as we were prepping and shopping for the Thanksgiving Day meal we hosted for 8 people this week, my wife and I got into an argument about what kind of turkey to buy. I've had Butterball for 37 straights years. they're so plump and juicy. why would you buy anything else, right?
well, my wife (who already convinced me that hormone-infused milk is why teenage girls look like they're fully grown adults) encouraged me to consider buying a hormone-free, steroid-free turkey this year.
so I'm standing in the checkout line with my 69-cent/lb. Butterball and I start thinking about Barry Bonds...
remember Barry? over the course of 20 years, all those 'roids increased his hat size from a 7 to a 14.
yeah, I paid a 425% premium for the $2.99/lb. free-range, hormone-free, steroid-free turkey.... and enjoyed every worry-free bite.
