Turkey Ham

Now come on, turkey ham. Is it "ham" from a turkey, or turkey-like meat from a pig, or worse, some kind of grisly mutant beast? No one is telling us what "turkey ham" is and there's only a picture of a farm on the packet. No doubt, behind the dry-stone walls of this farm are machines extracting pure swine from the traditional holiday bird.

Ban this sick stunt!

You know I've always wondered this too! Its a bit like fish fingers... fish don't have fingers do they? So what on earth is it!?

Yeah, I wonder - does it taste like turkey or does it taste like ham? Or perhaps it tastes like something else entirely (e.g. chemical preservatives).

I prefer my meats to be single-animal.

I don't get today's gag with the shoes. Anyone?

The turkey ham is slightly terrifying, in the same way head cheese is. Although, turkey bacon is yummy, so maybe I'm just unfairly discriminating against this strange bird/pig hybred.

The eyes need glasses again, the shoes don't fit... Perhaps the hair is a bit less fabulous, as well?

But I'd say turkey ham is definitey a genetic chimera designed to take control of the planet.

Bassey: it isn't a gag, it's more of a clue, one of which you must collect several of this week! It's MYSTERY WEEK!

I would like to see a turkey-pig with fish fingers released back into the wild. Just don't ask me if it would go on the land, in the air or under the sea.

Turkey ham isn't sinister. It's just how ham comes out when it's made by and for turkeys. They also make a fine creme brulee.

Curious to find out what the shoes mean.
