On behalf of everyone here at 10,000 Birds, Wild Turkeys everywhere, and every diet-book author ever, have a Happy Thanksgiving! (Even if you aren’t American and don’t celebrate our peculiar holidays.)

The reason that someone would put a giant inflatable turkey on their front yard to celebrate a day that is essentially dedicated to eating an actual turkey is unknown.  Care to enlighten us in the comments?
