Crazy person invents Christmas dinner in a can, and it might even be real

Lazy British people, rejoice! If you plan on spending your entire Christmas sedentary in front of your brand-new Xbox One or PS4, you're in luck -- gaming retailer GAME (surely the brother of normal retailer STORE) has come up with a way to pack an entire day of holiday meals into one convenient can (developed by artist Chris Godfrey). It's called the Christmas Tinner, and it's a hungry archaeologist's dream come true.

This stratified cylinder contains a whopping nine layers of Yuletide treats, but with a British spin that's kinda weird and alluring at the same time (mmmm... "bread sauce"). The different stratums are, in order:

  1. Scrambled eggs and bacon
  2. Mince pies
  3. Turkey and potatoes
  4. Gravy
  5. Bread sauce
  6. Cranberry sauce
  7. Brussels sprouts with stuffing, or broccoli with stuffing
  8. Roast carrots and parsnips
  9. Christmas pudding


For the uninitiated, "Christmas pudding" is a British holiday... uh, delicacy(?) that's comprised of dried fruit, eggs, suet, and molasses, and "bread sauce" is a sauce with bread in it.

This product may or may not be real (fingers crossed one way or the other), but if the smiles on these two gamers' faces are any indication, it's sure to be one of the sweetest gifts of the holiday season. Game on, friends.
