Thanksgiving is here, and we know that many of you will be cooking a turkey for your celebratory dinner. No doubt your culinary arrangements will include turkey stuffing, as a way to enhance your meal. We’d like to help our readers with their holiday preparations, so we’re posting what you might call an instructional video on how to stuff your turkey. If you’ve never stuffed a turkey before, we think you’ll find this short film educational. If you’re something of a connoisseur on cramming the insides of poultry, it might give you a few new ideas. But one thing we can guarantee is that you will find it different from anything else you may have learned about fowls and their fillings.
The master chef conducting this tutorial is that well-known kitchen maestro, Curly Howard. We feel confident that Curly is well-qualified to guide you through the fine art of how to pack your bird (as Curly himself frequently insists, he knows how). To a job that requires creative resource and digital dexterity, as well as a never-say-die spirit in the face of whatever catastrophes may be lurking behind the mixing bowl, Curly brings an experience in food preparation that is both vast and varied:
Our chef is an expert on such gastronomic tasks as cracking eggs:
Scrubbing (and drying) celery:
Stirring up a bowl of chicken soup:
Buttering a fish:
Preparing pancake batter:
Fixing a ham sandwich:
And mixing punch:
And for which, in order to chill the above brew, he can shave ice:
He is also known for dispensing handy kitchen tips, such as the quickest way to open a can of corned beef:
In all his kitchen endeavors, Curly is aided by his capable and courteous assistants, Larry and Moe:
Curly is also noted for a unique culinary approach that never does anything by halves. Nor by six and seven-eighths, either. (Stoogephiles will know what that means.) Whatever he puts his (extremely limited) brain power to doing, he does with gusto. And if—as invariably happens—whatever he does results in disaster, that’s to be expected. Like death and taxes, Curly screwing up is one of the few certainties in an uncertain world.
In presenting the following instructional video, we’ve made a list of the ingredients you will need, as follows:
- 1 turkey
- 2 separate eggs
- 2 diced potatoes
- 1 pinch(ed) of salt
- 6 oysters (with shells)
- 1 can of peas (can included)
- 1 loaf of bread, soaked well
And now in the video below Curly will show you how to stuff your turkey. Unfortunately, we can’t vouch for the effectiveness of his recipe, since we haven’t tried it for ourselves (as the saying goes, we may be crazy, but we’re not stupid). All we can say is, from here on in you’re on your own.
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk. Happy Thanksgiving.
