t’s Thanksgiving today, and if you’re one of those who want to co-opt this cultural celebration of Americanness, don’t go out looking for a turkey. If you do, chances are that you’ll receive the frozen carcass of a bird that was slaughtered a thousand miles away, a couple of months ago, and shipped off to exotic lands, pumped up with roids. To say mass market poultry is one hundred percent steroid-free is to believe Sant Dr Baba Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim Ji Insan to be celibate. There’s enough growth hormones in these birds to give a baby six pack abs before it’s even learnt to say, “Bro, check out these abs”.

Considering the above, you’d be better served going to your local murgi-wala or “fresh chicken shop” and buying a recently deceased, fresh chicken to roast to perfection and celebrate Thanksgiving.
