Hope springs eternal

I don't know if you knew this or not, but the President of the United States of America pardons a turkey every year.  One. Lucky. Turkey.

I don't know how long that pardon is for though.  I don't know if it's just for the Thanksgiving weekend or what. Is there a ranch full of Presidentially pardoned turkeys?  I. DON'T.  KNOW.

Here's a picture.  Enjoy the thousand words that are no doubt flooding your mind.

Re: Turkey Pardon Ranch - quit giving me new names for bands! I can't be in that many bands.

But for real, that is an excellent turkey. I love that it has different coloured eyes. Is that artistic license or actually how turkeys are? I don't know!

Turkeys who are pardoned go on to serve in important government agencies. And many are in Congress right now...

I feel like the reason this turkey was pardoned was because he might be a little retarded.

To be honest, I was going to say something similar to Madelyn. That guy has problems.
