1. It’s November, which means it’s time for the president to “pardon” a handpicked turkey, saving the bird from ending up on somebody’s dinner table come Thanksgiving.
2. That turkey gets to spend the rest of its life roaming free on a farm, while its feathered brethren…uhh…usually die.
This is Cobbler, the turkey whom President Obama pardoned in 2012. As of 2013, 23 turkeys have been pardoned, and President Obama is preparing to save one more.
