  33. 33. A Dangerous Recent DevelopmentRecently, the origami-inspiredtable-ready paper bag turkey hasmaterialized in the craft world.It does not elicit the same rawaesthetic energy as multi-coloredtail feathers or a beak.The concept fails to offer theopportunities for individualexpression inherent in the paperbag turkey tradition. http://www.thepartyanimal-blog.org/15-brown-paper-bag- turkey-craft-ideas-kids/
  34. 34. Corporate Turkey Design Typically over-done and over-sized. What first- grader would proudly claim credit for this?http://onecharmingparty.com/
  35. 35. (sung to the tune of "Clementine") Albuquerque is a turkey And hes feathered and hes fine And he wobbles and he gobbles and hes absolutely mine. Hes the best pet that you can get.. Better than a dog or cat.Albuquerque Hes my Albuquerque turkey And Im awfully proud of that.Turkey He once told me , very frankly he preferred to be my pet, not the main course at my dinner, and I told him not to fret.an American Folk Song And my Albuquerque turkeysuited to the Season is so happy in his bed, Cause for our Thanksgiving dinner... We had egg foo yong instead.
