Good economic news for everybody today, as a recession-proof sector in our overall economy has been discovered. What sector is that? The sector where you straight up shove animals in a woodchipper in the proximity of Sarah Palin and a teevee camera, that's what!
Remember the unfortunate turkey that was being slaughtered as a local Alaska TV station interviewed Governor Sarah Palin? It's now been sold on eBay for $225 .
The "historic" turkey was bestowed to the one lone bidder by Triple D Farm in Palmer, Alaska, where Palin had pardoned another lucky turkey earlier that day. After the ceremony, she discussed her plans for the Thanksgiving holiday while the unlucky turkey met its grim fate.
Unlike that time Palin tried to sell a plane on eBay, fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the local Department of Veteran's Affairs.
