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:

City Council President Darrell Clarke and Councilman Bill Greenlee handed out turkeys last week to seniors. LOOK HOW HAPPY SHE IS.

City councilman at-large David Oh is literally SURROUNDED BY TURKEYS.

Cops <3 turkeys!

And don’t forget about the athletic Philly celebs who got in on the turkey goodness.
