Dreams of Bacon-Wrapped Gators Stuffed With Turduckens

A Portland chef has a dream of wrapping a full-sized alligator with bacon and stuffing a turducken in its mouth.

Ever since mankind gazed toward the heavens and thought "hey, let's stuff two random meats together" there has been talk of getting a gator involved. After all, alligators are totally awesome and have been known to randomly sneak into South Florida homes for some good-natured tomfoolery. One man recently tried to channel the Epic Meal Time guys with a holy grail of crazy mash-ups.

A man in Portland named Marc Anthony tried to raise five grand to bring his modest  candied-bacon-wrapped gator pork turducken  dish to the masses. As the name suggested, it would involve a full-sized gator wrapped in candied-bacon. Then it would have a giant turducken stuffed inside its mouth. Meat on meat on meat on meat on meat.

Unfortunately, the Kickstarter raised only $14 dollars, so this dream of five animals meeting on a dinner plate will not be realized.
