It’s the evening before Thanksgiving, and the butcher is just locking up when a man begins pounding on the shop door.
“Please let me in,” the man yells desperately. “I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife will be devastated if I come home without one.”
Rolling his eyes, the butcher sighs, “Okay. Let me see what I have.” He checks the freezer and discovers that there is only one scrawny turkey left. He brings it out to show the man.
“That’s one is too skinny. What else you got?” says the man.
The butcher takes the bird back into the freezer, waits a few minutes, and brings the same turkey back out to show the man.
“Oh, no,” says the distraught husband, “That one doesn’t look any better. I had better get both of them!”
