Welcome to Friday, and Happy Thanksgiving, American friends.

Here are your Friday links.

» The TurDunkin’

Just in time for the holidays!
“The turDunkin’ is a turkey brined in Dunkin’ Donuts coolattas, stuffed with munchkins and served with coffee gravy and mashed hash browns. The turDunkin’ should not be confused with the hot meaty mess that is a turducken, which is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken.”

“Mapnificent shows you the area you can reach with public transport from any point in a given time. It is available for major cities in the US and world wide.”

A really good idea, and surprisingly accurate.

Really well done. And the new CD is quite good as well.
