Operation Turkey Fry

Operation Turkey Fry...

...your step-by-step guide to succulent turkey perfection. Deep frying a turkey will produce the juiciest, most flavorful bird you'll ever lay your taste buds upon. It also makes for a fairly entertaining afternoon. These ancient instructions, handed down to me in part by Mr. Philip Wise, have been around since 1995, with every single turkey a winner. Can't go wrong with a track record like that, eh?

Here's the end result:

My thermometer busted, allowing the oil to get to what I figure was over 400 degrees. The result is one ultra-crispy turkey. Looks like something out of the movie Alien.

A Concerned Turkey

Turkeys are amazing animals. Even when faced with death and 350-degree torture treatment, they still keep abreast of world news: Turkey expresses concern over Ukraine's political crisis.

Turkey said Thursday that it was concerned about political developments in Ukraine following its disputed presidential election and urged its leaders to resolve the problem peacefully.

The article doesn't mention which turkey said that, but I'm sure he/she speaks for all of them.
