    Inmates launch half-hour hunger strike about turkey diet

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Some Colorado prisoners are complaining their food is for the birds.

    Five straight turkey dinners prompted El Paso County jail inmates to go on a brief hunger strike.

    The inmates refused to eat Saturday, arguing that meals such as turkey chili mac, turkey a la king, turkey stew and turkey sausage were unnecessarily cruel.

    Sheriff's officials said Wednesday that the hunger strike lasted a half hour.

    "Turkey, turkey and more turkey is not a form of punishment," the sheriff's office said in a tongue-in-cheek prepared statement. "The inmates accepted this reasoning and gobbled up their dinner meal."

    The inmates had spaghetti for dinner Wednesday -- with turkey-based meat sauce.
