Yeah, and the tendency to photograph the thing as a kind of pent-up bursting outward doesn't help.

The turducken may have been made famous by John Madden, who likes to show off a six-legged variety on Thanksgiving day [American] football games.

And then he yells "Boom!" and slams his head face first into it.

It's not exactly "It's a Wonderful Life" but, by God, it's Christmasy.

Heh. Touche. I suppose I just don't make the association, since the word is pronounced as if it were spelled "croppy."

I guess this isn't the time to go into my recipe for a festive holiday Shitake mushroom casserole....

Christmas crackers are traditional crackers at Christmas dinners - kids love these! They require a helping hand to pull so it's all joint fun - when the cracker goes 'bang!', the contents are extruded.

this fine British store has a good range of luxury crackers - the hats come with it too. I like Marks & Spencer - their food range has got to be one of the best in the country

Don't forget, crackers are traditionally opened with pudding NOT the start of the meal. I get so aggrecated by people's lack of self control

I meant to ask...how does Marks and Spencer compare to a fine source of food like, say, TESCO?

All kidding aside: my wife and I found a ham and cheese sandwich at Tesco this past summer that we would often find ourselves craving throughout the day. Went well with a bottle of cheap Tesco red wine!

What if you eat pudding at the start of the meal?

Heh. I used to think Tesco food was awful. They have a 'Tescoes Finest' range which is interesting - a bit too rarefied for my taste. With discrimination, they have some great items in their stocks. Even the newspapers recommends some of their free-range eggs over Sainsburys.

Marks & Spencer is quite special - there isn't much in their food range I won't touch. I've even tried some of their prepared meals which is very unusual for me - and look! I'm still here

We almost always pull the crackers at the start - otherwise we never get the Christmas hats on until dessert.
