Perhaps the question should be - 'Who is the Thanksgiving Turkey?'

The above funny Thanksgiving picture marked the 61st anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation. Live Thanksgiving turkeys have been presented to presidents since the days of Abe Lincoln. However, the current form of the ceremony dates back to President Harry Truman in 1947.
A Minnesota man basted a 72-pound turkey to defeat his sister in their annual sibling rivalry over who can prepare the biggest Thanksgiving bird. Rich Portnoy roasted his enormous turkey in his 36-inch-wide, chef-calibre oven on Thanksgiving Day to top the biggest bird his sister had ever cooked by 25 pounds. Big turkeys are a tradition in the Portnoy family. Rich Portnoy said his father cooked birds of 30 pounds or more years ago. Last year, Andra Portnoy cooked a 47-pounder to take the lead after her brother could only find a 37-pounder, even though he lives in the nation's top turkey-producing state.
This year, Rich Portnoy approached the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association, which helped him find an 85-pound breeding tom that, at 59 weeks old, was near the end of its useful life. He bought the turkey for $30, [£58GBP] loaded the live bird into the back of the family's car and drove it to a processor, where it was made oven-ready at 72 pounds. Portnoy and his wife, Charlene, invited 26 people to Thursday's feast. They weren't sure the big old tom would be edible, so Portnoy also cooked a 19-pound 'backup turkey' on the backyard grill.
The turkey is a funny bird
'Don't assume you're always going to be understood. I wrote in a column that one should put a cup of liquid in the cavity of a turkey when roasting it. Someone wrote me that: "The turkey tasted great, but the plastic cup melted." ' - Heloise.
