The Politics of Dancing: "As God Is My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fly": "Cincinnati, OH--An advertising stunt dreamed up by a local Cincinnati radio station went terribly wrong when twenty live turkeys plummeted to their deaths after being dropped out of a helicopter under the misguided assumption that they would all just fly away.

'The turkeys were hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement,' stated Les Nessman, who reported the event live for station WKRP from the parking lot of the Pinedale Shopping Mall.

'It was just terrible. People started to panic and were running around the parking lot screaming. One of the turkeys even went right through the windshield of a parked car.'"
