*Gasp* Oh no! Awwww...

"Church to hold moment of silence for turkey as model member of congregation":

"Taking time to remember a wild turkey may seem strange, but a church will hold a moment of silence this Sunday for what the pastor called a model member of his congregation. The Rev. James Huff, pastor of Lambs United Methodist Church, said the turkey regularly attended Sunday services and greeted people as they arrived.

The turkey died last week after it was hit by a car on a road near the St. Clair County church, area residents said.

Douglas Bishop, the church's music director, said congregation members noticed the bird wasn't there last Sunday. The fowl never missed a service, he said."

Well? All you smarty-pantses that laugh at my wild turkeys? See? I'm not the only one who loves them.
