Have A Mercator Projection Thanksgiving

My wife was reading one of her cooking magazines last night.

"Here's an article about spatchcocking. We should try it this Thanksgiving."

It sounded like it could've been either a finish carpentry trick or a technique used in making a triple X movie.

"Why wait until Thanksgiving? I'm willing to try anything once. Let's go to bed."

Spatchcocking is butterflying a chicken or turkey by cutting out the back bone and laying the bird flat on the cooking surface in the oven or on the grill. Spatchcocking foul also reduces the cooking time to seventy minutes for a twelve pound turkey.

Looking at the picture it kind of reminded me of a Mercator Projection of the Earth
