Tangredi's Italian Kitchen

On the "Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving" episode of Gilmore Girls - one of my wife's favorite shows - Sookie's husband sets about destroying her favorite day of the year by deep-frying the turkey in the front yard for all the world to see. By the end of the day, the hosts and their guests had become sufficiently soused that they started deep-frying all sorts of items - hats, gloves, shoes, etc. What the writers of that episode didn't realize, I'm quite sure, is that a lot of folks on this side of the Mason Dixon line were watching and thinking, 'That actually sounds pretty good.'
