Talking Turkey: Basementcast #14

You may or may not know that Ben Franklin thought that the national bird should have been the wild turkey. He thought the bald eagle to be of questionable moral character and that it was lazy since it scavenged and stole food from other birds. Wild turkey’s on the other hand, he thought were a much more respectable bird, maybe a little vain and goofy, but they were courageous. Maybe if not for the unfortunate name, its connotations, and the fact that they taste pretty good, there might have been a different bird adorning our money. Of course then what would have everyone eaten at Thanksgiving? Desert of course. Basementcast #14 hopefully will be on your menu this week, it may not be as good as grandma’s pumpkin pie, but it certainly is as good as fruit cake.
