'As God as my witness...': Start your Thanksgiving with the infamous 'WKRP in Cincinnati' turkey drop
I don't have many Thanksgiving traditions. One involves a bottle of Pappy I partake in once a year. I sit on the porch with bourbon and a cigar and reflect on the things for which I am most thankful. Mostly bourbon. And content. Sweet, sweet content. I drink my way through whatever lame football matchups are on and wonder what kind of a God would force his children to sit through Joe Buck talking. At some point, I eat. This year I'll be skipping the Thanksgiving Turkey and instead be making the Thanksgiving Waygu Tri-Tip, smoked over mesquite wood. Try not to be jealous while pretending Aunt Bertha's turkey isn't dry AF.
But the day is always started with reliving the infamous WKRP in Cincinnati Turkey Drop of 1978. Since you and I both know you were going to look for this video, too:
They sent Les Nessman to a strip mall, so Herb and Mr. Carlson could throw turkeys out of a helicopter. In 2021, PETA would be involved. MSNBC would claim this was white supremacy. And Les, instead of almost being killed by a man and his two children, would be yelled at for not wearing a mask.
Aaaand the money quote:
As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
Quite frankly, that was the greatest marketing stunt this side of giving away a hand-etched mug with every annual subscription to the world's greatest political comedy show.
