Barack Obama pardons Popcorn the turkey for Thanksgiving


The presidential turkey pardon is an interesting White House tradition.
It wasn't until the first Thanksgiving of President George H.W. Bush, in 1989, that a turkey was officially pardoned for the first time. Each year since the President has formally pardoned a turkey and spares it from ending up on the Thanksgiving table. Since 2005, the turkeys have been flown to Disneyland.


Ebbene si, come vi ho raccontato oggi in classe, il tacchino che viene regalato al Presidente degli Stati Uniti viene graziato e, invece di finire arrosto col ripieno, potrà morire di vecchiaia.

Ecco il tweet originale di Obama che un'ora fa ha graziato Popcorn. State tranquilli, ragazzi, nemmeno Caramel farà una brutta fine...
