November 22, 2007

Happy Thanksgiving!!! (if i knew how to make this bigger and more exciting i would have made it that way! if anyone can help please leave a comment!)

on this Thanksgiving 2007 i leave you with Big Tom...

Big Tom is also known as the World's Largest Turkey and is located in Frazee City, Minnesota. Here is an excerpt from the Frazee City website:

The new statue is over 20 feet tall and bronze in color. (The origonal was 16 feet tall.) Including the tail, the width of the big turkey is 17 feet. Weighing in at over 5,000 pounds, 'Big Tom' has just over 1,000 pounds of steel reinforing its body. The legs were made a little shorter and stouter than a normal turkey to better handle the weight. There are an estimated 3,000 to 4,000 fiberglass feathers on 'Big Tom' which took D.W.O. Fiberglass Company over 2000 hours to complete.

Again Happy Thanksgiving you all! Thanks for reading!
