Thanksgiving Is All About the Bird: My Polarizing Hand Turkey


In November of 2013, I posted my own spin on the classic American Thanksgiving "Hand Turkey" drawing on my Facebook account.  The turkeys typically seen in these drawings seem happy that they are going to be eaten.  This always bothered me.  Add the fact that Christmas (in America) seems to start on November 1st and Thanksgiving gets skipped, so turkeys can't even be a holiday mascot anymore (for a day when they are eaten, no less).  Turkeys have every right to be pissed.

The reaction to my drawing was, shall we say, mixed.  Some folks thought it was hilarious, but I found out that some people, like my Mom (who is not on Facebook) saw the drawing and did not like it one bit.  Interesting to note: quite a few women (my own age, and a bit older or younger) loved it.  I think you can chalk that up to the fact that "bad boys" are appealing.
