Why did the turkey cross the road?

Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving jokes, from contributing editor Richard Lederer:

Why did the turkey cross the road?

To prove he wasn’t chicken.

Is turkey soup good for you?

Not if you’re the turkey

Why did the person quit smoking cold turkey?

Because the feathers made him cough.

Why did the turkey bolt down its food?

Because it was a gobbler.

What do turkeys like to eat on Thanksgiving?

Nothing, they’re already stuffed.

Did you hear about the conservative turkey?

It had two right wings.

Happy “Turkey” Day!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
