Turkey That Crashed Through Windshield Became Family Dinner

There are many places to get your Thanksgiving turkey, but one flying through your windshield isn’t usually one of them.

The Pennsylvania woman chased her boyfriend around the dining room with a knife before plunging it into his chest.

The day after Thanksgiving has evolved into a corporate-sponsored consumer holiday called “Black Friday,” which has, itself, spawned a corporate media holiday that fills its gaping news hole with hours of Black Friday coverage, including “news” segments about all the stuff you could be out there buying, or waiting for “Cyber Monday” to buy. This year’s […]

Obama Gives Turkey Amnesty

President Obama used the annual turkey pardon to poke fun at his Republican opponents: President Obama joked Wednesday about his executive actions giving legal status to as many as 5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, saying his Thanksgiving pardon of a turkey would doubtlessly be criticized as “amnesty.” Obama said the pardon of […]

A White Thanksgiving
