SOTB: Thanksgiving food and fights edition

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and here's wishing retailers better success in this year's holiday shopping season than the last two:

1) 10 Awesome Turkey Recipes: BuzzFeed (via Fritinancy)
A couple of years ago, I featured the understated elegance of the bacon-wrapped, turkey-bacon combo, the Turbaconducken. That's nothing compared to this, the TurDunkin: "Turkey brined in Dunkin Donuts coolattas, stuffed with munchkins and served with coffee gravy and mashed hash browns." Yum!

From Unwholesome Foods

2) How to Make an All-Instant Thanksgiving Dinner: Wired Science

As we continue our tour of the culinary depths, let's turn to Wired Science and its quest to make an all-instant thanksgiving dinner. Apart from the canned cranberry in the photo, they were able to find all the other important ingredients in cans from the turkey to the mashed potatoes and gravy.

3) This outta be good: Indexed

4) Turkey Tussle: Slate
Slate's guide to your annual Thanksgiving arguments with three of the hot topics being TSA pat-downs, extending the Bush tax cuts and how/whether to cut the deficit. Quoting Loudon Wainwright's Thanksgiving prayer: "If I argue with a loved one, Lord, please make me the winner," Slate provides the ammunition you need to upset one or more family members around the table.

5) Thanksgiving Seating Chart: College Humor

6) Saks Fifth Avenue: 3D Holiday Windows
A few weeks ago, I linked to a beautiful video mapping show projected on Prague's famous astronomical clock. Now, here's Sacks Fifth Avenue using video mapping for holiday windows on a grand scale.

That's it! Back soon with more stories from the world of brand strategy and somewhat related topics. More thoughts and comments also available on Twitter (@martinjbishop).

Sprinkles on turkey...clearly I've been missing out all these years! Fun links and pictures-- thanks for posting. I linked to your blog post about the Carnival Splendor a couple days ago and would like to hear your thoughts. Happy Thanksgiving!

Interesting, if somewhat gross and indeed unwholesome...Maybe if I had put sprinkles on our turkey and stuffed it with Munchkins my picky son would actually have eaten his dinner on Thursday! Thanks for sharing and providing some funny dinner-table conversation for tonight!
