Turkey-shaped Jell-O® Mold: 2008 Competition

Bubby's Matzoh Turkey: In this stunning mis-en-matzoh-ball-soup, we are brought back to the original site of sustenance: the womb. Floating, trussed, lulled in a warm bath of chicken broth, we experience the original state of undifferentiated oneness, of satiety.

Which Came First?: The hard-boiled-eggs turkey conflates progenitor and present, history and hard-boiled. We are comprised of that from whence we came. Ab ovo.

The Great Meta Turkey!!!: No further commentary necessary.
Winner, Best Conceptual Turkey
By Elio B. & Marina B.

Chewing Gum Turkey: This viscerally revolting chewing-gum turkey is acephalic, yet it models, on second look, a brain. The viewer's mind and gag-reflex battle for comprehension: Is our left temporal lobe truly grape-Bubble-Yum-flavored? What of the prevelance of Apple-flavored chicklets in the frontal lobes? The mind reels.
Winner, Best-Left-Untouched
By Adam & Jess & Multiple Friends

Kimchi Turkey
Winner, Most Elegant Turkey
By Suyeon K.

Corn Bread with Chicken Ragout: In this disturbing, almost incestuous doubling -- a turkey comprised of chicken form and chicken feed -- the insides also redouble to the outside, as the viscera are recklessly exposed.
Winner, Best Juxtaposition
By David B.

Caramel Popped-Corny: Cindy's carapace-enclosed Caramel Popped-Corny is a character that invites -- yet crisply resists -- dissection. In an abreactive move characteristic of late 20th-century Freudian discourse, Sherman deftly brings us back to the fairgrounds of youth.
Winner, Toughest Bird
