presidential turkey

what exactly is the reason for the president “pardoning” a turkey every year? i’m willing to wager a chunk of change that the bush family isn’t eating a tofu turkey come november 25th, so saving one turkey while eating its friend isn’t exactly serving a purpose.

Biscuits, Gravy get presidential pardon – Nov 17, 2004

also, my favorite quote from the article:

“The turkeys Bush pardoned last year died within three months after their “pardons,” a result of drugs that make them grow excessively”
