Happy TURKEY Day, JOE!

Here's a holiday-themed cautionary tale with the message: "Be careful what you wish for!"

I can't imagine that some poor child back in the day didn't lose sleep over this one...

  1. Okay I am not sure what is more disturbing: The postman with the ticking bomb in his sack or the turkey leg bone on Joe's grave! LOL

  2. Hm. I didn't even notice the ticking bomb!! That's so bizarre. Was that foreshadowing what awaited Joe, or was there some other meaning??
    Curiouser and curiouser...

    And why wasn't the turkey leg bone buried with the rest of his his skeleton? The more I think about this story, the more unsettling it becomes.

  3. LOL...that's funny I didn't even think as to why the leg would be on top of the grave instead of in it with the rest of him...maybe it was a Thanksgiving Turkey leg left over that wasn't eaten until Joe was burried...shivers.
