“Why did the turkey cross the table?"/"To get to the other sides.”

“Why did the chicken cross the road?"/"To get to the other side” is a classic riddle from the 19th century. A turkey version is:

Q: Why did the turkey cross the road/table?
A: To get to the other sides.


That is, the turkey wanted to get to the side dishes --cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and other sides. “To get to the other sides smile RT @JonathanLedee: I said, WHY DID THE TURKEY CROSS THE ROAD??!!” was posted on Twitter by David Souza on November 24, 2011. “Why did the turkey cross the road?
