Words I'm Not Looking Up (First and perhaps last in a series on words that exist despite the handicap of not existing)


Some years ago, I ordered some chicory coffee and some beignet mix from a company called Cajun Creations, at which time I subscribed to their e-mail list.

Since then, every year around Thanksgiving, I get e-mails about deals on turduckens. I knew they were some kind of multibird bird, but never bothered to read more until today, when I finally read enough to learn the definition of turducken. From the Cajun Creations e-mail:
Turducken is the true taste of Louisiana. We take a turkey, duck, and a chicken, and de-bone all three (except for the legs and wings of the turkey). We put the chicken inside the turkey and then the duck inside the chicken.

It's going to take a long time to sort out my feelings about all this.

It has the word "turd" in it, so I'll pass. (Yes, I'm 12.)

Yeah, it takes till at least age 13 to appreciate turd -- an acquired taste, don't you know.
