The Floor is Open...Let's Talk Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving, my wonderful bloggy buds! Hope your day is going exactly like you planned and hoped for.

I'm off helping volunteers prepare Meals on Wheels (giving regular workers a much-deserved break), then on to my parents' for the traditional gathering, where I'll snag the gobbler carcass for a slammin' gumbo, if I'm lucky and fast enough. What's the highlight of your day?

A friend sent me this little story (supposedly true) via email, so I just had to share the wealth since it fits the Turkey Day theme so well. Enjoy!

One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, Mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister she needed something from the store. When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.

When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

With a look of total shock on her face, Mom exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant Bird!"

At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry. It took the family two hours to convince her turkeys lay eggs!

Yep..................she's blonde!

I saw that on America's Funniest Video's ! They did that and the sister/daughter/whatever thought it was a baby turkey and was going "gross!" and all that *laughing!*

The turkey joke sounds like a great new family tradition.

I feel the same about you, MLH. Happy Thursday. :)

Awesome, Angie! I hope the MOW goes well. Such a great organization.

We're celebrating my hubby's birthday today, getting our Christmas tree up and then going to my sister's for Thanksgiving feast. It's such a blessed day.

Have a great one, Angie! Hugs!

Hey...I didn't know they knew my twin sis, Pam!! That sounds like something she would think. It took us nearly a year to convince her that cookie dough would not rise in her stomach if she ate it

Happy Thanksgiving Angie.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Thank you, Carrie girl. Ditto to you and the fam.

Ooo, Janna, all sounds fun. Hope your day is a great one!

Poor twinsie, Ang. ;) Have a great day yourself.

Thanks for the laugh, but darned if that turkey doesn't look way better in a bikini than I would.

Have a great one, Angie. :)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Me too, Hil! Imagine a hormone-injected Butterball strung with dental floss. *shiver* Hope your day was fun.
