I'm sure there are deep phsychological issues surrounding their behavior, but we (women in the South) tend to handle things in a different manner. Don't get me wrong; when treated incorrectly, we will set your car on fire; but give us respect and love and you've never been treated so well in all your life! Southern boys so love their mamas ... and women down here tend to base husband skills on how well a man treats his Mother.

    While that is not iron clad, there be in that much truth.

    Silly wabbit.
    Put the small cameras inside the big cameras, the big cameras inside the bigger cameras and so on. You can fit a couple hundred Minoxes inside an 11x14.

    I've got a Century studio camera with a 5 foot bellows extension and a 10 by 12 film aperture.

    In extremis I can actually hide myself in ther camera

    Say you found it at a Estate sale for a deal, on the way from work, and couldn't pass it up.

    It's a photo turducken! (chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey - a uniquely American monstrosity for those not aware of the phenomenon).

    I think people were doing that before America as you know it existed!

    from the font of all knowledge, Wikipedia:
    In his 1807 Almanach des Gourmands, gastronomist Grimod de La Reynière presents his rôti sans pareil ("incomparable roast")—a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan bunting and a garden warbler—although he states that, since similar roasts were produced by ancient Romans, the rôti sans pareil was not entirely novel.

    Steve- you may be correct as to the origin of the concept. The Turducken name, though, I'm fairly sure, is a late-20th century Yankee thing. No matter the origin, it's still an abomination. Kinda reminds me of one of the question cards from the Cards Against Humanity game:

    "It is rumored that Vladimir Putin likes to eat _______ stuffed with _______". I've seen answers played including "The Pope" stuffed with "Altar boys", "Michael Jackson" stuffed with "the hopes and dreams of little children". Yes, it's a particularly evil game for sick and twisted minds.
