Which turkey will Obama pardon - Mac or Cheese?
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey, but which of two gobblers will get the presidential pass?
Will it be Mac? Or is it Cheese?
The White House was running an online contest until Wednesday afternoon to let the public decide which of the two nearly 50-pound birds from an Ohio farm will be named the National Thanksgiving Turkey. Unlike thousands of other turkeys across the country this week, the winner of this competition will be spared from the inside of an oven or deep fryer.
The tradition actually is for both turkeys to be spared.
After the presidential pardon is issued, the birds will be sent to a Northern Virginia turkey farm to live out the rest of their days.
