Apparently Pam Geller has decided that Islam is invading America one Butterball turkey at a time! (warning - clicking on this link will expose you directly to Ms. Geller's ravings. If there were 144 of her, we would have gross stupidity or is that a gross of stupidity?) This reminds me of when a bunch of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and their fellow travellers had a collective freak out back in the 1980s when they discovered that the U within O and capital K markings on many food products in the US signify kosher**. There was a lot of fringe and extremist types screaming and yelling and posting on primitive internet bulletin boards about the Zionist and/or Jewish conspiracy to take over America one snack cake at a time. Personally I'm a fan of a naturally basting fresh turkey, one of which I will be dry rubbing, stuffing with home made cornbread stuffing, and roasting tomorrow AM, then slicing after appropriate standing time and removal of said stuffing, bedding down in its own juices, and then reheating it in them as I roast the asparagus and bake the sweet potatoes before serving, but I might have to go buy a Butterball just because it will give Ms. Gellers the vapors! (I saw this at multiple places, but I guess the hat tip should go to Tbogg - just for the snark!).
A Happy and Healthy (and for those travelling) Safe Thanksgiving to all here at SST and to our gracious host!

** The U within an O is the certification mark, or heksha, of the Oscherwitz Union, while the capital K is the certification mark for kosher. Either of these on a packaged food item means that it is certified kosher.
