Final Results for November 21st Poll: Bread, Mayo Saves Turkey!

WE asked.
YOU answered.
Here's how YOU prefer to recycle your leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

53% of you slap your meat between a couple of slices of bread (probably white, dough-flavored Williams bread), slather it in artery-clogging egg white mush, and scarf it like the proverbial junkyard dog on a weekend bender. (That's a new proverb, by the way. Take it down, pass it around.)

Tied for second with 18% each are a delicious shake consisting of the entire Thanksgiving meal blended into an easily quaffed puree, and the belief that eating turkey ought to be a capital crime. Punishable by having to eat soy products.

A meager 4% of you just nuke the bird in the microwave. What is going on with this country?! Use those microwave ovens, people! That's what they're there for — to be used!

Here, in super-fun bar graph format, is the same thing I just wrote:


Come back every Hump Day for more turkey and stuffing!
