A holiday classic!!
By saying "turkeys can fly" the implication is that all turkeys can fly, and that isn't correct.
A correct statement would be "some turkeys can fly".
Your basketball thing is also incorrect, for the same reason.
Wild turkeys can fly just fine . Ben Franklin wanted to make it the National Bird . Inside of 20 yards , wild turkeys have 100% vision . They see everything and if you have ever hunted them , you already know this .
WKRP had so many seminal moments . From the episode where Carlton thought it was foot powder to Herb selling insurance , it never failed .
i saw the softball episode the other day. My gosh Bailey filled out that T-shirt jersey nicely.
They sure can! While I've never hunted wild turkeys, I have seen them often while out squirrel and coon hunting along the Potomac. Last night we had one in the tree above us, and when we came through it took off and flew away over the treetops. How far I don't know, but it flew out of sight, so probably 100 yards at least. And in the quiet of the forest, they sound like an army helicopter taking off!
We raised heritage-breed turkeys a few years ago. They do fly... straight up to the roof, where they poop. A lot. Took almost a year for all the turkey poop to wash off our roof.
For me, that happened considerably more recently...
Was also team Bailey.
We live in the city. I learned they could fly when the flock of 8 or so that was inhabiting our block for a few weeks walked along the sidewalk and then one by one flapped up to the tree across the street when a big dog came around the corner.
I'm old enough to remember when turkeys were shy and skittish. Turkey hunting required stealth and patience.
Now flocks of 'em everywhere, and they ain't afraid of anything.
Always a fan of WKRP and the turkey drop still cracks me up today. Bailey always gave a nice feeling, she was so hot
Yeah, the (wild) turkeys seem to enjoy browsing on our land up at The Cabin and they're fairly tame - but so are the rabbits.
I guess comparing a wild turkey to a factory turkey, is like comparing a Piper Cub to a Boeing 737. One still handles OK with the power off, the other one, not exactly.
I came super close to getting a wild turkey through my windshield over by the Nantahala - that would have been no fun at all.
Could have ended up like Randy Johnson and the pigeon .
