[Picture Source.] Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Yes, I'm vegetarian, but this is just a holiday of habit, my family has celebrated every year. Funny thing though, even before I was vegetarian, I never liked turkey. I absolutely adore the animal, but not the taste.
Unfortunately, they're not appreciated in the manner that they should be. As Morrissey says during and after his time in The Smiths, "And the turkey you festively slice is murder," and how it's, "Sizzling blood and the unholy stench of murder."
However, on a more tender and loving note, I'd love to share a film on this post. A film that I watched on PBS last year and has remained in my heart ever since. The title is "My Life As a Turkey" in which Joe Hutto is left with a batch of wild turkey eggs on his front yard. What happens afterward is a story that many would never expect. The best part is the fact that the film is based on a true story.
Below is the link to the full version of the film, thanks to PBS. I recommend this film to everyone: Vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians, and meat eaters as well. I hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I look forward to enjoying some pumpkin pie.
