It’s not weird to me that someone came up with the idea of stuffing bread up a turkey’s cloaca before cooking it. Okay, well it is. But what’s WEIRDER is that the trend CAUGHT ON. People saw that happen, saw the person eating it, TRIED IT THEMSELVES, and said ‘You know what? This should happen every year!’ Without going over in their heads “Uh, did that guy just stuff bread up a bird’s butt and eat it?”
I really want to do a series in N&P called “And The Rest is History” talking about how weird stuff from the past came to be, or SHOULD HAVE come to be, if the world had a sense of humor.
