More information that is at once pointless and annoying.
I am totally into turkey, the food, not the country, although I do have a Turkey t shirt but I bought it coz I like the food.
Anyhow, I like it so much that I am a bit of a turkeyologist and I will share this with you via Economist.com. Turkeys are, like the rest of Americans, getting bigger. The average American bird was 11 pounds in 1960; in 2008 it was 28 pounds. That is an increase of 64 per cent.
In the same time frame the average American man increased his average weight by 28 pounds.
I have to think that both models apply here in Canada.
