Thanksgiving Day in the US is normally a time for forgiving and forgetting and Obama, shining beacon of forgiveness that he is, has pardoned Turkey!
This news spread round the world like wildfire and Istanbul reacted swiftly to the news.
Turkey's President sent an urgent message to the States asking "what the fuck have we done now, murdered Kurds, tried to enter the ECC, sent more of our countrymen to Germany to annoy the NSPD, extreme right?"
The whole thing exploded into a diplomatic crisis with Turkey asking the US why have they been pardoned!
Obviously on Thanksgiving Day in the US nobody works including Obama so a special envoy was sent disturbing Obama and his family enjoying their "Turkey" dinner.
"What the f**k is it now" Obama screamed down the corridors of the White House, "a man can't even eat his Turkey on Thanksgiving day in peace!"
After being informed about the crisis with the Turks, he realised what the problem was, Obama had pardoned a real TURKEY and the TURKEY is now living the rest of his life in Disneyland.
Obama promptly informed the Turkish President about the slight misunderstanding and wished him a happy Thanksgiving Day, told him to keep his filthy Turkish hands off of the Kurds and don't upset my Deutsche friends!
