Pardon a turkey why dontcha? Phaedra Parks (the lawyer on “Real Housewives of Atlanta”) likes to start sentences with “Everybody knows…” Well we are borrowing her catch phrase to say.. Everybody knows that turkeys are our friends and not to be eaten. They purr when pet, mourn the loss of loved ones, and have just as much a right to this earth as we do. They have also been so genetically mutilated by factory farms that they can no longer breed normally. All factory farmed turkeys must be bred via artificial insemination as their skin is bred for white meat which means if they had vaginal sex, their insides would literally rip open because they are so thin.
