A while back, I wrote about the full out assault by demonic flocks of turkeys on the good city of Boston. Now, I have personally witnessed the horror up close.
Last weekend, I was in Kendall Square, Boston, about a block away from the Kendall Square T station around noon. And what did I see, but a rather large turkey wandering around (no doubt it was an advance scout for the rampaging turkey hordes). It was rather skittish around people–although that might be part of the master plan to soften we humans up in preparation for the onslaught.
Seriously, this is an urban area. There are no greenways or corridors–at some point, the bird had to cross blocks of concrete and streets (there is the occasional ‘park’–a small patch of fenced-in playground), although there are some planters with shrubs.
This is where I saw it:
The arrow marks the location of the Evil One
There is some green, but it’s bounded by heavily traveled roads–that’s one quick turkey.
Or maybe it swam across the Charles River… That’s all we need: amphibious strike force turkeys.
How long before they start showing up on the Boston Common or in the Public Garden? Have they no decency?
