When it comes to Thanksgiving, people are always looking for creatively delicious dishes to serve at the grand table. While most families will go for the traditional turkey, there are always those who go all out with the famous turducken, which defies all logic – or maybe, is the most logical thing on earth. (Read about the history of the turducken here.)
Last year, though, we saw something that blasts the turducken out of the water: the Cthurkey.
Old it may be, it is just awesomely weird – not to mention kinda gross-looking – that we can’t help but share it with you.
The Cthurkey is the creation of Rusty Eulberg, a database administrator from Lubbock, Texas. In an interview, Rusty gives some info about the origins of this horrendous – but certainly unique – thing:
…wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours. Jenny is a big fan of Cthulhu so we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. The next year I made a Cthicken; the same thing using squid instead of octopus and a chicken. (Source)
So, if you’re looking for some last minute inspiration for Thanksgiving, and you’re an H.P. Lovecraft fan, the Cthurkey is your best bet.
Here are more photos, which will either make you go wow or cringe.
What’s the verdict? Would you take a bite?
