Turkey fighting- it isn't what you think.
Our son works nights at a local factory (well-known maker of delicious things). Today, he came home around 645 AM and was carrying a box. Apparently, the factory gave all their employees a frozen ten pound turkey. (the "unclaimed" turkeys go to a local charity).
Jase got the turkey into the freezer and then he went to bed. DG came down just now and I said: "Hey, Jason brought home a turkey."
I told him how the factory gave out turkeys to their employees.
DG: "We already have a turkey. Did it fit in the freezer?"
DG: "I hope it don't fight with the other turkey." [I just looked at him and he continued] "You know, cuz they hate each other."
Me: "Frozen dead turkeys hate each other?"
DG: "Yeah. You know how turkeys are." [no, apparently I don't!]
There was a several moment pause.
DG: "I hope they don't start nothing. We'll end up with little turkeys everywhere."
Me: "You just said they were going to fight."
DG: [scoffing noise] "They gotta have makeup sex..." [with a tone of "duh, how did you not know"]
That's where he left it. He went and got his coffee and when he sat down in the living room, I had to tell him one thing about frozen turkeys.
Me: "Even if they do have makeup sex, I don't think little turkeys would be a problem... most turkeys that are butchered and frozen for eating are boy turkeys."
DG: "Ah, well... they're gonna fight then."
Me: "What if they're gay turkeys? They can still have makeup sex."
DG: "I ain't never heard of gay turkeys."
Me: "Why not? They have gay penguins."
DG: "No they don't."
Me: "They're in the news and I think they raised a baby together."
DG: "These ain't penguins. These are turkeys. And they hate each other." [short pause] "They're gonna fight."
So... frozen turkeys hate each other and are going to fight... but frozen turkeys can't be gay.
