Now that Thanksgiving is 24 hours past and America is reawakening from its massive food coma, families have the time to survey the preponderance of food left in their refrigerators. Most likely, turkey still abounds. And though, by the end of the week, as the pile of turkey dwindles but never seems to disappear, you may wish your turkey looked more like the turkeys below, keep plowing through the rest of the festive bird, and while doing so, enjoy the quotes about turkey’s below.
“Most turkeys taste better the day after; my mother’s tasted better the day before.” Rita Rudner
“I love Thanksgiving turkey… It’s the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts.” Arnold Scharzenneger
“Turkey, unlike chicken, has very elegant characteristics. It has more of a cache than chicken. Turkey is a delicacy, so it should be presented in such a way.” Todd English
“I hate turkeys. If you stand in the meat section at the grocery store long enough, you start to get mad at turkeys. There’s turkey ham, turkey bologna, turkey pastrami. Someone needs to tell the turkey, man, just be yourself.” Mitch Hedberg
“I have no desire to crow over anybody or to see anybody eating crow, figuratively or otherwise. We should all get together and make a country in which everybody can eat turkey whenever he pleases.” Harry S. Truman
