Gawker has culled the best of the Deep Fried Turkey Disaster videos from YouTube and, wow, they are spectacular. Way more amusing than the TG Day Parade.
Miraculously, no one gets hurt in these videos, and so they are quite comical. It could easily have gone the other way.
So without further ado:
Deep Fried Turkey Catching on Fire (Try not to focus on the small child running around in the background.)
Home Made Turkey Fryer (This woman at least knows her husband well enough to keep the family safe inside the house while the experiment is conducted.)
Deep Fried Turkey Incident (Um, what is this wooden structure they've decided to fry their turkey in?)
Christmas Eve Fryer Fire (on Wooden Deck - genius! At least someone had enough sense to call the fire department.)
How Not to Fry a Turkey (The fire extinguisher makes it extra exciting.)
Turkey Drop 2007 (Was their plan to burn down the entire neighborhood?)
Is deep fried turkey really that delicious? Is it worth all this trouble? I'm roasting mine in the oven, thank you very much.
