As God is My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fry

If you’ve been reading Keyboard Krumbs for a while, you know that I love videos and news stories of turkey frying gone bad. It’s always hilarious, as long as nobody gets hurt.

I shouldn’t have to tell you that big vats of hot oil and drinking on an empty stomach is never a good combination — but if you still don’t believe me, this will change your mind.

This may be the most epic turkey frying fire ever. Not because of the size of the flames or the overall level of chaos, but that the oil was already burning when they dropped in the dripping wet bird. That’s just plain amazing.

  1. Aww, I look forward to this every year and you never disappoint, Rob!

    If that fryer were any closer to the house, it would have been inside. As God is my witness, I will never fry a turkey and make my volunteer fire department work on Thanksgiving Day.

      1. It’s more than that–it’s a Thanksgiving tradition, like listening to “Alice’s Restaurant.”

        I just had to watch that again. I love the guy in the red hoodie with the two plywood sheets between the fryer and the house. What the hell? Was the plywood for kindling?! I wonder if he made it. Red-shirted guys never did well in “Star Trek.”

        1. My theory is that the wood is to shield the house from the flames. A few observations:

          a.That’s an imperfect solution
          b. People always think of these things when it’s too late.
          c. Nothing can ease the tragedy of losing your home — but eating some delicious fried turkey couldn’t hurt.
