That’s just what the turkeys want you to believe. The cat was a sacrifice. This was their orgiastic dance of worship to their obscene, alien gods. Ia! Ia!

Yet More 101 Uses for a Dead Cat, #37: Turkey hypnotiser!


What is your Band Name, Rapper Name, Album Name

Two questions: first, how do they break themselves of the pattern?

Second, how do I become a turkey expert? Eating a lot of it isn’t working for me.


#5

Those turkeys have just figured out the traditional method for trapping a cat.


#6

They don’t.

That’s the dark side of turkey reality.


#7

Man turkeys are DUMB. If you want to resurrect the cat you have to walk backwards. Any first year necromancer knows this.


#8

Why would they want to resurrect it? They were making sure it was dead.


#9

Is this a metaphor for the Trump administration?


#10


#11

So it’s kinda like a ant death spiral.


#12

i’m pretty sure it’s an undocumented sign of the end times.


#13

Yet another poorly implemented WHILE loop. :rolling_eyes:


#14

Sometimes they don’t until they collapse of exhaustion, leading to a form of ecological collapse in which a dead cat is surrounded by a ring of dead turkeys surrounded by a ring of dead squirrels surrounded by a ring of dead flamingoes and so forth.


#15

Obligatory XKCD:


#16

Keep in mind that all of these turkeys are hens. I don’t see a single beard among them.
As an avid wild eastern turkey hunter, I’ve seen toms display more dominant behaviour toward dead or dying predators. Any sign of weakness and a dominant tom will exploit it.

I doubt this kind of pattern would be possible with male turkeys.


#17

Just when I think that “There’s an XKCD for everything” is hyperbole…


#18

They’re Schrödinger Turkeys…the cat is both alive and dead


#19

“Turkey cat funeral” is just so … dada.


#20

Unless you’re programming a turkey trap.

While (cat == DEAD)
{
walk_in_circle();
