[adsenseyu5] Forty-three million turkeys sacrificed themselves for your Thanksgiving dinner this year. More than likely the turkey you're eating is a Broad Breasted White and came from a Butterball plant in Arkansas. Lines in the factory run 7 days a week starting in October so that you can have laughter, gluttony, and booze with your family today.
The first Thanksgiving was in 1621--deer was eaten in place of turkey. If turkey had been eaten it would have been able to fly and more importantly killed in a party of one and not on an assembly line with 10,000 others.
