Since my older sister let the cat (or turkey) out of the bag, I suppose I should go on the record with my official version of “The Turkey Incident.” Technically, this might qualify as a Stupid Human Trick, but for now, I’ll leave it here.

This picture captures much of the absurdity I saw while I was driving around downtown Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia. I have no idea where this vehicle was going, but I’m pretty sure I saw Jethrow in the driver’s seat.
