This is not good news.

Over 2000 turkeys in the UK have died from Bird Flu. (The worst strain that can be passed to humans and is fatal)
This is not good for several reasons.
It took over 1000 birds to die before these birds were checked for the flu. How many have entered the food chain?
It means that if these birds were not being monitored for the disease then it's likely that most of the flock in the UK haven't been.

I've just eaten a Turkey curry!

Have a beer on me.

Could be one reason why you Brits don't celebrate Thanksgiving...just kidding with you.

Although, technically, the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated by Brits...GOTCHA!!

I bet your next thread will have something to do with fireworks factories going up in smoke just prior to your 4th of July celebrations!!!

...I really like history...
