    This is horrible. Poor turkeys! Meat is murder. Eating rotting corpses does not bring health, just the opposite. Go vegan!

    Eat ham instead. Its tastier anyhow and far fewer pigs would have to die than turkys for the same amount of meat. Then all those turkeys could be used for turkey jerky!! Yum!
