The famous turducken - a turkey stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken was once all the rage for the semi-yuppy-try-something-different-non-vegetarian-meat-conscious crowd. It was the small, great crowd pleaser for circles of bird frenzyists and holiday feasters.

Now, an even more elaborate take on this multi-animal/food delight has emerged which can keep you eating the right holiday foods from Halloween to New Year's Eve, (if it doesn't rot first). It's the new "Blackeyedturpumpkinducken," which is a turkey, stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken, stuffed with a pumpkin pie, stuffed with black-eyed peas, with layers of stuffing, candy corn, snickers bars, cranberry sauce and jellied champagne all wedged in between.

"So far, we haven't been able to keep them in the freezers," said local store owner Dan Owens. "Everyone wants the Blackeyedturpumpkinducken even if they don't know what it is exactly."

A survey of the average Joe on the street led us to believe that most people think that it is a special combo meal deal from Kentucky Fried Chicken or Boston Market. Basically, they think what they want, and what they want, is an ultimate selection of sides, too numerous to list without shortening up the words, and big hunks of every edible animal known to chefs.

Creators of the Blackeyedturpumpkinducken are already trying to take it to the next level for 2006 with test runs of the Blackhamturpumpkinduckendoginbearinburgeregg.
