Should I Bone My Turkey or Spoon It?
Employees at the Butterball turkey-tips hotline get some pretty strange calls over the Thanksgiving holiday.
In recent years there have been calls from a man who put a turkey in a dryer to heat it up, a family who put a turkey in a bathtub while washing their kids and a woman who cleaned her turkey with a scrub brush.
Butterball L.L.C. puts on Butterball University as a form of training for hotline newcomers who will be forced to answer up to 12,000 help calls on Thanksgiving Day alone.
The hotline, which you can reach at (800) 288-8372, is open throughout November and December for the holiday season.
