And thank goodness for that. Turkey is good eatin’.
I love how Palin = Scandal! Comments on the video at YouTube, as of this posting, say things like “I bet PETA is knocking on her door right about now.”
Um, PETA didn’t know that turkeys are food? Where do they think turkey sandwiches come from? The sandwich fairy? Well, it may have been impolitic, but I’m betting most of the folks thinking this is some sort of Palin scandal or PR tragedy don’t have any trouble shoveling the product of set “turkey massacre” in their mouth.
I have seen this sort of unspeakable horror before. It America, we call it “a farm”. Sheesh.
Sarah Palin Pardons Turkey but Ignores Veterans. That headline just jumped out at me as “huh?” I thought the guys who did the “Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent” hoax were done. What, you didn’t know all that was bullhockey? Well, more on the Palin hoax here. It even got a little play in The New York Times. Learn something new every day, dontcha? You betcha!
Paliin’s Turkey Photo Op. And Palin’s Turkey Pardon Mishap. Hey, as long as the turkey she pardoned didn’t get butchered, it’s not a mishap. Sarah Palin Interviewed in front of Turkey Murder. Murder! Again, in the real world, we call that “farming” or “food production” or “Thanksgiving”.
You spoiled urbanites should be grateful for the thankless toiling the folks who make your sandwiches and the beef jerkey you scarf while blogging about how stupid they are do.
Man, that was an awkward sentence. I’m sure Tim “I’m-Smarter-Than-You-You-Backwoods-Hick” Hatch, who commented on my Jon Stewart/Sarah Palin post will nail me for that one, if he returns one day.
I should probably re-read The Elements of Style. That’s a good book.
