Thanksgiving turkeys

If you have a 15 pound turkey for Thanksgiving, you would still need 134 turkeys to equal one ton (2,000 pounds).

If you eat two pounds of turkey each Thanksgiving for 50 years, you would have eaten 100 pounds of turkey after 50 years. That is almost (seven) 15 pound turkeys eaten all by yourself.

If you weigh 120 pounds, it would take (eight) 15 pound turkeys to equal your weight.

If 10 million households buy a 15 pound turkey, that is 150 million pounds of turkey, or 75,000 tons of turkeys bought. If your car weighs 3,000 pounds, that is equal to 50,000 cars in weight.
