Turkeys around the country breathed a sigh of relief as the deadline for getting frozen turkeys into the store passed. The day, known by turkeys as "drop dead day" is before Thanksgiving, so the still-living turkeys mourn their fallen comrades but rejoice that they have a few more months to live.
"It's the most wonderful day of the year," said Tom Turkey, a turkey from Manti, Utah. "We all get together and gobble. It's far better than being on the table and getting gobbled all up."
