    Sad News About Last Year's Turkeys - Philadelphia Daily News

    Sad news to report to you.

    Philadelphia Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky called Disneyland publicist John McClintock to ask about last yaer's pardoned Thanksgiving turkeys, Marshmallow and Yam.

    "'They were raised as Thanksgiving turkeys,' McClintock says, which are 'not meant to live a long time.' The diet they are fed 'literally makes the turkeys so fat it's difficult for them to stand on their legs. That's one reason they did not live a long time and were not expected to live a long time.'

    "Celebrity turkeys dropping dead that fast isn't what I'd hoped to hear from The Happiest Place On Earth."

    They exist so we can have turkey on Thanksgiving (among other times...)

    It's the circle of life. (theirs anyway)

    We appreciate their "sacrifice". LOL

    Bon apetite!

    I thought one of the two was still alive at least earlier this month?

    Actually, Yam and Marshmallow were the two turkeys from two years ago. Last years' were named Flyer and Fryer. I'm pretty sure those two are still alive...

    I talked to a CM about the turkeys in August and he was surprised they were still alive at that point. Plus it is time for more turkeys to come soon anyways, almost perfect timing.

    Fryer is alive and well, and Marshmallow & Yam lived FAR past their life expectancy. I've been told that two of them (although I don't remember which 2 ) didn't get along at ALL and that's why they only had 1 on stage at a time - because they'd have fought with each other!

    My avatar is (was?) the last remaining pardoned turkey, after the first one died. That photo was taken a couple months ago, but I don't see the sign explaining that they were pardoned up anymore. The one shown above, dated November 12th, looks a little too skinny to be Flyer or Fryer.

    Didn't they end up at a Turkey Leg stand?

    One died of heatstroke. The other was still alive the last time I looked.
