This week's question comes from Lydia Kang in Counciltucky, Iowa. Lydia writes:
I saw 18 turkeys walking around in my yard today. It's November.
Should I warn them? About, you know...a certain holiday coming up that involves, er, gravy?
Let me begin this response by explaining a common holiday misconception. Basically every holiday should involve gravy in some way, if you are doing it right. Not just Thanksgiving. Think about it. Thanksgiving needs gravy, sure. But what about Christmas? Now I know right now you are thinking, That's only two holidays, what about Yom Kippur? You aren't even supposed to eat on Yom Kippur! You are to be fasting! And while that is true, what do you think observers break the 25 hour fast with? That's right, gravy. Have you ever had unleavened bread dry? And I don't even need to get into how much more fun Groundhog Day is with gravy, now do I?
As for the turkeys, you should warn them. It's only fair. Now how to warn them? Hmm. We need something loud enough for them all to hear and get it. I know! a pump action shotgun! That should warn them! Though I guess you'd only technically be warning 17/18 turkeys. Oh well.
