Wandering Monster

 A savage wild turkey decided to visit my apartment building in Milwaukee on Friday:

I defended my demesne, driving the terrible beast away:  

The formidable creature then proceeded to terrorize the neighbourhood:


  1. You're lucky. In BC they normally appear in groups of 2d6, led by a 2HD turkey. Honestly, they're not that aggressive, but they are big, and there are more of them around every year. I think of dinosaurs every time I see one.

    1. "I think of dinosaurs every time I see one."


  2. When a wild turkey visits my home, typically it has come in a bottle of 101 proof.

    1. I generally prefer that kind of wild turkey visit!

  3. Apologies to Fish and Marillion:

    "I was flicking through the channels on the TV
    On a Sunday in Milwaukee in the rain
    Trying to piece together conversations
    Trying to find out where to lay the blame

    But when it comes right down to it there's no use trying to pretend
    For when it gets right down to it there's no one here that's left to blame
    Blame it on me, you can blame it on me
    We're just sugar-turkeys in the rain"
