Here's this morning's challenge question: The average life span of one of THESE is a year and a half. The oldest one on record, though, went for 15 years. What?
It's a TURKEY!
The very oldest on record hailed, we're proud to say, from Massachusetts.
Other things you may not know about the bird you'll enjoy tomorrow:
A group of turkeys is called a rafter or a gang.
Wild turkeys are promiscuous, with gobblers trying to breed with as many hens as possible during mating season.
Everyone knows the “gobble-gobble” turkey sound, but it’s one of only 28 different calls the birds produce. They also let out some “putts,” “yelps” and “hisses.”
Turkeys apparently have dandruff problems!
We are not, however, recommending basting with Head & Shoulders tomorrow...
Walter knew it right away this morning - he's won a $30 gift card to Alberto's!
