    Have you seen that Red Bull ad on TV?

    Pig, cow, sheep and turkey see the Pilgrim and Indian coming carrying an axe. Pig says, "This doesn't look good. Here drink this."

    They pass the can around, but by the time it gets to the turkey, it is empty.

    "Red Bull Gives You Wings!":)

    And here in Northwest Florida, there are enough of them for everyone, like Dunkin' Donuts in Boston!

    Like Tom's River, New Jersey being overrun by wild turkeys. It would never occur to a Las Crusian (at least a native Las Crusian) to complain to the city counsel about it, it would be like being overrun by free pizza ;)

    No kidding. I wish Gustavus was overrun by wild turkeys. Would save me a fortune and I'd have a use for all these shotgun Shells......

    And Fritz, don’t paint that Ranger Pink, otherwise you’ll be known worldwide!

    Erkki, I believe I can say with reasonably high confidence that there is very little chance Fritz will be painting the Ranger pink.

    If Ben Franklin had his way, the Turkey would be the emblem of the post office and we would be eating Eagles for Thanksgiving!

    And the Thanksgiving holiday poster would feature a picture of an eagle looking you straight in the eye, and saying "You want a piece of me???"

    Absolutely priceless. "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."

    I have seen wild turkeys fly....But not very high or far.....it certainly would be interesting to drop one from a copter and see if it would glide down safely. I bet it would.

    That would be truly unfortunate. I have it on good athority that eagles are not very good eating.

    I have seen Wild Turkey's fly too... right out of the bottle and into my shot glass ;)

    Believe it or not, there was an actual airplane named Wild Turkey, it won the Reno Formula One race one or two years. The builder was John Parker, an airline pilot who named it after the booze, and unfortunately had a little too much fondness for the stuff.

    I've seen wild turkeys fly too. Their glide ratio is about 3 or 4 to 1. Farm turkeys likely glide even more like bricks.
