Subject: An inexperienced "city" chef
From: Anne Ward-Ryan

(Formerly a "blonde sister joke" but cleaned up as a gift to all my blonde friends)

Last year at Thanksgiving time, my mom went to my a very "city-slicker" friend's house for the traditional holiday feast. Knowing how gullible the friend is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told the friend that she needed something from the store and asked if the friend wouldn't mind going out to get it.

When the friend left the house, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the mixed stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey ... then re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back into the oven.

When it was time for dinner, the friend pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing.

When the serving spoon hit something, the friend reached in and pulled out the little bird.

With a look of total shock on the friend's face, my mother exclaimed, "You've cooked a pregnant bird!"

At the reality of this horrifying news, the friend started to cry hysterically.

It took her almost two hours to convince the friend that turkeys lay eggs!
