Towering Musical Theater Master Stephen Sondheim Dies at 91 Sondheim's Texas-based attorney, Rick Pappas, told The New York Times the composer died Friday at his home in Roxbury, Connecticut.
A reporter was on the receiving end of fowl play when she was goosed by a turkey
Back in September, Turkey farmer Paul Kelly warned – not for the first time – that the supply chain for turning live turkeys into Christmas dinner had several failing points, including poultry workers to pluck them and HGV drivers to transport them to shops.
'If we do not get the labour and CO2 situation sorted out, you really will have to cancel Christmas – in terms of eating turkey anyway.'

In a report on the same issue, CNN’s Anna Stewart visited his farm in Danbury, Essex, and quite bravely – or foolishly – delivered her piece to camera from the centre of a rafter of turkeys, and what happened next was comedy gold.
Turns out what turkeys REALLY like is a good laugh, at my expense. Sound up

What’s that about children and animals?
If they can’t sell the turkeys for food, they could always hire them out as a studio audience. Tweeters loved the clip, and this is what they said about it.
Sound up and if this doesnt make you laugh nothing will! https://t.co/zdMCedsSDk

One person suggested they might be laughing at the potential reprieve, amid a shortage of slaughterers and pluckers – yes, PLuckers.
"A shortage of poultry workers …"
I'd laugh if I was a turkey https://t.co/vmsmFsjNt7

Perhaps the shortage of poultry workers might be because they’re sick of being goosed – by turkeys.
The very funny @damocrat had this comment.
