Talking Turkey

| Boca Raton, FL, USA | Learning | September 21, 2013

Professor: “Can anyone tell me what the national bird is?”

Student #1: “The bald eagle.”

Professor: “That’s right! Benjamin Franklin actually wanted the national bird to be the turkey. But the ultimate decision was up to Charles Thomson, and he didn’t think the American people would go for a turkey.”

Student #2: “Really? I think people would’ve gobbled it up!”
