What happens to the turkey after it is pardoned by the President?

  • It goes to Disneyland correct

    There are only two times that the nation cares if you are going to Disneyland- if you just won the Super Bowl or if you are a turkey in which case, you just stared death in the eye and death blinked. Every year the turkey pardoned by the president is shipped off to the happiest place on earth where it lives out the rest of its rather brief life. Why brief? Because it was raised with the rest of its turkey buddies to be dinner so it usually gains health problems due to obesity and dies that year- just in time for the next pardoned turkey.
