    Butterball warns of a turkey shortage!

    If you're planning on serving your family a fresh turkey this Thanksgiving, you may be hard pressed to find one available at your local supermarket.

    Less than two weeks before the year's greatest food holiday, Butterball, the nation's largest producer of turkeys, is warning of a shortage of birds.

    Butterball announced that it will be shipping out half as many large, fresh never-frozen turkeys to retailers this year. The company says many of its birds had trouble gaining weight during the production process. And though the cause of the problem remains a mystery, food distributors say their orders for turkeys 16 pounds and bigger have been slashed in half. Sixteen pounds is the national average for Thanksgiving holiday turkeys making this shortage a particularly concerning problem.

    This might not seem like a big deal to some but, I can think of a several dozen housewives/cooks who might be having a panic attack about now.

    Surely, I can't be the only one who read the first few words of the title to this thread and figured it was about Chris Christie warning us about Tayyip Erdoğan , can I?

    Prices just doubled, I'm sure.

    Considering I have a flock, actually two, of wild turkeys that meander through my yard on any given day, I may be able to get mine at cut rate prices.

    I just bought 36 turkeys.

    If they go up half as much as .22lr it'll be a great Christmas.

    Damnit! I hate it when I have to go out and shoot my own turkey.

    I should invite you over, some time. You sure wouldn't have to go very far.

    I have a flock of up to 15 that visits regularly.

    In related news, the Obama administration warns that they are running out of subsidized exchange health insurance plans. Better shop early folks!!
