There once was a turkey named Arthur, now you see Arthur was a very different turkey, because he lived in Alaska. It seems that he liked the winter, not because he did not want to be someone’s Thanksgiving meal, in fact he never even heard of Thanksgiving!
One day Arthur was walking to the store, when he saw a bunch of people chasing after him! He followed his gutt, and suprisingly didn’t run! He held up his feathery wing and said in his calmest voice he could have, “Um…..hello, my name is Arthur, and I’m pondering why you are chasing me?!”.
They all took one look at each other, a very strange look, almost if they were about to say, “What!?”. One man stepped up, a very tall man he was, he spoke in a very heavy tone and said, “Well, have you ever heard of Thanksgiving?”. Arthur gave a shake of his head which wobbled like a plane propeller. One boy stepped up and said, “Oh brother!”. And after that the boy took the turkey by the wing, and they went on a walk together and he told him all about Thanksgiving. After hearing the story Arthur looked at the boy with his eyes popping! Then he said, “Now I know why my ancestors settled HERE! Gee I thought the whale was at the top of the food chain here, but I guess time has changed.”
The boy looked at Arthur and said, “Don’t worry I have an idea! We will go to the Mayor and have him declare you “Ambassador Bird of Alaska!” And that will give you imunity from everyones Thanksgiving table!”
Then Arthur and the boy went to the Mayor’s office and explained their story, the Mayor was very sympathetic, so he granted their request. Arthur was thrilled, but he had to make sure everyone knew, but he also wanted everyone to be happy. He said to the boy, ” You have been a lifesaver, but I need one more favor.” The boy shook his head in agreement.
A large crowd appeared in front of the store. There in the window was a big sign that read, “The Mayor has declared Arthur the turkey to be ambassador of Alaska”. Underneath the sign stood Arthur with the help of the boy, thanking the people and saying, “I have something for everyones Thanksgiving table…Baked Alaska!” The people cheered and this was the best Alaskan Thanksgiving ever!
