Happy Thanksgiving

If Benjamin Frankling had had things his way, you'd now be eating Bald Eagles instead of Turkeys.



And refrain from saying you're eating Turkey on Thanksgiving, the Turks might take offence!

I think I'll stick with turkeys as a food item.

Can I get a cute hat like that for our Michigan turkeys?

@John: I once actually ate a slice of White-tailed Eagle. We found a very, very fresh road kill that was still in good shape but the tail was missing (worthless as a mounted specimen) and of course bones were broken (no skeletton specimen) son aone of my friends decided to keep it - he was an avid collector of bird wings and feathers.
When I came to visit him that evening by chance, he had just finished fried Eagle breast, so I tried a tiny bite.
It was horrible. Incredibly tough and it tasted like old rancid fish oil.
Anyway, I just meant to tell you that you have my support.

@Joan: well, you know, you couldn't eat the national symbol, right? So I suppose it would make sense.

@Wren: of course you can, just print the photo and cut it out (I specifically designed the image to be used for this).
however, the hat is not a one-size-fits-all, so it might be okay to cut out ten hats and make a pair of gloves?
