Thanksgiving is just around the corner – and the turkeys are revolting.

The star of the show – for the carnivorous Thanksgiving diners – will be the turkey. In fact, according to Mental Floss, the average American eats around 7kg of turkey per year, and you can bet that most of that is split between Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

So, naturally, the turkeys aren’t too happy with your Thanksgiving plans. And, let’s face it, these giant birds are basically tiny velociraptors. We really shouldn’t be messing with them.

They hate the media.

They even hate sports!

So, if you see a suspicious turkey hanging around this Thanksgiving…

The revolt is upon us.
