“What did the turkey say before it was roasted?”/“Boy! I’m stuffed!”

A Thanksgiving turkey riddle is:
 
Q: What did the turkey say before it was roasted?
A: “Boy! I’m stuffed!”

   
The joke has been cited in print since at least 1973. “Who doesn’t eat on Thanksgiving?”/“A turkey because it is always stuffed” and “Why didn’t the teddy bear eat dessert?”/“Because he was stuffed” are similar “stuffed” riddles.
