Naming the Bird

Comic ID: #21

My kids always want to buck social norms...

A Holiday comic about naming the Thanksgiving Turkey. After all, you can't eat the bird if it doesn't have a name.

Why is the male Turkey called "Tom"?

If you weren't aware, the male turkey is called a "tom" or a gobbler. I have no idea as to exactly why this is (as to origin), but I do know from actual experience that they are a really dumb animal (we raised them when I was a kid). They can actually drown in a rain storm because of the location of their nostrils coupled with the fact that they are too stupid to come in out of the rain.
