Boing Boing pal Danielle Spencer bought a turkey-shaped (okay, actually, cornish-game-hen-iform) gelatin mold, then whipped up this uncannily realistic faux Thanksgiving spread. Link to project details, including where to buy molds shaped like human body parts. She used Jell-o and condensed milk for her gelatinous bird, but those of vegan persuasion could produce similar results with something like agar-agar (non-animal-based jelling agent) and soymilk (to create the cloudy, opaque look that fools the eye).
Why? Because you can!
