On this day, commonly known as Thanksgiving Day in the U.S.A., the Much Honored Bock McMillan, laird of Southern Charm, prince of Cascade Falls, Sovereign Ruler of the Commonwealth of Southern Enchantment and Outer Territories, UN appointed Protector of the Mount Whitney sim in SecondLife and pretender to the throne of Macedonia and dependent territories, decided to take action against the barbaric and ghastly tradition of eating millions of turkeys to celebrate the holiday.
The laird pardoned all turkeys within his realm or his protection and those who have sought sanctuary there or at the nation's embassies in the world.
The reason given for this universal amnesty of turkeys was "not - as some may assume - out of pity for the ugly, smelly and bad tasting creatures but more for the sake of the poor people who would otherwise stuff themselves with their vile and poisonous meat." (The laird has a well known phobia against any and all poultry meat.)
