Save the Turkey!

Or the 'Truckeys,' if you've misspelled 'Turkey.' This is the second of Bennie's annual Save the Turkey shirts. She isn't vegetarian or vegan. She'll happily tuck into a fine hunk of bird like the rest of her godless meat-eating family. The shirt and its statement is just in honor of a bird that almost, almost became our national symbol. Could you imagine the turkey in place of the mighty eagle on the presidential seal? Just take a minute and mull that over . . .

Today, I'll be helping out at the 4th Grade class' Green Corn Festival. I get to make enough frozen corn for 20 people and serve it up. There's going to be turkey, too, I hear. After grub, we'll be engaging in Native American crafts. I wonder if we'll have to wrastle a deer for its hide and sinew. I think that would be more authentic than breaking out the naugahide and Elmer's.

Until then: Remember the Truckeys!
