PRESIDENTIAL TURKEY PARDONING.
The midterms elections may have ended earlier this month but another election season is in full flight between the two turkeys vying to become this year’s official National Thanksgiving Turkey.
This year’s candidates: Peas and Carrots.
One of the two turkeys will be selected via an online White House poll to become this year’s National Thanksgiving Turkey.
…This year’s turkeys hail from a farm in South Dakota. They were driven to Washington over the weekend and checked into the Willard Hotel, where the birds are staying in their very own hotel suite ahead of White House event.
And though only one turkey will get the official White House pardon, both will be spared from the Thanksgiving table.
After tomorrow’s pardoning ceremony, Peas and Carrots will move down to Virginia Tech University where they will be housed at a facility named “Gobbler’s Rest” where they will live out the remainder of their natural lives. But while these turkeys are guaranteed not to become dinner, these 20-week old birds likely only have a few good months of life left to live.
PS: I voted for Peas!
