Tom the Turkey is a 12-pound gobbler thats been living in his owners freezer for nearly two decades.
Every year, Toms dad, Adam Yahre, throws the clucker a bird-brained birthday party, and this Saturday (Dec. 6), Tom turns 18 and will finally fly the coop.
Yahre says, Were throwing him a graduation party, so hell be in cap and gown. Hes thinking of going into the military, the Air Force obviously, so hell get into shape.
According to Yahre, Tom has been a very rebellious teen bird, failing school, drinking heavily, and sneaking chicks into his freezer at night.
Yahre laments, The problem is he thinks hes too cool. The fact that hes frozen might have something to do with it. We tried to punish him by putting him in the oven, but we just couldnt. We love him too much.
Now that Tom is officially an adult, Yahre hopes hell get his act together, enroll at Purdue University, and ruffle less feathers.
