Here’s What I’m NOT Making For Christmas Dinner: A Cthurkey

By  | 

I’m sort of dreading posting this because I know as soon as my co-worker Julia Sonenshein sees this she is either going to duplicate it or else shame me for being squeamish about the whole thing. I’m a fan of interesting cuisine and I totally appreciate the Cthulhu vibe this thing has going on here but it just seems like too much of everything. Like when Taco Bell releases a new taco but it’s actually a taco stuffed in a burrito stuffed in a chimichanga and covered with a cheesy gordito sauce and deep fried and placed in a Doritos shell.

The Cthuken, posted on Twitter, is the creation of Rusty Eulberg who works as a database administrator in Lubbock, Texas. From Gothamist:

According to Eulberg, he and wife Jennifer Robledo “wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours. Jenny is a big fan of Cthulhu so we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. The next year I made a Cthicken; the same thing using squid instead of octopus and a chicken.”

Another super creepy aspect of this Christmas feast is that they serve it on an old Nazi platter emblazoned with a swastika. Happy holidays everybody!

This sort of makes my plan of serving fondue for Christmas seem pretty dull in comparison. And basically this is just a big old excuse for me to ask you guys what you plan on serving. Because food!

So let’s discuss that while we enjoy this lovely carol.
