Not only that, but Terry has an ArtBeck Meat Baster, too. Look at how she's holding it - like a weapon! There's "nothing like it," indeed. And it is made of capitalized PYREX. Bill may also be made of PYREX. We just don't know.
Having said all that, basters are really helpful when you are making gravy - there was a year or two in between us losing our ancient one, and buying another. Don't ask. The only reason I can think of for our baster procrastination is that we only have turkey once a year (we get takeout on Canadian Thanksgiving). Anyway, it was such a drag trying to make non-greasy gravy without one of these things. Also basting the turkey with a spoon was no picnic either.
But I still don't know why the ArtBeck baster top is as big as Bill's head. I think Terry may know. But I wouldn't want to ask her, not with her holding a panful of piping hot turkey legs.
Title from the comic strip/radio serial/50s TV show Terry and the Pirates, see here; also a 1940 movie, over here.
