"How Does the Turkey Get Dead?"

Today in the car on the way home from his preschool Thanksgiving Feast my four-year-old asked me, "How does the turkey get dead?"

For some reason this struck me as hilarious. Generally I'm not one to keep the truth from my kids, although I might soften the blow a little on some things. However, there really isn't any nice way to say that the turkey gets his head chopped off! So, that is what I told him.
How's that for a Thanksgiving-spirit killer?!

Tell him the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus killed it.

At least you didn't say, they chop off it's head and then in runs around spurting blood and headless until it dies. That would have been rough.
