    but every year about this time I am reminded of a burning question about stuffing(!!). I am pretty sure this won't work, but have any of you EVER tried to stuff a turkey with popcorn stuffing? I can't imagine it would come out as any more than a sodden, inedible mass, but there is enough of the little kid left in me that still wonders....
    See? Urban rumor runs amuck, as usual. Hmm...I wonder if those two guys on the dish/cable channel have ever looked into this?
    Oh well, back to the woodstove!

    I am apalled, disgusted and rofling. I just postponed my c-scope until January, I figure the year could only get better after that.
    Visions of exploding turkeys, not pretty, but fun to contemplate!

    I don't know where I found this poem but I thought about it when you mentioned popcorn stuffing! I am assuming you were considering popped popcorn though, not unpopped.

    The Turkey POPPED Out of the Oven!

    The turkey popped out of the oven,
    and rocketed into the air;
    It knocked every plate off the table,
    and partly demolished a chair.

    It recocheted into a corner,
    and burst with a deafening boom;
    Then splattered all over the kitchen,
    completely obscuring the room.

    It stuck to the walls and windows,
    it totally coated the floor;
    There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
    where there had never been turkey before.

    It blanketed every appliance,
    it smeared every saucer and bowl;
    There was no way I could stop it --
    that turkey was out of control!

    I scraped and I scraped with displeasure,
    and thought with chagrin as I mopped;
    That I would never again stuff a turkey
    with popcorn that hadn't been popped!

    (Author Unknown - anyone know?)

    LOL...what? I'm completely lost by this(I must have missed the colonoscopy thread!).
    You want to stuff a turkey with unpopped popcorn? Give it a try and report back :baby04:

    Id send this idea into those guys on the MythBusters show on Discovery channel or one of those cable networks. They would be sure to do this under controlled and safe circumstances and report back. Or the next time your down at the local waterhole, bring up the subject and theres bound to be a pair of adventurous beer soaked souls who will run home and try it out and report back. :rolleyes:

    Okay-after Christmas I'll try it-New Years would be appropriate...I will let you know how it "comes out"! As far as the local watering hole...well...those fellows get a little peculiar now and then-I have visions of an angry possum, a scattered bag of popcorn, and a handful of careening "experimenters" being chased by both the possum and the local hound.
