Let's Get Something Straight...

Rebecca Aloisi, vice president of marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate told reporters the other day that one of the turkeys pardoned by President Obama and sent there last year had to be "euthanized".  The tongue-in-cheek story was that the death of the turkey was very suspicious in light of the approaching Thanksgiving holiday and that the "remains" could not be accounted for.

I got a chuckle out of that, but let's get something straight.  You do not "euthanize" turkeys.  You "kill" 'em.  You take an ax and cut their heads and their feet off.  Then you throw 'em in scalding hot water, let 'em soak a bit and then pluck their feathers out.  The next thing you do is cut 'em open, stick your hand inside and rip their guts out.  After that you fill 'em back up with stuffing, put 'em in the oven, and cook 'em.  Then you sit down at the dinner table with family and friends and eat 'em.  "Bon Appetit".
