Bush Pardons Turkeys

Two turkeys received their pardon from the President today. Presidnet Bush pardoned the birds named "May" and "Flower" at the traditional White House ceremony this morning.

He says the names are better than the one's suggested by the Vice President, which he joked were "lunch" and "dinner."

The national bird and its backup are from Indiana and each weighs about 45 pounds.

They'll be spared a dinner table fate then flown to Disney World in Florida to live in Mickey Mouse's backyard at the Magic Kingdom
