Er... Pam Gellar Wants to Boycott Butterball Turkeys Because They Are Halal.

How did I miss this? Pamela Gellar has called for a boycott of Butterball turkeys because they are certified halal, which means we are all going to become terrorists if we eat one. Or something.


I'll let Tbogg take it from here:

[Butterball spokesperson]Wendy Howze is, like, the worst terrorist ever. Without even having Marc Theissen waterboard her, she is admitting that Butterball turkeys are tryptophan-laden IED’s that use Pop-Up Turkey Timers as fuses and then explode getting Islam all over the cranberries and stuffing and even the All-American Apple Pie (4th Thursday of November! Never forget!). But wait. What is a halal turkey? Does Butterball single out the turkeys that face Mecca several times a day? Ones that are dark meat only? No, it is much more complicated than that:

Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus, and the jugular vein, and letting the blood drain out while saying “Bismillah allahu akbar” — in the name of Allah the greatest.

Tbogg had exactly the same thought I did when I read that:

So basically Muslim death turkeys are the end result of ritual turkey throat slitting that occurs while someone stands nearby spouting gibberish, which confirms what we have suspected for some time: Sarah Palin is a Muslim sleeper cell spy.
