          Is it just me, or is this really weird? 4 hours of two turkeys, sitting around? They don't do anything!

          Now, if they took that webcam and put it up so it overlooks the hub, I could sit for hours and people watch. :ap::geek::ap:

            Sure they do--watch how they first go to their tails before preening their feathers (can you tell me why?), how they react to various environmental sounds, and how they keep their faces warm while taking a nap. I've never paid much attention to turkeys before, but they sure act a lot like chickens (although most chickens are far more active).

            Well, Homo sapiens is undeniably fascinating to watch because it seems that each and every specimen is mentally whacked in some way or other. Whenever I get tired of that, though, at least there are turkeys to provide some sanity for contrast.

              Except they've done this a ton of times before, so how is it part of the new promotion? ah, no one can make the old seem novel like Disney can.

              The trip from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles will mark the fourth consecutive year that the National Thanksgiving Turkey has celebrated his pardon at a Disney Resort.
              I thought they didn't do it last year?

                I want to know how they got the turkey to stand still for the parade?! I will be the first to admit I know nothing about turkeys, but it seems that that kind of activity and noise level might just make the bird kind of nervous.

                    twobluestripes: Last year, the turkeys were sent to Walt Disney World.
                    bayougirl89: I interviewed the National Turkey Chaairman and he emphasized how well trained the birds were to stay calm. Someone asked if they used sedatives and he made it really clear that they did not, which I thought was pretty funny because at first I was convinced they were. : )
                    Here's my story over at the Register's Disney blog about the Turkey pardoning.
