Dead Busty Turkey: a "what the hell?" digression

We beg your forgiveness.

This is not something you should have to see.

We really have no business showing it to you.

We don't even really know what we're dealing with here. It's not suicide food, exactly. It's something worse. Far, far worse.

Deep breath.

See, when you combine misogyny with good old contempt for animals (and a lemon cut in half), this is what you get: a "hilarious" cooked turkey, its crisp skin stretched tautly over human-looking breasts.

The worst thing about this—apart from the "naked lady/turkey carcass" aspect—is that more than one person had the idea to fashion and market fake heads to place atop dead poultry.

Need proof? See our first "what the hell?" digression. And, if you're up for it, here's our second, of a different "what the hell?"-provoking nature.

This stuff seriously baffles me. I've showed previous posts (such as this one) to my family before, and they don't see how seriously messed up this all is.

Ignore the moral issues with meat. How can you possibly think it's okay to portray this carcass, cooked, which you intend to eat, as sexy? How is this the product of a stable, well-adjusted mind?

Is this not something akin to finding a dead body (again, ignoring any implications that eating meat might be wrong) and putting edible underwear on it?

Benji-EXACTLY! Thanks for coming up with the perfect metaphor to very concisely unpack what's wrong with this image (besides the obvious)!

Mmm nice nipples ! Got to love naked Turkey Tits.

GET A LIFE people !

Flower lovers could whine about using them for garnishes but they don't.

It's meat. It's protein.

It's pictures like this that make me so happy I'm a vegetarian.

Holy fucking crap, I agree with Benji. Even when I ate meat (although unlike Anonymous, I wasn't...er...turned on by it) I would have found this intensely disturbing. Carol Adams was right. Blech.
