Okay, here’s a little known Thanksgiving fact you can use to impress your friends and family. Or maybe none of them will care.
What happens to the turkey that the president pardons this year? It’s going to Disneyland! After President Bush pardons the turkey (for its sin of being born, apparently), it will fly on United Airlines to California (window seat?) and serve as grand marshal in its Thanksgiving Day parade down Main Street.
Maybe the turkey will pull a Nancy Kerrigan, saying during the parade “This is dumb. I hate it. This the most corniest thing I have ever done.” Or maybe it will be happy it didn't get clubbed in the knee...or worse.
It’s too bad the Alaskan turkey Sarah Palin pardoned won’t go here. While being pardoned, that turkey got to watch its friends get decapitated.
After the Disneyland parade, the presidentially pardoned turkey (named Pumpkin) and its friend Pecan will live its remaining days at Santa's Reindeer Round-Up at Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland.
So if you go to Disneyland and get a big ole turkey leg for lunch…
