If you live in the United States, then thanksgiving is coming up in a few weeks.

Canadian thanksgiving is different, of course, and has already passed. I celebrated that. We had a turducken. It was fantastic. For American thanksgiving, however, a different approach is appropriate, and I, for one, would like to have a turducken.

What is a turducken? In case you don't know, it's the only invertebrate mammal. It's natural habitat is Louisiana, although it's perfectly happy to sit around in the fridge for a couple of days. The turducken I had for Canadian thanksgiving looked like this:

Once out of the oven, it bears a resemblance to a de-boned turkey stuffed with a de-boned duck stuffed with a de-boned chicken with bits of sausage and cajun seasoning.

Now, some people erroneously believe that some people erroneously believe that famous American football personality John Madden himself invented turducken. Those people are in the wrong. John Madden did indeed create the first turducken in a genetic engineering experiment in his warehouse in Oakland, California. In an exclusive interview for GFC, John commented, "that's big time football!"

Big John Madden

In agreement with him was ex-Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan, who added, "I firmly believe that Robert Lee is the best midfielder in the country."

Little Kevin Keegan
(or that's what my mum calls him, anyway)
