Where do Turkeys get Goosebumps Seeing Ducks and Chickens?

In Maurice, Vermilion Parish, Louisiana – as Thanksgiving approaches –
Turduckens (a turkey stuffed with a deboned duck stuffed with a deboned chicken)
…are churned out in vast quantities..

 This poultry trio tradition came into existence

Where Do People Turn Blue for Want of Water?

Stamped dye runs and rubs off.

Tuareg men in Mali exhibit a blue complexion.

With Gatfol you will never see red…
