Headlining This Year’s Frozen Turkey Drop

Richard Sanders as Newsman Les Nessman in the famous turkey drop episode of WKRP in Cincinnati
"Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this!"

It's widely known that newsmen love loathe holidays, and this year, vehicular mayhem set up a Thanksgiving report most foul for one reporter at the L.A. Times:

A big rig packed with 23,000 pounds of frozen turkeys was headed for a Northern California Costco about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when it overturned on an Interstate 680 exit ramp in San Ramon.

The southbound tractor-trailer rolled over and sent the birds flying, if ever so briefly, before they all crashed and fuel spilled onto the Alcosta Boulevard offramp in San Ramon, east of Oakland.

Oh, for shame, Mr. Joseph Serna. But you're forgiven since you remind us of this, condensed down to the essential thirty seconds of glory from WKRP in Cincinnati.
