The pro-football team had just finished its daily practice when a large turkey strutted onto the field.
While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and requested a tryout.

When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, “Your are terrific! Sign up for the season, and I’ll see to it that you get a huge signing bonus.”
“Forget the bonus,” the turkey said. “All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?”
