SEEN IN SPOKANE: Turkeys (still alive)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 26, 2010 at 10:55 AM

From the “Near Nature, Near Awkward-Encounters-with-Humanity” file comes this interaction on Spokane’s South Hill this morning.

The soccer moms were trying to get to Rockwood Bakery. The turkeys were presumably trying to get the hell back to the wild.

It was such an awkward moment, we totes had to shoot it with our cutting edge smartphone, because the Internet teaches us that chronicling humanity’s quirks is the only thing technology is good for. We love the parallel confusion in the video, the women thinking, “Should I run? Should  I at least get off my cell phone?” The turkey in front thinking, “Should I peck this Bridgestone tire? Is there grain in there?”

Thirty seconds of subdued hilarity follow.
