Pondering the fowl deeds in Hamlet

Turkey reader in Harvard Square

Katherine Ferguson watched one of Harvard Square's more feathered residents contemplating a selection at the Harvard Book Store.

Compare to the had-enough-of-your-crap turkey Tracey Strauss spotted elsewhere in Cambridge today:

If it assume my noble father

If it assume my noble father’s person,
I’ll gobble to it, though Hell itself should gape
And bid me hold my peace. I pray you all,
If you have hitherto concealed this sight,
Let it be tenable in your silence still.
And whatsoever else shall hap tonight,
Give it an understanding, but no tongue.
I will requite your loves. So fare you well.
Upon the platform, ’twixt eleven and twelve,
I’ll visit you.
Your loves, as mine to you. Farewell.
My father’s spirit in wings. All is not well.
I doubt some fowl play. Would the night were come!
Till then perch still, my soul. Fowl deeds will rise,
Though all the earth o'erwhelm them, to tom's eyes.

One of the best "Chicken/Road' jokes I've come across. Brilliant!

(Is it possible to 'share' this? Thanks!)

How do I sneak in?

I love the turkey's deep focus on Hamlet, but in a way I wish it would move down and consider NW, by Zadie Smith, because I know the author would love the picture. I wonder if turkeys have made it to northwest London yet. They would fit right in.

Thanksgiving is coming up in a few weeks. Perhaps a lot of these birds could go missing? I know it's illegal to harm them, but just maybe........

Re Turkey day

Don't be too quick to wish them dead, even when they're a bit inconvenient. They eat pests like ticks and slugs. More turkeys equals less Lyme Disease, among other nasties.

My cousin has at least 30 turkeys in his garden every fall and winter, and not only do they do no harm, that garden is glorious. -- She who supports the Turkey Liberation Front
