Liquor companies are all about publicity stunts, but rarely do they involve a live turkey, the president of the United States, and a proposal for job-creation. We're giving Wild Turkey props for their "Give 'Em The Bird" campaign. Each year, the president pardons one lucky turkey, sparing him from ending up on the table for thanksgiving dinner. The turkeys usually go on to live out their lives on Mount Vernon, and a few have served as the grand marshal in Disney's Thanksgiving Day parade.
Well, this year, the spirit label is offering the gobbler a full-time job (after all, job-creation is one of the president's signature accomplishments. After he's done at the White House, the turkey has the chance to become the "spokesbird" at the distillery in central Kentucky, which is pretty much the best job that an animal with a brain the size of a pea could expect.
We are doubtful that the president will actually take the brand up on their offers, as Republicans in congress would likely cry fowl. Wokka wokka.
