FOWL PLAY; EVENTS FOR CREATIVE TYPES


Talking turkey

The Business reports on turkey troubles in the UK. Unilever intends to start using DRUMSTERS as a mark for turkey products.

  1. When I want to reward my cats for particularly good behaviour turkey drumsticks are the answer. One drumstick feeds three cats for three days. Two as raw meat and the third from the stewed bone. They are remarkably inexpensive at less than a pound each.

  2. I get fed turkey drumsticks too. Don't think it's for good behaviour though.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
