Frozen Turkey

  Grey Goo 23:53 09 Nov 08

I was shopping at Sainsbury's today and had a look at the frozen turkeys. Not very Bootiful Bernard Matthews 5Kg self basting at £30. They can poke them in the same place as the "Turkey Twizzlers" as far as I am concerned.

turkey are always expensive outside the christmas season... Give it another couple of weeks and the price will start to drop..

Howabouts "Winter Festival" ?

How about we can actually call it Christmas and the FE can learn to come to terms with the fact that the word exists outside of December?

We're having a rib of beef and goose this Wintermas... I hear that the Turkeys have voted to give it a miss this year;)

Might get a Norfolk Black for flavour, but for the rest only really useful as a basis - pies, curry, sarnies, etc.

The FE's "ban" is honoured more in the breach than the observance.

As lotvic says, it started early and has made many appearances since, even more if you include euphemisms such as Winterfest or Wintermas, which defeat the whole object of his bit of fun anyway.

Of course, if the FE's little idiosyncrasies are really upsetting, you could always try somewhere else!
