WKRP Thanksgiving:  As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly


Although Canadian Thanksgiving is technically tomorrow, across the country millions of families will be gathering today for a traditional meal. Feelings of love and warmth, if only superficial, will abound. Like our neighbours to the south this usually entails a roast turkey. I am no exception, and will be stuffing and roasting as the day goes on. While taking time to be thankful for so many things, I have begun the annual  process of recalling a classic episode of WKRP in Cincinnati.

…  don’t forget to remove the giblets and neck that have been stuffed into both ends of the bird!!

A Thanksgiving promotion goes awry when hundreds of turkeys are dropped from a helicopter over a shopping mall parking lot leading to a scene of fowl carnage.

The entire calamity is summed up by owner Bob Carlson when he states:  As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

Here’s hoping all Canadians who choose to imbibe remember that life lesson, as well as the golden rule of turkey preparation: don’t forget to remove the giblets and neck that have been stuffed into both ends of the bird!! In the meantime, while the bird is roasting have a look at the famous scene.
