Dave Cooks the Turkey

Hapless Dave is at it again, promising his beloved wife Morley that he will take care of the Christmas turkey while she takes the kids to work at the food bank. Dave fails to realize quite what's involved, and the result is a Homeresque struggle to beat all the odds and somehow get an unappetizing, frozen, and slightly scarred bird home and roasted in time for Christmas di Hapless Dave is at it again, promising his beloved wife Morley that he will take care of the Christmas turkey while she takes the kids to work at the food bank.

    Oh so funny - if you love listening to Stuart on CBC and have gotten to know Dave and Morley, this is a great pick for Christmas - read it out loud to the family, or take turns reading. I read it this month to get into the spirit, and it made me laugh out loud.

    Grabbed this off my Library's Holiday Reading shelf as a quick book to read and help me reach my 2018 Book Reading goal, even my librarian mentioned how its a good book. I was amused and delightedly entranced into how Dave goes about to make sure this turkey gets successfully cooked and served for his Family's Christmas dinner.

    It was funny briefly, but it starts with a note from McLean about the number of requests he used to get to tell the story - so he self-hyped a cheque the story couldn't cash. Maybe better in an audio book or if I were a part of a different demographic?

    McLean is hilarious as usual as you go through a crazy whirlwind journey of Dave cooking a Turkey in time for Christmas. Definitely worth a yearly read :)

    I would have given this 5/5 except there is nothing like hearing Stuart McLean telling the story himself at a Christmas concert. I love this story and love hearing it every year.

    Stuart McLean is a Canadian treasure and this is, arguably, his best short story. We read it aloud every Christmas.

    This is just the one story but it’s a good one. Reading this story always makes me laugh.

    After a horrible couple of days, thank you Stuart - I needed Dave and his turkey to bring some sunshine into my day even if it was fleeting

    A hilarious short tale (only 22 pages) of what happens when a husband volunteers to lessen his wife's burden one Christmas, by cooking the turkey. A Canadian classic and a must read every Christmas!

    I first read this story years ago in one of the Vinyl Cafe books, and again more recently in Chapters before purchasing it for a family member. Hysterical every time.

    Good heavens, the only story that compares with this is Winfield's cooking the turkey in the oven on "clean". So funny.
