    I might just fry my turkey frozen just to spite them. :D

    The sad thing is that for people who don't know what they're doing, this could actually be useful advice on how to properly fry a turkey.

    As a personal safety tip? Sure. So, true to form, they have to go and paint it as a national-security emergency of impending doom instead.

    Apparently Chicken Little is actually a great, big turkey.

    Ah, I remember the old fashioned Thanksgiving dinners we had when I was a child. Grandma and Grandpa and all my aunts and uncles and cousins, gathered 'round the table just like a Norman Rockwell painting. And Mom, dear sweet Mom, in her festive full-body asbestos suit with the helmet and goggles, dropping the plump turkey into the turkey fryer with those tongs. Until that one year when she didn't have time to fully defrost it.

    Thanksgiving isn't the same without Mom and her fried turkey... :(:(

    That happened to your mother, too? What a shame. One year when I was a kid, we lost three mothers that way just on our block.

    Thankfully Janet "Barbecue" Napolitano is working to improve our cooking habits through better grilling. Or am I getting my Janets confused?

    I guess if I was a turkey, that fryer would look like a terrorist plot. Which explains why Janet & Co think this is a national security issue.

    I always though the whole idea was kind of weird, until I bought one to try out at our cabin a couple years ago.

    It is the BEST way to cook a turkey. :) My wife can mix up a pack of ready made dressing while I'm burning down the garage cooking the bird, and it's all ready to eat in < 60 minutes.

    Oh, it is the ultimate anti-turkey conspiracy. Until turkey frying became popular, it took a lot longer to cook one than to kill it. Now that those activities are more balanced, we can handle a lot more turkey.

    Doggonit, I love living in Sydney, really I do. I'm thankful :cool: that I live in Australia. But Thursday and Friday are regular working days here, and the only "American food" restaurant in town closed down last year, and y'all are making me hungry for a real turkey dinner with all the trimmings. :(

    Have a good holiday, everyone! :D Have an extra serve of cranberry sauce for me.

    Well, you certainly don't want all those cops and firefighters distracted by turkey fryer fires, do you? Just think what mayhem the terrorists in our midst could do while first responders deal with exploding turkeys!!!
