If turkey can be considered an explosive, it seems that this warning should be coming from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, but I digress. The Department of Homeland Security is warning grateful eaters that their turkey might just explode on Thanksgiving Day if proper safety measures aren't taken to avoid the situation.

Hi, I'm Janet Napolitano, and I'm here to warn you about....exploding turkeys.

 

 

So the question is: What's worse? Burning your house down? Or not being able to eat turkey for Thanksgiving dinner? For safety's sake, I suggest using an oven rather than a deep fryer.... just kidding, we all know fried turkey is just too darn good.
