TheFW shares "eight/8 wacky Presidential turkey pardon moments -- As holidays go, Thanksgiving sure has its share of odd traditions. Live parades with lip-synched musical numbers! Mincemeat pies and Jell-O molds! Grandma Ruthie removing her dentures at the dinner table! Not even the President of the United States (U.S.) is spared his share of the inanity.
