THE BIRDS, THE HORROR...

SALTSPRING ISLAND, British Columbia – "Watch out for the turkeys," Miguel warns. They've escaped the pen in Ruckle Provincial Park and swarm around us.

"They're tur-keys," I backchat. "I've dove with sharks, hiked beside bears. What's a turkey gonna do?"

Answer: give my wise-@ss a wedgie while I squat down to take close-up gobbler-cam photos.

Really.

The hen nabs the plastic logo on the back of my yoga trousers and yanks. Deliberate as any swirlie, this action is pure foul play...

  1. Them Canadian turkeys are dangerous. And so are their fowl.

  3. Erm, do I need to add some smiley emoticon there to prevent unironic "real Americans" from administering beat-downs?

    Oh, wait, Joe Six Pack's on side with the Republican agenda. Never mind.
