The dinosaur on your table



In the USA, today is Thanksgiving, a holiday calling for us to celebrate all of the blessings of being American by ratcheting up our everyday gluttony to extremes. What better way to prove our worth than to eat the avian theropod Meleagris gallopavo?

For a fun project, turn the carcass of your turkey into a paleontology lesson. Matt Wedel tells you how. He also has one of the best airport security stories I've heard. "Literally the bone of a cow." Hilarious.

PS. I would have turned the axe into a Quidditch broom if I wasn't so flippin' hungry right now.

  1. And isn't this what Thanksgiving is really about?
