The first pilgrim explains, 'I usually miss the first time I shoot. By
taking two I can shoot again.'
The second pilgrim thinks for a while and then says, 'Why not just take
the second one, and only shoot once?'

Two Turkeys Meet
Beware the Turkey?
To borrow a line from WC Fields: 'Never work with children, animals, or
The above funny Thanksgiving picture marked the 61st anniversary of the National Thanksgiving
Turkey presentation. Live Thanksgiving turkeys have been presented to
presidents since the days of Abe Lincoln. However, the current form of
the ceremony dates back to President Harry Truman in 1947.
A Minnesota man basted a 72-pound turkey to defeat his sister in their annual
sibling rivalry over who can prepare the biggest Thanksgiving bird. Rich Portnoy
roasted his enormous turkey in his 36-inch-wide, chef-calibre oven on
Thanksgiving Day to top the biggest bird his sister had ever cooked by 25
pounds. Big turkeys are a tradition in the Portnoy family. Rich Portnoy said his
father cooked birds of 30 pounds or more years ago. Last year, Andra Portnoy
cooked a 47-pounder to take the lead after her brother could only find a
37-pounder, even though he lives in the nation's top turkey-producing state.
This year, Rich Portnoy approached the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association,
which helped him find an 85-pound breeding tom that, at 59 weeks old, was near
the end of its useful life. He bought the turkey for $30, [£58GBP] loaded the
live bird into the back of the family's car and drove it to a processor, where
it was made oven-ready at 72 pounds. Portnoy and his wife, Charlene, invited 26
people to Thursday's feast. They weren't sure the big old tom would be edible,
so Portnoy also cooked a 19-pound 'backup turkey' on the backyard grill.
The turkey is a funny bird
Its head goes bobble-bobble;
And all he
knows is just one word...
And that is gobble-gobble.
'Don't assume you're always going to be understood. I wrote in a column
that one should put a cup of liquid in the cavity of a turkey when roasting
it. Someone wrote me that: "The turkey tasted great, but the plastic cup
melted." ' - Heloise.
