Pregnant Turkey Story

Gun-tottin Puritans had their sights set on wild Turkeys and Churchmen!

Harvest Thanksgiving

Autumn Leaves



One year at Thanksgiving, my Mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast.  Knowing how gullible my sister is, my Mom decided to play a trick...

She told my sister that she needed something from the store.
When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed
the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey,
and re-stuffed the  turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.
When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the
oven  and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit
something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird with a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry.
It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!
