Turkey are such beautiful birds.
I thought the term "pardon" applies to people who are forgiven for their illegal deeds. The turkeys obviously haven't done anything wrong, and the use of the term makes the presidents sound magnanimous. (Most people would say that they are not). Ditto the term "reprieve".
Good point yskat and yes they are Mary!
Perhaps one shd ask for "pardon" if one is partaking of the turkey & thus causing its death ;)I better not start or someone will quote from Genesis ;(
