Halloween Oreos and a Crazy Turkey

Look at this crazy turkey.  He sings "Hot, Hot, Hot!" and neck dances in his hot tub.

I spotted it today when I was grocery shopping and I decided right there on the spot, that Mattie Cake MUST have it.  For a little treat, I included a little video performance at the end of this post for you to see.

And look at what else I found.

Are these wild or what? Who can resist an Oreo? 

I actually have a funny story about Oreos, and it has to do with Mattie Cake's husband, Daddy Long Legs.  One day he decided that he was putting on some weight and Mattie Cake and I said "Whatever! What've  you been smokin'?"

He's about seven feet tall and when you stand next to him you feel like you're in a redwood forest. His shadow can darken a room. He could be a stork for Halloween, easy.

So, I'm just sayin' this because he doesn't even know about such things as putting on weight because he's so tall. Where would it even go that he could notice? Really.

So anyway, he cut back on his seven Oreos before bedtime and that did the trick. Can you believe that mess?!!!!

That's neither here nor there though, it's just that I can't look at an Oreo anymore without thinking about his seven Oreos before bedtime. I can't even say that, seven Oreos before bedtime, without a snotty voice. I'm so bitter.

I don't hold it against him personally though, because he's a super nice guy. And he puts up with my nickname for him, and is never mean to me. Although he may be changing his mind now.

Back to where I was going, because really, I did have a point here.

I was going to make the Panda cupcakes in my Hello, Cupcake! book with these Oreos, except they were going to be orange and black instead of white and black, on account of Halloween. But once I got started I decided that it was so not worth all that work.

These turned out so much better.

And I'm sure you know what I did, right?

We booed Mattie Cake and we left them on her doorstep with that Crazy Turkey. I don't even know if she got them though, because we hightailed it out of there and she never called me to scold me.

And I was expecting it.

Just so you know, Mattie Cake, we broke speed limit laws racing home to catch your phone call. I was going to answer the phone and say "Whew, I was just working out so that's why I'm a little breathless. And wheezing a little bit. Really."

Happy Halloween!
