Click here to watch this clip.

Why would anyone construct a turkey out of turkey, bacon, and several other types of meat that has 79,000 calories and takes days to make? Watch and find out! Then ask yourself the following question, "Would it have been easier to just cook a turkey?" The answer is yes! Apparently these guys do not understand the concept of opportunity cost and diminishing marginal utility.  Is it worth it to take the time an effort to create a meal that is ultimately worse for your health?
