Thanksgiving bizarr!

Das Erntedankfest ist für Truthähne ein schlimmer Brauch, an diesen skurrilen Bildern kann man trotzdem Spass haben.

(Original Caption) The pretty buccaneer is Flo Bondi, who was Miss Ohio of 1949, but it makes little difference to the despondent turkey whether the ax is applied by a Venus or a Virago. The effect on its neck is the same. Flo is publicizing Thanksgiving and, incidentally, a motion picture called The Pirates of Capri.

(Original Caption) Pass the Turkey. John Sweatlock, of Ramsey, New Jersey, a Valley Forge Military Academy end, reaches to grab a roasted turkey tossed to him in jest during football practice on the Wayne, Pa., campus. "Well, afterall," the passer said "a pigskin doesn't seem appropriate for Thanksgiving Day."

(Original Caption) 11/10/1950-Hollywood, California- Wearing a costume that is half-Puritan, half-chorine, pretty Marilyn Monroe seems to have little desire to hunt turkey after finding this gobbler, still "stumping" long after Election Day. Currently seen in "All About Eve," this movie starlet seems just as frightened by the gun as the bird is.
