    ^^ I live a 10 minute drive from downtown Columbus, OH. We get the occasional wild turkey roaming the neighborhood, they have adapted very well.

    The turkeys around here walk down the middle of a main road, hold up traffic, and get all Italian puffy when you honk the horn at them as if they’re going to fight you.

    I chased one with my lawnmower a couple of weeks ago. They don’t give a chit.

    And we’re not talking 1...2...5....
    More like a dozen, strutting around, laughing that they arent in season.
    Where’s the KABOOM?!?! There’s supposed to be an Earth shattering KABOOM!!!

    ⬆️ ⬆️ Did you mean turkeys of the feathered variety, or just humanoid “turkeys”?! 😂

    Many years ago I was drivin' to work on MA Root Two, near the reservoir right at the intersection of Root Two with "128" (or, as the signage would have non-Yankees believe, I-95) in Lexington (barely). Traffic came to a halt on Rt. 2 as a family of geese waddled across the highway.

    Ironically, nigh on two decades later, I was workin' at a biopharma company just on the other side of that intersection. Our campus was (for lack of a better word) plagued by three or four tom turkeys who liked to strut around like they owned the place.

    Now, speaking of turkeys: I think these paisans might want to have a word with you...

    or the way back home, according to a very young Bruce Stringbean Springsteen:
    Well I jumped up, turned around, spit in the air, fell on the ground
    Asked him which was the way back home
    He said take a right at the light, keep goin' straight until night, and then boy, you're on your own

    Evidently those examples are the most rare, the information on their bases is etched into the metal and they are new old stock.

    Just because they ask that price doesn't mean they sell for that price.
    I get the rarity, but let's be honest. Plugging them in and running for any time at will diminish the price. I'm luck I know no one who has that kind of money to literally throw away.

    Last Axpona Western Electric was back in a big way and making the 300b again. Yes I know it's not the same, still it's a multitude of magnitude cheaper for day in and out use.
