CR’s Christmas Turkey Tale

We often get nice presents and cards sent to us at this time of year at CR. But we have to admit we’ve never been sent a whopping great turkey before. Until last week that is, when agency Mustoes sent us an enormous, fresh-as-you-like Turkey (apparently to promote the tattooing services of their client, Into You). So what did we do? Well, mainly we looked at each other and asked “What the heck are we going to do with that?” Fortunately, Allanah, one of our classified sales execs took the bull by the horns, so to speak, and announced she’d take it home, cook it, and bring it in the next day for us all to eat. And that is exactly what she did. Here are the photos to prove it. Thank you Mustoes. And Allanah, we salute your Turkey-cooking skills. Bravo!

almost home
Just a little breather on the way home. That turkey weighs a ton

Turkey tattoo
Mustoes turkey had this rather unusual tattoo. Nope, never seen a turkey with this particular tattoo… It really is a tattoo by the way. It was done by Into You tattoo and piercing parlour in London.
