Duck face? No, the newest selfie trend is an even bigger example of fowl play.

Instagrammers on both coasts are turning turkey leg photos—a shot of yourself with one of the whopper turkey drumsticks sold at Disneyland and Disney World—into the latest must-have shot on social media. But Katy Perry could have told you that months ago! (Yup, that’s her in the cowboy hat.)

The pop star is also proof that you don’t need to get to the happiest place on earth to get in on the action—the photo was taken at Canada’s Calgary Stampede, a 10-day rodeo festival.

In fact, we found plenty of stars who’ve been caught on camera doing the turkey:

Demi Lovato even paired mouse ears with her 1½-pound turkey drumstick, a moment captured by a photographer at Disneyland.

After winning big a few years ago for Victorious at the Latin American Kids Choice Awards in Buenos Aires, Victoria Justice celebrated by getting her bird on at a local fair.

Ron Swanson Turkey Leg

The carnivorously inclined Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) may be a fictional character on Parks and Recreation, but he knows how to ham up a drumstick shot. “Is that bacon on your turkey leg?” Aziz Ansari’s character Tom asks Ron in one episode. His classic reply: “They call it a Swanson.”

After the Patriots walloped the Jets the week before Thanksgiving, the winners—including Tom Brady—chowed down at a post-game buffet that included plenty of turkey legs. Brady looks like he’s tearing into the meat here, but many fans at home sympathized with him on Twitter for looking awkward on-screen eyeing the buffet. As one wrote, “Tom Brady’s just standing there like what the hell do I do with this turkey leg?”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
