    Thanksgiving tradition; the WKRP Turkey drop.

    I've noticed that every year for the past ten years or so, around Thanksgiving, I go on YouTube and look up the 3-minute video of the turkey drop scene on the show WKRP in Cincinnati.

    And I laugh out loud every year...



    I mentioned it to my coworkers and they had never seen it, or even heard of the show. Not surprising since none of them were born when the show was on the air.

    But, it was a fairly "progressive" show for it's time, so curious as to how many here have seen it.

    I recall watching that show back in the year ???? Don't recall that particular episode, but that show was always good for a laugh.

    Yep.
    But I ask.. How many today will take a minute to say with sincere heart, "Thank you God, my Creature, for permitting me to be born in a land where I will not yet be encarcelated for saying "Thank you God" on the Day of Thanksgiving.

    I'll bet spell check inserted "Creature" where you intended Creator. If so, count me in.

    He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

    WKRP in Cincinnati was my favorite when it was on. Years later, another show similar to it was also very funny. It was called News Radio, and it had the same quirky humor as the original. If you have an opportunity to watch it, I highly recommend it.

    <<<<< Marked safe from the WKRP turkey drop.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Just watched it again. It might be the only funny thing to happen in Cincinnati.
    The only thing I can remember that rivaled it was Carol Burnett "went with the wind" staircase scene and some episodes of married with children

    On “Our American Stories” a night or two ago this episode of WKRP was featured. Turns out that it was based on a real radio station promotion.

    Heard it played on the radio several times yesterday. It is as much a seasonal tradition at Thanksgiving as "A Christmas Story" is at Christmas.
