I only like the white meat, fresh, not from a roll or frozen
then thawed. Colonel Harland Sanders was not a turkey
sandwich. He was a pioneer in the fastfood industry. On the
Chicago Commodities Exchange, investors can speculate in
Turkey Futures. The Colonel renamed Kentucky Fried
Chicken, KFC after fried became associated with clogged
arteries and fatal heart attacks.
Leftovers are OK, like after Thanksgiving Dinner at Buzz and
Sandys in Mendocino – sliced turkey breast with California
stuffing and cranberry sauce on fresh sourdough rye. Zen
Flash: I just realized – the pickle. Ukranian dill. Like my
mother used to make. Sliced lengthwise then piled up beside
the Main Event. The largest serving of take-out offered by
KFC is called the Barrel of Chicken.
Turkeys have been known to stare up at a rain storm until they
drown. Colonel Sanders put the fear of God into every young
rooster. I mean how would you like to have your head chopped
off, be hacked into chunks, then smothered in some secret
crap before being boiled in hot industrial oil?
Recently, Turkey was in the news because of the Armenian
Massacre, which should not be confused with the Hungarian
Rhapsody or the Blue Danube Waltz. After veteran American
pilots shot down barrels of rookie Japanese pilots in a critical
Pacific battle, it was called The Great Marianna Turkey Shoot.
Layers of turkey on a slice of white bread with a puddle of gravy
slopped on then heated is called a hot turkey sandwich.
Last thought, best thought: Its hard to find a turkey sandwich in
Tokyo because most Japanese dont like the smell.
