How tired are you of seeing this phrase, accompanied by a clip-art picture of a turkey, on Thanksgiving-related flyers?
Some examples from the web:
Does anyone know what is so bad about being a turkey, and why it is relevant to serving food, hunting, writing, and smoking? Is it that turkeys get killed? If so, why don’t people just say, “don’t get killed”?
Another question: Does anyone actually say, “Don’t be a turkey”? Or is it always written. I just can’t imagine it in verbal context. “Dude, you gonna come out tonight?” “Naw, I think I’m just going to stay home and read.” “Oh come on man, don’t be a turkey!”
