True Or False?

One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. To get my sister out of the house, mom asked her to get something for her at the store.

When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then put the bird back in 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 her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patsy, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At this horrifying news, my sister started to cry.

It took the family two hours to convince Patsy that turkeys don't get pregnant...THEY LAY EGGS!

Oh! This is absolutely hysterical! I will have to read it to my folks. Maybe even to their Sunday School class!

We had a phlebotomist who really thought Cheerios were doughnut seeds. She also tried to iron the wrinkles out of her PAPER lab coat and wondered why it charred so.

Happy Thanksgiving.
