Turducken

noun; blending and clipping
A holiday food consisting of a chicken stuffed inside a duck, and then stuffed inside a turkey. Turducken is a blending and clipping on the words turkey, duck, and chicken. It refers to a food dish consisting of a chicken stuffed inside a duck, which is then stuffed inside a turkey. The word was coined to easily describe this food, and it made sense to simply combine the three main ingredients of it. The words are also conducive to being mixed, as the “ck” is shared by both the words duck and chicken, making the blending of the word easier. This food is sometimes also known as a “chuckey”, which also takes advantage of shared letters, in this case the k in duck and turkey. The other form is preferred however, most likely because the parts of the word resemble the actual physical arrangement of the dish.
