1. WKRP In Cincinnati – Turkeys Away!
“As God as my witness, i thought turkeys could fly.”
All the way back on October 30th, 1978, WKRP In Cincinnati, a show about a family run rock music radio station, aired a classic episode called “Turkeys Away.” the plot of the episode was that Mr. Carlson, the owner, feels a little useless after the change over to a new format rock & roll music radio station. He decides to create a big Thanksgiving Day promotion. He rents a helicopter and has a banner attached to it that says, “Happy Thanksgiving From WKRP” and then drops live turkeys from the helicopter to give them away to happy families… not knowing that Turkeys can’t fly.

3. Alice’s Restaurant (Illustrated Version)
Warning: This was recorded in 1967 and has some foul language and concepts in it, but we wanted to include this in our list as it has been making it’s rounds on Twitter.
“Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” is a musical monologue by singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie released on his 1967 album Alice’s Restaurant. The song is one of Guthrie’s most prominent works, based on a true incident in his life that began on Thanksgiving Day 1965, and which inspired a 1969 movie of the same name. Apart from the chorus which begins and ends it, the “song” is in fact a spoken monologue, with ragtime guitar backing.
Though the song’s official title, as printed on the album, is “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” (pronounced “mass-a-cree”), Guthrie states in the opening line of the song that “This song’s called ‘Alice’s Restaurant'” and that “‘Alice’s Restaurant’… is just the name of the song;” as such, the shortened title is the one most commonly used for the song today.
In an interview for All Things Considered, Guthrie said the song points out that any American citizen who was convicted of a crime, no matter how minor (in his case, it was littering), could avoid being conscripted to fight in the Vietnam War.” (Source: Wikipedia)
