Unexpectedly Intriguing!
November 28, 2008

King County Washington residents dispose of food waste. Alas, Turkeymania 2008 is coming to an end. In fact, all that's left now are the leftovers, which raises an interesting question.

Can you make money from them?

Being too stuffed ourselves to want to put much effort into finding out, we instead filtered through this list of highly questionable ideas for things you can do with Thanksgiving leftovers to filter out just the ones that had some sort of money-making or money-saving potential. Just remember the key words operating here are "highly questionable...."

  • Flatten stuffing with rolling pin and bake until hard. Sell to local lumber store as press/compound board.

  • Liquefy leftovers according to colors. Sell as organic finger paints.

  • Mix whatever doesn’t sell and repackage as vitamin-rich energy juice.

  • Glue olives, celery sticks, etc. to create clever and whimsical figurines. Sell at local craft fairs as Christmas ornaments.

  • Estimate dollar value of leftovers and send to IRS as “payment-in-kind” like the fishermen do.

  • Place into cylindrical containers and sell to the Army as biological weapons.

  • Mix with water to make a broth. Serve as “Potluck Surprise” at local church dinner.

  • Stitch turkey skins together, stuff with sweet potatoes, sell as organically-created hackysacks.

Is it just us, or are you also making the connection that a lot of so-called "organic" products are really just unattractive and potentially inedible leftover waste that has been repackaged and heavily marketed to ignorant consumers as being either healthy, good for the environment or art?
