We didn't go out looking for turkeys today.

But, apparently, the turkeys were looking for us!



Place: The Arboretum, Madison, Wisconsin. Time: Sunset.

AND: Now, the eagerly anticipated Part 2, The Turkeys Continue to Walk Around:

Actually, there is a Part 3, and it does get a little action-y after Meade... well, Meade is off-camera. Let's just look at the turkeys:

What the heck were Pelosi, Reid, Barney Frank, and Joe Biden doing in the Arboretum??

Cheers,

Who knew that wild turkeys have purple feathers. Purple seeks you out. Over at Publix even the natural free range birds are featherless.

vbspurs said...

Never mind the purple feathers. I'm more concerned that there is a Part 2.

vbspurs said...

wv: jolocurm!

A jolly curmudgeon?

edutcher said...

The turkeys always seem to find you, that's the way life is.

Just be glad you didn't see Les Nessman :)

WV "ribbi" What a Jewish frog says Saturday night at temple.

You're concerned? How do you think the turkeys feel?

Cue funeral music.

Dad Bones said...

Will travel for gravel.

vbspurs said...

How do you think the turkeys feel?

LOL. That's right! Part 2 will be a Meade iPhone video close-up of the gobbler on a platter.

SMGalbraith said...

Or him flat out on the couch asleep with gravy drippings on his shirt.

It won't be pretty. For the turkeys or for us.

Ron said...

If their desire for retribution could be stuffed in a duck and that stuffed in a chicken would it be a...Vengducken?

Lem said...

They are very dignified with a tie..

The tie was meant to impress Althouse.

SMGalbraith said...

Now, the eagerly anticipated Part 2, The Turkeys Continue to Walk Around:

Yeah, dead turkeys walking, if you ask me.

Sean Penn is in there somewhere, my guess.

vbspurs said...

LOL, Ron! Did you happen to listen to Prairie Home Companion last night? The "Guy Noir" episode featured a lady making a vegan turducken.

"A turnip. A duck egg and an onion."

dbp said...

It ain't cool being no jive turkey so close to Thanksgiving.

vbspurs said...

AND: Now, the eagerly anticipated Part 2, The Turkeys Continue to Walk Around:

No offence, Mrs. Meade. But your video sure could use some Van Halen.

Ron said...

Victoria! PHC is not high on my listening choices, shall we say! I do miss you, though, m'dear!

traditionalguy said...

When we see Meade has installed a combination Wood Chipper/Turkey Beheader out in the back then we will know that Palin has won over Althouse. That may have to await her inauguration day.

Jason (the commenter) said...

They're taunting you with their deliciousness!

SMGalbraith said...

Thought for sure there'd be a Palin joke in here by now.

Anger affects the funny bone.

Ron said...

Don't tell Sully about the vegan turducken; he'll "strategically" place one in the hopes he can nurture a better VP for The One in '12...

Jason (the commenter) said...

In part three it goes from a documentary to an action flick. Meade machine guns down the turkeys, who turn out to be international drug trafficers, after they kidnap Althouse and hold her for ransom.

jeff said...

They are all over the place north of here. Drive along some of the back roads and see flocks of several hundred. And yes, Virginia....Turkeys CAN fly.

traditionalguy said...

If they can dub in Pinker and Wright's Bloggingheads with these Turkeys movements that would give those guys a little more life.

CAST

Meade - Harrison Ford
Ann - Sandra Bullock
Evil European Terrorist Turkey - Titus

Ron said...

These turkeys take their plastic surgeons pics of Bob Wright when they want to show him what they want removed...

rhhardin said...

They're looking for candy wrappers.

vbspurs said...

Ron I love your new avatar. Very chic. :)

Ron said...

Vic, I'm seeing young Joan Blondell as Althouse myself...

SMGalbraith said...

Yes, this does look like a few of those Wright/Kaus bloggingheads shows.

Man...what's with Bob? I get Kaus; but Wright sometimes?

Ron said...

Vic go to my blog for Robert Benchley comparision to my avatar!

Floydster said...

Sandra Bullock as Althouse?!

Much more appropriate: Kathy Bates!

Alex said...

Gobble, gobble, gobble. Turkeys lead the most blissfully unaware existence. Their fate is to end up on our tables.

SMGalbraith said...

Their fate is to end up on our tables

Yeah, well that's not really where they end up.

But we get the idea.

As long as they don't.

SMGalbraith said...

As sequels usually are, Part 2 was definitely a letdown.

Godfather II? Now there was a sequel.

This? Eh...

Alex said...

Yeah, well that's not really where they end up.

But we get the idea.

As long as they don't.


Why not? Turkey all year long is a good thing on my table, lunch-wrap and general food-stuff. Gobble, gobble.

1jpb said...

Speaking of turkeys; even the biggest Palin fans (e.g. vbspurs) must be willing to acknowledge that this didn't turn out to be the best photo op of all time.

Alex said...

1jpb - can't you keep politics out ever? Are you some fucking psycho?

SMGalbraith said...

It was 36 posts before that was brought up?

They're losing their energy.

Well, turkey does make one sleepy.

1jpb said...

Alex,

Er...I don't know how to tell you this but your reaction fits the following description far better than does my comment.

"A severe mental disorder, with or without organic damage, characterized by derangement of personality and loss of contact with reality and causing deterioration of normal social functioning."

Have you considered some sort of medication to help you reign in your anger.

BTW, have you seen what Ron wrote? I'm sure he can expect an outburst at any moment. What? No outburst. I see.

SMG,

Maybe you could help your pal Alex with is irrational anger. If nothing else, you're leading by example w/ your reasonable comment. Is he watching? Is he learning?

Time will tell.

Alex said...

1jpb - no the one who comes into a turkey thread and immediately brings up politics is an insane psychopath who needs to be arrested and incarcerated.

1jpb said...

Right, Alex. I'm sure that you got that definition from a clinical text.

Your uncontrollable anger is sensible. Sure.

Alex said...

1jpb - I am hardly angry. I've just enjoyed a nice rack of lamb with brandy.

Murder most fowl!

vbspurs said...

Meade chased away the turkey. Harrassment, harrassment I say!

Turkeys, having learned their lesson from the last batch of immigrants they failed to stop back in the 17th century, now go after immigrants with a vengeance.

MadisonMan said...

Why can't you shop for turkeys at Sentry Hilldale like the rest of normal people?
