Turkey Bomb

I live in the state of Missouri, which happens to rank 9th in the country in Thanksgiving Day fires. Just across the river, Illinois ranks #2.

The danger: deep frying turkeys.

It's a true recipe for disaster. First, you take your All-American partially thawed turkey. Then you have your regular outdoor deep fryer filled to the top with hot oil. Thirdly, you add a nimrod that drops the frozen turkey into the overflowing deep fryer. Finally, make sure you do all of this on a wooden deck.

Result: a major insurance claim.

Don't be like this guy in the video below.
Because you can't give thanks if you are dead.
