The Annual Turkey Massacre

Homo sapiens is what is me. I am so happy I am not a turkey. I am not taxonomically classified in a family known to ornithologists as Melogracidae. With a sauce made from the cranberry, these creatures will be served come Thursday. Without their feathers, they will spend most of the day, inside some hot ovens just roasting away. Therefore, these animals among the vertebrate ranks, will not be spending their time giving thanks. So many turkey lives will be lost. It will be like another holocaust.
