I work at a newspaper, and I drew this for a column featuring a quaint and folksy account of the turkey the publishers' father brought home during the Great Depression. They tried to fatten it up for Thanksgiving, it died well before. Earlier this year we ran two separate columns with large color photographs asking readers to identify the species of a dead bird found lying on the ground. Seems to be a theme.
There were a couple less-depressing drawings presented, this is the one that will see print. Hooray!
