Celebrity Roast: Send Me Your Turkey Pictures
In roughly 30 hours the bird you see above will be transformed from raw, dripping, giblet-stuffed carcass to lovely roast Thanksgiving turkey. I'm sure there are people who will be celebrating Thanksgiving with ham or fish, but a big basted Butterball is what most of us will be gnawing on tomorrow. The roast turkey is an icon of the American autumn.
I tend to take pictures of turkeys I have known and eaten. This year I want you to do the same. Call it "turkey porn" if you like. (And notice how in the photo above the turkey is wearing a fishnet body stocking. Hmmm....) Anyway, when your turkey is done tomorrow snap a digital photo and e-mail a JPEG to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure the file isn't too humongous. Include a sentence or two about your Thanksgiving meal (i.e.: "Homemade cranberry sauce!," "Turns out Bev's new boyfriend is allergic to oysters," "Grandpa lost his teeth!"). I'll post as many as I can on my blog tomorrow and Friday. Let's assemble the world's greatest gallery of Thanksgiving turkeys.
We had many fine entries in yesterday's canine caption contest. I narrowed it down to my three favorites, each of whom will win a Post Pulitzer postcard. They are:
Would those three readers please send an e-mail to email@example.com with the address, so I can post their prize? Thanks for all the fun entries.
