Funny Thanksgiving Day Story


One year at Thanksgiving, I went to my sister’s house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, I decided to play a trick on her.

I told my sister that she needed something else from the store and sent her down the road.

When she left, I took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed in a very small Cornish Hen that I had hidden in the stuff I brought over to her house.

I then re-stuffed the turkey and put the whole thing back into the oven.

When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing.

When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

With a look of total shock on my face, I told my sister, “Velvet, you’ve cooked a pregnant bird!”

At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to bawl her eyes out.

It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!

This is yet another story from Teddy Burriss – maybe, just maybe you will laugh with me.
