“I consider myself a moral person. That’s why I only eat turkeys that have exhausted appeals”

The president of the United States traditionally pardons one turkey just before Thanksgiving. American television host and comedian Conan O’Brien posted this joke on Twitter on November 26, 2013:

“I consider myself a moral person. That’s why I only eat turkeys that have exhausted the appeals process.”


Wikipedia: Thanksgiving National Turkey Presentation
The National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation is a ceremony that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving. The president of the United States is presented with a live domestic turkey by the National Turkey Federation (NTF), usually males of the Broad Breasted White variety. (...) During the Presidency of George H. W. Bush, it became a tradition (since carried on by all of Bush’s successors) for the president to issue a ceremonial “pardon” to the turkey.
