Subject: Dubya and the turkey
From: GUEST,Roger the skiffler
Date: 20 Nov 01 - 08:19 AM

If anyone wonders why the Prez pardoned the turkey, they only have to look at the cover photo of today's UK Guardian (sadly not in the online version) where the turkey is , ahem, inspecting his groin area with its beak, and this is in public not the oval office. I understand the turkey isn't going to wash its feathers but ask its mama to store them in the fridge.
A White House spokesperson said "It was a female turkey, nothing deviant about Mr Bush".

Roger underestimates the Guardian when he says of this "(sadly not in the online version)"

Click on here for the picture and details of the caption competition the Guardian is having -

This photograph by Kevin Lamarque (Reuters) appeared on the front of the Guardian on November 20 2001 with the following caption: 'A turkey named Liberty takes President Bush by surprise during the annual turkey pardoning event three days before Thanksgiving'.

If you can come up with an even wittier caption, email it to paul.hamilos@guardian.co.uk by Friday November 30 2001. The best entries will appear on the site and a handful of lucky winners will receive a copy of The Guardian Year 2001, an anthology of the paper's best writing, plus The Bedside Years, the best writing from the Guardian 1951-2000, edited by Matthew Engel.

Tip: No marks will be given for the following puns, both of which have already appeared in the Guardian: 'A bird in the Bush' and 'President finds turkey's antics below the belt'

Good luck!

Ain't it nice to wake up to something that funny? being the inveterate practical joker I am, I yelled in mock alarm to Heather, who was groggily getting out of bed "Bush has been assaulted!" I raced into the bedroom with the photo and she practically rolled on the floor! Seems very "Clinton-esque".....although he would have maintained that the turkey was 'merely a good friend'.

Okay. I knew the term "dubya" reminded me of something. Found it under Polish slang. I seemed to remember a saying, "you bet your sweet dupa." Turns out dupa means "ass," or "asshole" in Polish. This apparently refers to the actual hole, not the person. Also there is "dupcia," which means "little ass." This is the same as "cipcia," which translates to "little pussy." This is also sometimes called "dupka." My apologies for this lapse into Polish semantics. I just felt these were certain refinements that would be appreciated by Spaw. The foregoing translations do not necessarily reflect the writer's feelings about our current elected...well whatever.

funny, the Washington Post published a pic of the turkey in a much less porvocative pose...but REFERRED to it's proclivity to stick it's head in the crotches of the suiys nearby...guess their photographer was not quick enough...

The Washington Post might have noted the similarity between that picture and Wild Bill's proclivity for allowing himself to be serviced in in similar fashion in the Oval Office, Bill D. Maybe they didn't want to "bring up" that comparison. :>)

Perhaps Turkeys have better communication skills than we've given them credit for. I figure that word got around over the past 8 years about what they had to do to get a pardon. And of course the latest turkey just assumes this year's like all the rest...

Not so much a 'Wild Turkey' as a 'Jim Beam'.....

(You may need to know that a 'Jim Beam' has been used in the UK as a euphemism for a 'stiffy' as in wooden beam - to "get a wood on").

Due to the enormous response from the Mudcat, the closing date for the Grauniad's caption competition has been brought forward to Friday 23rd (tomorrow)... so, be like the turkey, get entering!

Quote: And, now that the competition has been running for a while, please, please, please, no more entries on the theme of "Gobble, gobble", "Monica Lewinsky's pet" or Whitehouse interns ...
