There has been a mix up in the annual presidential pardoning of a Thanksgiving turkey, as a White House aide unwittingly pardoned Turkey the country instead of an actual turkey.
It is, as yet, unclear what exactly Turkey has been pardoned of, but a White House spokesman commented, 'Take your pick'. It seems that the aide was in a rush as their mom was picking them up at the back gates at four.
Suggestion that the White House is recruiting increasingly young aides who are being given disproportionately responsibilities have been denied. Assistant Press Secretary 'Britnee' added; 'Beiber rocks. Wooo!'.
A representative of the Turkish embassy was unavailable for comment, but the turkey that was meant to have been pardoned by the President was said to be 'looking nervous'.
