See the World’s Largest Turkey (VIDEO w/bonus scene)

They rebuilt it...some say better than ever! And today, you, too, can travel to Frazee and discover what I did. The miracle of the turkey. But don't stop there...check out the playground. I did and found a toy that I never had as a child (maybe the coolest toy on the playground). PLUS, check out the video and you'll find a bonus scene (for adults only...due to totally gross restroom discussion!
And off course...the pictures!
