Friday FunLink: Snakes? No – A Turkey on a Plane

I didn’t have a Friday FunLink until a few minutes ago. I was eating lunch (fortunately not a turkey sandwich) and going through my many daily emails from the Washington Post and found the photo above along with an astounding true story.

You’ve heard of Turkey in the Straw. Here’s Turkey on the Plane

It’s a great article and the photo of the turkey being transported in a wheelchair is precious.

The best quote from the article is:

Tom Bunn, a former commercial pilot who now runs an organization to help people overcome their fear of flying, told Fox News that it is quite easy to get a therapist note for such occasions.

“Any therapist can sign off on any kind of animal,” Bunn said. “Science has proven that when dogs look at you with total devotion, it produces oxytocin, a hormone that shuts down the fear mechanism. The turkey, I don’t think so.”

A big turkey dinner loaded with tryptophan always relaxes me. Would a large, living turkey sitting next to me on a plane do similarly? Ahh..no.
