Before it could be brought out for the ceremonial Presidential party, it was discovered that the White House Thanksgiving turkey was not in residence at the White House, and had in fact been called up for active duty in Iraq. “We will be post-poning the annual Thanksgiving Day event,” White House spokesman Dan Bartlett, but he denied that the White House would be pardoning another turkey in its place. It is expected that the turkey will be recalled from duty with the 109th infantry division, returned to the United States, set for execution, then pardoned. All professed relief that his whereabouts are known, particularly as it is believed that he had not been adequately outfitted or trained for the Iraq mission to which he was assigned.
