Butterball hot line horror stories (Turkey time)
NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Workers at Butterball's turkey-tips hot line are used to oddball situations:
--The woman who cleaned out her turkey with a scrub brush and asked if that was OK to do. (You don't need to do that.)
--People who thaw a turkey in the bathtub while washing their kids. (Don't do that, either.)
--A man looking for a quick way to cook his turkey who put it in the oven on the cleaning cycle. (Also not advisable.)

Anyone else recall the 'West Wing' episode in which Martin Sheen, playing the POTUS, called a turkey hotline a day or so before Thanksgiving to settle a debate he was having with the First Lady over how to cook their turkey? He kept getting hung up on by operators who thought he was someone trying to sound like the president. He finally disguised his voice- very funny.

I am hoping someone will post the WKRP - "As God as my witness I thought turkeys could fly"
I coulda used the turkey hotline for my first bird. Didn't know you were suppose to check both ends. Had nicely steamed gizzards tho. LOL Thank goodness they were in wax paper not plastic.
