What happens in Holidayland when the loopier wizards get their hands on the leftovers?

Previous Holiday Interludes

Gobbler Golem

I don't know if the day after Thanksgiving sandwich is a thing across the US or just here in the Northeast but it's probably my favorite part of the holiday. A monstrous layering of basically everything left over from the day before (or even just earlier in the day) into a sandwich that is greater than the sum of its parts. Unfortunately some foolish or insane wizard thought to make a golem using the same philosophy, and in Holidayland there are a LOT of diverse leftovers to built with.

Primary in a Gobbler golem are bones of crusty bread, muscles of roast beast, and blood of gravy or cranberry sauce. Carrots, peas, green bean casserole, and even squash are also often incorporated into the shambling mass of leftovers.
