You Want Me To Do WHAT With The Turkey's Butt?!

As I was taking the direwolves on their nightly hunt I began to notice that many of the trees' leaves are already yellowing - a sure sign that autumn is upon us. In fact when I checked the date, I realized that in only three short weeks we would be gathering with family and feeding on the carcass of a turkey for the annual Thanksgiving Feast. After the direwolves had eaten their fill of rabbit and squirrel I returned to the Guild Hall, went to the crafting chamber and began constructing a card in preparation for the celebration of the turkey corpse.
I started by stamping out Thursday by The Greeting Farm and colouring her with Prismacolors in a "fall" palette. The turkey I cut from Simply Charmed. The sassy sentiment came from the Dylusions "Christmas Words" set. Thursday just looks like she has so much attitude, I thought the sentiment seemed like something she'd say. This earned me +59 sarcastic exp points, which really amounts to nothing as my level is maxed out in that attribute. {lol} I tied some baker's twine through two huge, ugly, clear buttons I had kicking around in my button bin. Man it felt nice to use those up. 
Inside of the card. Nice and simple.

I offer this sarcastic creation to the following challenges:
The Perfect Sentiment Challenge #49: Fall & Baker's Twine
The Greeting Farm Challenge: Jumping in the Leaves - RETRO Style
Simply Create Too Challenge #22: Anything Goes
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge #40: Gone Gingham
Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutation Challenge #11: Autumn

The Guardian of Glitter related a humorous anecdote of last Thanksgiving Feast when her lady sister did not wish to violate the turkey by putting the stuffing through its anus and wanted to stuff it through the neck. Unfortunately Nikki's kin didn't know the head from the ass and ended up stuffing it up the butt anyways. Oh Lady Pamela.
