snork to Rod Nunley!
