Here we go with another one of America's craziest traditions!
That's right, it's the real life America's Hunger Games!!
The White House wants U to choose which turkey will be pardoned on Thanksgiving day, which is terrifying because does this mean that Obama goes out in the back yard and kills the losing turkey?? Talk about another downfall of Obamacare!
Two turkeys, Caramel and Popcorn, are both fighting for their lives and a Presidential pardon!
Not only does each bird have a baseball card style list of stats, which you can see (below), you can even
Jesse Tyler Ferguson wants to be just like that old lady in Mary Poppins!
During an outing, he felt tempted to feed the birds, and sang along almost as beautifully as Julie Andrews, but just as he was about to lay down some crumb, the cutie pie Modern Family star stopped in his tracks.
Check out his Instagram video (above) to see if he ever caught flight! Chirp chirp!
We know you’re thinking to yourselves, ermergerddddd how many butterflies were killed in the making of this dress???
And we’re happy to report the answer is NONE! Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for the birds, because this dress is totes covered in 10,000 hand-painted feathers!!!
Yup, you heard us right. The monarch-inspired frock Elizabeth Banks wears as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was only complete after countless hours of excruciating details came together to form only ONE of many exquisite Effie looks.
Elizabeth recently elaborated on her incredibly stunning wardrobe in the flick, saying:
Bella Thorne is so busy! Makes sense though, seeing as how she's super gorgeous and talented!
She was recently snapped while on set at the beach in Santa Monica.
Bella was on the sunny shores of California along with Shaquille O'Neal, filming a spot for her new iDecade campaign.
During filming at one point, they decided to feed the birds!
Everyone knows how seagulls can get around food, so you can imagine it was an intense time.
Bella looked like she was having fun feeding those birdies!
Shaq had a great time too! He's right there in the photo (above) we swear! That's his giant leg!!
Way to be kind to the birds, you two!

Ha! When it comes to gorillas, we tend to think of furry tanks with unstoppable fists of fury!
Or them being all smart and learning sign language or petting a kitten or something.
This gorilla is a big wimp!
Two geese flew into his enclosure and all it takes is a couple of honks to scare him off.
He keeps approaching them again, and quickly runs away as soon as they spread their wings and stand up all threatening like!
It's pretty funny to see such a giant beast afraid of two tiny geese.
Check out the video (above) to see one scaredy gorilla check out some geese!
Remember when the worst thing that happened during the government shutdown was we lost our precious panda cam??
That was totes the worst!
During the government shutdown the Smithsonian's National Zoo had to close its gates! And it lead to the saddest photo we've ever seen!
Well the zoo is now back open! Huzzah!
While it was closed, some inneresting shiz went down: there was a departure, two deaths and some SEX!
Mike Tyson is a huge pigeon lover!
He loves the birds so much he's really worried about the government conspiracy to kill them!
A paparazzi caught up with Mike at LAX and asked him all about the pigeons, and Tyson went on about how the government hates pigeons and is involved in a conspiracy to kill them!
What's funny is, this would normally sound like crazy person nonsense but it's kinda true, especially in NYC.
Back in the day, the city brought in hawks to take care of the pigeon problem. But that ended when a hawk attacked a small dog.
Though there are still hawks in NYC due to a "natural resurgence" according to the NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation.
So, how do U feel? Are they urban doves or "rats with wings?"
