    That's what they want you to think. I knew I saw some extra special drumsticks in that Frontierland turkey leg cart.

    I guess it's what we each are doing to ourselves, when we just can't 'avoid' that churro cart for the 15th time on any given trip, eh?

    It's likely turkey genetics, more than diet, that gets 'em in the end. The big birds are bred to put on weight quickly, and there is no point to life expectancy so they don't have much. A keeper might be able to keep the bird from putting on too much weight, but it'd be severely restricted in its food. I don't know which would make a turkey happier- to have "enough" food, gain weight and die, or to feel like it's starving and live a bit longer. I've been told the average "table" turkey lives about a year, if it escapes being called dinner.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
