Friday FAIL

In Canada we will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day on Monday, and here's what every busy cook needs to make the meal special. An inflatable turkey.

It's available here,  and this is the product description:

This inflatable turkey, complete with an oven-perfect skin, is almost good enough to eat.

The next time you invite people over for Thanksgiving, serve them this turkey first and watch their horrified expressions ... but be sure to have real turkey or they'll probably stuff you with it.

If eating turkey isn't your thing, there's meatloaf

For dessert, how about a lovely cupcake?

Or a nice slice of fruitcake.

Yum yum.

This is a Friday Fail for sure. Yuck.

Thank you for sharing Hermione.


Spanky said...

Ick! That's for sharing, that's funny!

Roz said...

Definitely a fail. Funny though, the look on guests faces would be priceless!

Minielle Labraun said...

Ewwww! I for one think the meat loaf is the worst looking!
Fail! :-)

Hermione, I wonder if Bonnie's(My Bottom Smarts) delicious meals are depicted in this manner, all these years, would she deserve a good spanking on her bare bottom. Have a good Thanks, and spanks to both of you.

I love the idea of serving the turkey as a joke. I'd try it Christmas but P always cooks Christmas Dinner.

Have wonderful long weekend.

considering how fruitcakes usually taste, I'd consider taking a bite out of the inflated one.

Vinyl chicken and turkey is the favorite food for our little dog. She can chew for weeks.
So they must be tasty, I think....

Yuck in spades. Definitely a fail

Hermione said...

Joey - I really couldn't believe it when I saw it!

Spanky - I wonder who buys these things.

Roz - It would be funny, especially if they were vegetarians.

Minelle - It's pretty gross.

Six - Now now, I'm sure Bonnie is a perfectly wonderful cook, and deserves a spanking for a well-prepared meal.

Ronnie - That's one trick you can't play. I'll enjoy the longer break.

Mick - That's exactly what I thought too.

Bas - I forgot, dogs love vinyl toys. Maybe that's what they're for.

Sunnygirl - Fail times four!

humor is always good, but this might be expensive just for a quick laugh... Neither a fail nor a win

ick. I think I'll pass on the inflatable feast. Happy Thanksgiving!

Fondles said...

EEEEK. that should be banned from the shelves altogether. funny. thanks for sharing.

Erica said...

Is it just me, or is the fruitcake the exact same thing as the meatloaf, but with some fake fruit on top?

I'm with Mick. Fruitcake is best used as a doorstop.

Hermione said...

Red - I agree, a bit pricey just for a laugh, unless there's a roomful of hungry guests.

DR - I'd prefer the real thing.

Fondles - I suspect it arrives in a plain brown wrapper:)

Erica - They do resemble one another. I'm no fan of fruitcake either. It's immediately regifted.
