Turkeys: Tasty if you can catch them

You've sent me some great ideas for overcoming my gift-resistance, but tonight I'm too tired to think of anything but turkeys.  Thirty-eight turkeys met their maker today, and it was so cold that all I thought about was how nice it felt to thrust my cold hands into their hot entrails.

There's so much more to say, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow.  For now, please amuse yourself with a three second video of the hardest part of the project --- catching the turkeys.  (If the youtube link doesn't work, try this link to a smaller version in mpg format.)
