The Tofurkey (called an "UnTurkey" in Europe) is the smallest member of the Cutibus family. They are only indigenous to specific areas of the world, where they are able to make their homes in low-floating clouds and there is an abundant supply of "hugs and kisses," their food of choice. There is a large concentration of Tofurkeys in Rhode Island, from the many Tofurkey farms there. They have been farmed and eaten for much of human history for their singular taste. Because of their strange anatomy, Tofurkeys require special slaughtering techniques which have been attacked as "to violent" by modern critics of the industry. Eating Tofurkey has been said to give the consumant a "buzz." The Tofurkey is a level critical endangered species.
edit Characteristics of a Tofurkey
Most tofurkeys spend their days playing with balloons, blowing bubbles, and singing in high pitched angelic voices. "They don't speak English or nothing but sometimes just listenin' to 'em makes me think about puppies and angels," said one tofurkey owner.
edit Tofurkey Farms
A tofurkey farm is not a typical farm. The tofurkey is extraordinarily cute and very inexpensive to keep because they're fed exclusively by hugs and smiles. "That's all they need," said one tofurkey farmer. "And they've got these huge expressive eyes that melt your heart." It's those expressive eyes that make "slaughter season" very hard for tofurkey owners.
edit Popular Misconseptions
Vegetarians around the planet were horrified to learn recently that the popular Thanksgiving dish for vegetarians called Tofurkey doesn't actually derive from the vegetarian bean curd known as Tofu but from the very small and extraordinarily cute endangered species.
The misunderstanding for vegetarians originated because of the similarities between the names Tofurkey and Tofu. One Tofurkey farmer said he never lied about where Tofurkey came from but he's glad to profit from the misunderstanding. "I think those wacky vegetarians just wanted to believe they were eating Tofu and I wasn't about to tell 'em no different."
edit Effects on the Tofurkey Industry
One Tofurkey farmer said that back when his "product" began doing brisk business he wondered why. "I know those little cute tofurkeys don't really taste so good so I wondered why so many people was eating 'em. But hey, who am I to complain?"
edit Vegan/Vegetarian Response to Tofurkey Misconception
Vegans and vegetarians have been shocked and horrified at the discovery of this Tofurkey farm. "Every time I ate Tofurkey on Thanksgiving I felt so principled and better than everyone else," said one vegetarian. "I'm going to miss that feeling."
