President Obama Spares Two Turkeys From Annual Ritualistic Genocide


At the White House today, President Obama quipped that it "feels pretty good to stop at least one ‘shellacking’ this November" as he continued a weird presidential tradition of pardoning turkeys for Thanksgiving — in this case, two 21-week-olds named Apple and Cider. Approximately 46 million other turkeys who were not pardoned will be devoured tomorrow.
