Holding a door open? Never would have dreamed it! I thought maybe telling him he's a pain in the azz, his jokes aren't funny, he's awful in bed , a horrible kisser, ugly, stupid (not smart ~ not one sign of intelligence), boring, smothering, untrusting, crazy, parent dependent, and a loser. I'm sure there are more but really they wasted time and money on that study.

And worse...

His father takes one look at the feather boa and rolls his eyes.

Then he says "Chicken feathers?!? Son, I am disappoint. I raised you to be a patriotic American so I expect no less than an Bald Eagle feather boa!"

Wouldn't turkey feathers be more patriotic over there, or is that just for the 4 weeks before thanksgiving & Christmas?

Have a nice day: Ag

Well, Ben Franklin was a supporter of the turkey as the national bird.

But he scandalous horny dog.

He might have taken inspiration of the "gobble, gobble, gobble" turkey call when he was ambassador to France and saw the courtesan ladies there.
