I guess turkeys are all over the place right now! There’s even a video of some turkeys prancing around. This amuses me to no end.
I wish I had my camera when I saw those turkeys crossing Washington Street. Turkeys are really funny. And tasty, too! I could enjoy a turkey sandwich right now.
At least those turkeys didn’t really do much damage… Check out that article, about how a turkey smashed a window in Michigan!
And here’s some TURKEY TRIVIA, compiled from various places on the ‘net:
-Turkeys originated in North and Central America. Evidence shows that turkeys have been around for over 10 million years!
-Turkeys were considered a sacrificial bird in Mexico. Montezuma received 365000 turkeys a year from his subjects.
-Benjamin Franklin was unhappy with the choice of the bald eagle as the national symbo, because he wanted it to be the turkey! He said the turkey is a more respectable bird and a true original native of America.
-Wild turkeys can fly for short distances at up to 55 MPH. Domesticated turkeys cannot fly.
-The fleshy growth from the base of the beak, which is very long on male turkeys and hangs down over the beak, is called the snood.Filed under Humor, Local News, turkeys | Comments (8)
