I was wandering through the grocery store the other night, and I finally saw it. I’ve heard tales, read jokes, and even personally considered it, but never before had I seen it in real life: A Tofurky feast (yes, the “feast” left out the ‘e’ between the ‘k’ and the ‘y’. I included it in my comic so as to not grossly confuse the two). The box claims the following:
Have a bird-free feast, but with all the flavor and trimmings you’ve always enjoyed. Our feast contains: One Tofurky® Roast (made with organic non-genetically engineered soybeans), Eight Cranberry Apple Potato Dumplings, Tofurky® ‘Giblet’ & Mushroom Gravy, Wild Rice, Whole Wheat Bread Crumb Stuffing, Tofurky® Jurky Wishstix. Each feast is 100% vegan, cooks in about 40 minutes, serves four and tastes fabulous!
Now, I have to admit, the dumplings look pretty awesome, and the rice and stuffing sound pretty decent. I’m somewhat leery of the ‘giblet’ gravy, and I have absolutely no idea what “Tofurky® Jurky Wishstix” are, nor do I really have a strong desire to find out. And I’m still split as to whether or not I’d really want to eat the Tofurky to begin with.
So I had turkey with my family. And enjoyed it. Sorry, Jane.
P.S. I’m pretty proud of my Scrappy-as-Fat-Homer drawing. Came out pretty decently, I thought.
