2011’s “Pardoned” Turkey

Credit: Grist

Every year on Thanksgiving, the President of the United States grants a pardon to a certain turkey that gets to live on instead of becoming the main course at a dinner. This lucky animal is then shipped off to either Disney World or Disneyland where he leads the parade.

On the subject, President Obama told Orion Magazine:

“There are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And then there are moments like this, where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland.”

It so happens that this year’s pardoned turkey is a specially trained showbird! …Coincidence???
