Philly’s leaders, athletes and famous folk are out and about this week distributing and, of course, posing with turkeys in anticipation of Thanksgiving. It’ll be hard to beat Mayor Michael Nutter’s closeup with a turkey mascot (see below), but hey, everyone else can try if they so choose.
Here are eight photos of Philadelphians giving the bird:
