Why do Americans eat turkey at Thanksgiving?
« on: 24/11/2009 21:14:39 »
I see Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday this year. I'm pretty sure it was a Thursday last year too. Hmmmm?

Anyway, I'll tell you why we eat turkeys. Because there's so blinking many of them, that's why! Around here, if we were not chomping our way through them on a regular basis, we would be up to our keesters in turkey poop. It's bad enough as it is, let me tell you.

Cheeky blighters! They copulate right in the middle of the road too. You have to drive round them. Once they get started, they won't stop for anything - ok, slight exaggeration - they will actually quit if you run over them.

It's them or us I tell you, and I think they might be winning.
