Seriously, Wild Turkeys?

Okay, really. It's stories like this that give the midwest a bad name.

Postal Workers Attacked by Wild Turkeys

That's right, "postal workers attacked by wild turkeys." In Madison. Come on Wisconsin: you're bringing us all down here and making the midwest look like the uncivilized, uneducated part of the country that I'd like to think we're not. I move to have Minnesota and Illinois be called something other than the midwest.

Although, this article came from a Seattle news source. It was also under the "Nation/World" tab. Was this story honestly legitimate enough to be put under this heading next to oil spills and Iraqi death tolls? I'm going to go with "no" on this one. So, I guess I can feel a little better knowing the west coast has their embarrassing counterpart. Wisconsin, meet Washington.


  1. If only the postal workers had been attacked by bald eagles, it would be something to be proud of.

  2. i read your commment yeah you could just register for an account on imeem.com its free. Then just find the song you like and embed it to your blogger.

  3. Come on... wild turkeys ARE dangerous. Last time I saw one I luckily had my shotgun at hand, not to mention my prompt reaction avoided a mother and her 3 sons to be eaten alive by that monster. You know, they have a deadly fingernail with which they are able to tear you apart (no... wait.. that was Jurassic Park.. yikes!)

  4. FYI - We had a wild turkey running around outside of our school on Thursday. True story. When the student told the teacher (next door to me), the teacher honestly was going to send the kid to the nurse. She's like: "you're not okay, honey. wild turkeys?" Then, the custodian came along and backed up the student's story!
