Turkeys' Revenge

Bernard Matthews, founder of the huge company best-known for poultry farming and turkey products, has died. A multi-millionaire, much of his wealth came from such nutritious items as turkey twizzlers, and mechanically-recovered turkey-dinosaur-nuggets. His factories were severely criticised as havens for scavenging birds and rats, their turkey sheds filthy and linked with avian flu.

By an extraordinary quirk of fate, Matthews died on 25 November - in the United States this year, the date on which Thanksgiving fell.

Delicious irony.
