Turducken: the 'other' white meat

When you're staring down the barrel of eight shifts in a row, as I just have, subbing heaps and heaps of stories ('heaps', for those who don't know, is journo-jargon for 'shitloads') I think you tend to go a little bit crazy, in that the smallest thing can seem incredibly funny.

Take this for example: Japan's hot dog hot shot prefers tofu (Yes, that's my tacky headline).

Scroll down to the bottom. Check out this par:
"Competitive eating is a popular sport in America, particularly at holidays, with contests for everything from chicken wings to "turducken", turkey stuffed with duck stuffed with chicken."

Turducken? Turducken! It really exists. If you don't believe me, check out wikipedia. To mis-quote an old burger ad: "It's meat and stuffing and meat and stuffing and meat... and stuffing".
