    Tell me I am nuts. Our President pardoned a broad breasted white turkey today. So it can crush itself in another two months?? [​IMG] Education is key.

    Please, DO NOT turn this into a political debate. It is more about peoples lack of knowledge.

    It looked about the size of a chicken, too.

    Quote:LOL! I can't figure that out either because my BBW is about 40 lbs. HUGE bird. Ken can;t part with him though. Stinker.

    I was telling this to my mom and Jay Leno came on and was talking about it and said they gave it heath care for life, and my mom responded he's going to need it [​IMG] I agree though learn about your turkey before you pardon it.

    You're losing me here- I heard the speech, he pardoned the turkey and made a joke about it not being eaten?
