I saw an article about this in this morning's paper. They field some very strange questions every year, like "Is it OK to put the turkey in the bathtub with the kids?"

Very weird.

>in the bathtub

Presumably to defrost it, or so I'd imagine.

It's interesting that you say that "Butterball" is a stronger brand for turkey than for butter. Having grown up in the pre-free-range days with Butterball as the pre-eminent brand of gobblers, the name is so associated for me with turkeys that I would find it startling to see it used in any other context. Thus the power of endlessly repeated TV commercials.
