Here’s a great practical joke to play this Thanksgiving. This story came via email, I do not know if its real or urban legend. It is very do-able though!
One year at Thanksgiving my mom went to her sister’s house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible her sister is, my mom decided to play a trick.
She told my aunt that she needed something from the store. When my aunt left, mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. she then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.
When it was time for dinner, my aunt pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird. With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, “Susan, you’ve cooked a pregnant bird!”
At the reality of this horrifying news, my aunt started to cry. It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!
