“As God Is My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fly”

This is one of my favorite scenes from the BEST sitcom ever aired, WKRP In Cincinnati. This scene is from the 1978 pilot-season Thanksgiving-themed episode, “Turkeys Away” and the first time I watched Mr. Carlson utter those famous words, I almost fell off the couch laughing. I still love it to this day.

If you have the time, you can see almost the entire episode on YouTube, or better yet, get the first season DVD from Amazon.com. Be aware though, that if you were a fan of the music from the series, you may hear some different songs on the DVD due to copyright issues.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
