  • Pardoned Turkeys

    So the president is going to pardon turkeys today or tomorrow (don't remember which). On the radio, they said the turkeys would then go to Disney World. If that wasn't an error, we are not getting the turkeys this year.

    That is correct, the original deal was for 5 years, 2 at Disneyland, then 3 at Walt Disney World. Tim O'Day, who used to work for Disneyland in marketing made the arrangements, and got them to Disneyland first (the 50th helped), but Jay Rasulo wanted to make it "nationwide" event, and wanted to promote Orlando also.

      Any animal lovers here? How will the turkeys likely do in the Disney World heat and humidity? Is WDW an appropriate turkey climate?

        I saw the "Pardon" live on T.V. and he did say the turkeys were heading to WDW.

        Not sure who he was referring toooo...

          I was thinking this yesterday when I saw Kevin posted that they would go to WDW. Its way too humid and hot there for those poor guys, I hope they get some really good AC.

            According to the wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkeys) seems like turkeys are pretty adaptable and will thrive in both DL and WDW. Though hopefully it won't be added to EPCOT as an attempt to pass off a new country in the WS.

            Sidenote - This article has a lot of great turkey related lingo like wattle and snood (Been injured in a car accident? Contact the law office of Wattle and Snood, your personal injury attorneys).

                    With the nationwide mass slaughter of Turkeys in preparation for the millions of Thanksgiving feasts planned for the day after tomorrow; I find it ironic, and kinda touching, that you two would be worried about the climate.

                      I was corcerned about the climate for my turkey too. 3 hours at 350 degrees doesn't sound to comfy.

                        Yes, but it's a dry heat!

                          Actually it is a very moist heat. Therefore, while the turkeys are cooking in the 105 degree Florida heat, they will remain nice and moist!

                            Q. Are turkeys really stupid?
                            A. The best way I can answer this is to say that turkeys have a primitive brain with limited capacity to learn new things. they pretty much get along on their temperament and their instincts. They have adapted well to domestication and are less nervous and flighty than previous generations. Also, their natural sense of curiosity has increased and helps them find food, water, and shelter.

                            Q. Will a turkey look up when it rains and drown?
                            A. Believe it or not, otherwise intelligent people actually believe this to be true. We raise thousands of turkeys outside, and have never lost one to drowning in the rain.

                            Q. Are turkeys mean?
                            A. As a male turkey gets older he gets very aggressive and fights a lot. As they have patterned on humans, and believe us to be one of them, they will try to pick a fight with you.

                                    From Keith Olbermann on "Countdown" this evening in the tease:

                                    "It's Carnac time.

                                    "'President Bush, May and Flower [The names of the "pardoned" turkeys going to Disney World].'

                                    (As Ed McMahon) "'President Bush, May and Flower.'

                                    (Rips open envelope; blows into it to get the question)"'Name three creatures who will soon be getting a pardon.'"
                                    And this on the wrong day that George W. Bush picked to give up telling the truth.

                                        The President's press secretary revealed today that he was told to lie to the American public by the President, himself.

                                        Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby, was convicted of perjury for the same lie.

                                        The President commuted the sentence of Libby.

                                        Now, he is "pardoning" turkeys on the same day that his former press secretary is revealing this information? Yikes!

                                        I don't think today's publicity was, ultimately, very good for Disney. Associating with Bush and Cheney is a double-edged sword that seems to do more harm to the person, or company, using it.
