Odd Butterball Hotline Questions
This year's Thanksgiving is the latest it can be (November 28th) and last year was the earliest it can be (November 22nd). Next year, Thanksgiving will fall on November 26th. Thanksgiving may still be several weeks away but the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line is open now through December 24th.
If this is your year to cook the turkey, you can talk to the experts with your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving turkey questions. You can call the Butterball Hotline at 800-BUTTERBALL (288-8372) or text them at (844) 877-3456.
Maybe you're afraid that you have a dumb question. You've heard the saying "There's no such thing as a stupid question" so feel free to ask (or text) away because it can't be worse than these:
One lady asked: Is the turkey carcass safe to use as a little Santa sled for the kids to play with? I don't know the answer to that but I do know it makes a great party hat.
Another woman asked: How do you thaw a fresh turkey? Fresh turkeys aren't frozen, and therefore don't have to be thawed.
One person asked: How long will it take to roast the turkey? When they were asked how big is the turkey, the response was "I don't know, it's still running around the back yard." They forgot to also say "and I can't make it stand still long enough on the scale."
This is my personal favorite:
This guy called from the 14th tee to ask questions about how to cook his turkey. Think about this, he got out of the house before Thanksgiving and he got to golf (double bonus). If the wife is gonna be mad at you, ya might as well be golfing.
Here's one for the ladies:
If you call the Butterball Hotline, a man might be picking up the phone to answer your question. I don't know but to me, that's like having a man give me a massage.....It may work but it doesn't feel right.
