Isn’t Turketarian like the best word ever? Turketarian. Why isn’t this in the dictionary already? I think it’s pretty obvious what it means, right? If you can’t figure it out, look at the photo above, say it out loud “turk-e-tar-ian” and then nod your head and say “ahh.” One who likes turkey. Like a lot a lot of turkey.

‘Turketarian’ or ‘Meatatarian’? It’s All in the ‘Framily’
Advertising
By STUART ELLIOTT APRIL 15, 2014
(...)
Campaigns featuring coined and made-up words are increasingly prevalent on television, in print, online and in social media. Some even make imaginary words their foundations, among them “framily,” a compression of “friends” and “family,” from Sprint, and “turketarian,” a mash-up of “turkey” and “vegetarian,” from Butterball.
