Turkeys and Thanksgiving in America.
Good, or at least voguish, eating these days is often shaped by constraints of the seasonal and the local, so let us consider, this season, the turkey, surely the most local of American birds. Meleagris gallopavo is the wild turkey native to North America, the distant parent of the forty-six million turkeys that will be eaten across the country next week.

All Turkeys are descendents of "VELOCIRAPTOR "dinosaurs '...like the ones in Jurassic Park??Except they really had Feathers!!
The Domestic variety are in no way indicative of the wild ones!..Wild one can Fly!..taking off from a standing spot..Like a Helicopter
Ben Franklin thought the Wild Turkey a more noble bird..Better than the thieving fish hawk ..the Bald Eagle... The Beautiful Turkey,Almost our National Emblem!
Weather Roasted,Baked,Smoked,Fried,..I ts not THANKSGIVING without one...Wild Turkeys eat better than the caged raised fat things,which are loaded with STUFF..
Enjoy this Great American Holiday,of thanking God,started by our foundling Fathers..
Do it before the ACLU declares it conflicting with Church and State...LOONS ARE WEIRD THAT WAY...HYPOCRITICAL,UN AMERICAN,BASTARDS!The Turkeys ASS is too good for these Creeps!

Buy a heritage turkey this Thanksgiving and boycott the factory farmed genetically manipulated white feathered bird that masquerades as a "turkey".
