My Favorite Turkey

This week’s assignment from the League: Let’s talk turkey

I don’t know if anyone is around this week since it’s Thanksgiving and all, but if you are, let’s have a little fun with this week’s assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers
What a turkey! 
REMEMBER!: The League is always open to new members! Got a blog? Write a post in response to the weekly challenge, and you’ll be included. It’s that easy!
Before I get started I just have to say Turkey Kramer is SO DANG CREEPY! Just look at him! Gives me the jibblies!
Now, let's get to talking about my favorite turkey, the mischievous, the lovable, Mr. Bean! (The dude with the turkey on his head reminded me of the Mr. Bean Christmas turkey scene) 

As I've said before, I'm a big fan of British comedy and Mr. Bean is the king of British comedy! I have PBS to thank for discovering many a great British show; such as Dr. Who, Keeping Up Appearances, The Black Adder, and of course, Mr. Bean. I even tried dressing up as Mr. Bean for Halloween one year. No one knew who I was supposed to be. I get that a lot with my Halloween costume choices.

That's me on the far left as Mr. Bean for Halloween.

A gift from my wife. She totally gets me!

But let's get serious. Where did this Mr. Bean character come from? Watch and listen as Rowan Atkinson shares the interesting, not so funny story of Mr. Bean's creation. Watch in childlike wonder as David Bowie analyses Mr. Bean! Also, find out whether or not Mr. Bean is really an extraterrestrial being.

Now wasn't that just delightful? Don't bugger off just yet, first check out these other extraordinary League members!

    1. He's such a character! Every episode f Mr. Bean is hilarious and the Christmas episode is a must watch every year in our household.

  2. I love that episode of Mr. Bean. Absolute gold. I'm glad to hear someone else appreciate British humor. Black Adder the Third is my favorite. Also love IT Crowd and The Mighty Boosh. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Yeah, British comedy and even drama is great. I was skeptical at fist, but now my wife got me into Downton Abbey. We're also patiently waiting for the next season of Sherlock to grace American shores. It really is a shame how many Americans haven't even heard of The IT Crowd. Speaking of The IT Crowd, these a great show I discovered recently called Gadget Man starring Richard Ayoade (Moss).

      I haven't seen Mighty Boosh, I'll have to check that one out.

  3. I've never been a fan of British comedy... but Mr. Bean I get. I can laugh at Bean. Monty Python... meh, it's decent. But Mr. Bean is just so accessible to people of all senses of humor. You gotta love him.

    1. Yeah, British comedy isn't everyone's cup of tea, but Mr. Bean is pretty unique. I've never seen anything else like it and the Bean hardly ever speaks a word!
