As we prepare for Thanksgiving on Thursday, and as we recall our blessings and thank God for each and every one, let us also remember the humble turkey and the various disasters that result when that proud bird is not treated with the care that it deserves, dead or alive.    Oldtimers like myself will recognize the above video as part of the famous “Turkey Drop” episode from WKRP, a sitcom from the Seventies.

  1. ……….Oldtimers like myself……….

    Aw come on Don, you’re just a spring turk…….. I mean chicken. 🙂
