It’s Thanksgiving in America, and as I think about all the things I’m thankful for, my mind goes back to one of the funniest shows that was ever on TV. It was called WKRP In Cincinnati, and they had one particular show that was titled Turkeys Away. The premise is the radio station wanted to have a publicity promotion, and the president of the station thought it would be great if a helicopter released a bunch of turkeys from a helicopter. However, the problem was noticed later when their ace reporter was on the scene when the turkeys were released from the plane; turkeys can’t fly.
This is the “news” account of the calamity of the turkeys, by intrepid reporter Les Nessman. Enjoy this clip, and enjoy your Thanksgiving, folks.
