According to PETA, 45 million of our tasty foul feathered friends will find themselves naked and headless in our ovens, broilers, and deep fryers this year. They also claim that these birds to fat to fly, too short to run and which cannot swim have as many distinct personalities as dogs and cats! So when you're done stuffing your face and sleeping off the tryptophan, maybe you'll consider buying one as a pet for little Johnny or Susie instead of that puppy or kitten they wanted for Christmas. And hell, if having a pet turkey doesn't turn out to be the feathery fun you thought it might... You can always eat him!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my People Eating Tasty Animals!
