Turducken -- Good or just a novelty?

I host Christmas dinner each year for 12+ people, and every year I like to do something different. In the recent past I've done the usual rib roasts, plus saurbraten, crown pork roast, roast goose, and grilled whole filets.

Recently on a regional board someone inquired about obtaining a turducken for thanksgiving and that got me thinking about buying one for Christmas, one that came fully assembled. I think that a couple of markets around here may carry them, but I also see ads for places like the CajunGrocer.com which was highly rated by the Wall Street Journal recently. I figured that by buying it all assembled (bird complete with stuffing) I'd be saving a lot of time both as far as prep and even carving was concerned.

But I was wondering what the experience any CHers might have had with turduckens. The one WSJ reported on had cornbread stuffing with a bit of pork in it apparently. If you've tried them, do you feel that they're good, or just a novelty?
