Apparently you can make a turkey out of ANYTHING

Apparently there is a competition each year called the "Turkey-shaped Jell-O® Mold Competition".
You come up with some combination of ingredients (which may or may not actually include turkey), stuff it all into a turkey-shaped mold, and wait for the love and adoration to start pouring in.

Here's a site with pictures of some of last year's submissions.
Here are the ones from 2007.
And 2006.

Notable combinations include these:

Turkey Twinkie Pumpkin Pie
Chewing Gum Turkey
Hermaphrodite Turkey
Guac-A-Turkey (avocado gelatin)
Cow Dung Turkey
Rice Krispy Treat Turkey
Chopped Liver Turkey
Kahlua Jello Turkey

I have no idea what to say about this, other than the fact that I may never trust turkey-shaped things ever again.

I mean, cow dung is bad enough, but liver??

I find these greatly disturbing. And they get worse with each picture (running to th' loo ).........okay, I'm back! Sorry 'bout that, Janna. And...hey wait! I like liver! Cooked of course and with onions. YUM!

Actually I found the language of the descriptions somewhat disconcerting...And the purpose of all this was? I don't even eat turkey turkey, no reason for it to exist as a food source for humans

Looks gross.

Really, anything edible made in a mold other than Chocolate scares me.

My doctor tried making me get turkey shaped suppositories once but I was too chicken to try it.

Marilyn said...

It seems more like some kind of bizarre art project than food.

Janna said...

Thom: I hate it too! A lot!

Subtorp77: Ack! My mom loves liver and onions. Dad and I both hate it.

Grace: I'm not sure, but I think the purpose was to give the Jello people some free advertising. Hard to tell.

Lynda: Very!

Evenrant: You are very wise!

Whall: Good thing. You might have laid an egg.

Marilyn: I agree!

Janna obscure reference; "Boss Hogg" ate raw liver for breakfast on the ol' "Dukes of Hazzard" show. And I'll go ya one worse than that( get your barf bag ready ), my Pop used to eat beef tongue***choke***!

Janna said...

Subtorp77: Beef tongue... (!!!) (*gag*)
If I had to pick a fictional TV personality as "most likely to eat raw liver for breakfast", I think Boss Hogg would probably be it.
I almost said "Ozzy Ozbourne", but he's not fictional.
Although sometimes I wonder.

Janna, I'll spare you the rumours about Ozzy( and Alice Cooper ). You prob'ly know most of them( founded or not )....oooh my stomach hurts just thinkin' about it!

Janna said...

Subtorp77: The only rumor I remember is the one about Ozzy biting the head off a live bat.

Anonymous said...

Janna, rumour confirmed in an interview with Ozzy, a few years back. He did but thought it to be a rubber toy bat. He didn't fancy the regime of rabies shots, either! Ouchies! I'm sure there's a link for it...somewhere, wot?

Reading "Avocado gelatin" made me gag. Ew.

Janna said...

Subtorp: I vaguely remember hearing that too... that he thought it was a fake bat. Not sure I believe him. ;)

Gwen: Me too!

Janna, with all the crap he's been on, it's no wonder he can remember anything, wot?

Janna said...

Subtorp: True!
