Turkey Day

Thursday, November 28th, 2002

Across the world today, man celebrates his prehistoric victory over turkeys by taking part in the annual family ritual of catching a turkey, cooking it, stuffing it with savory delights, and then devouring it until there is nothing left but bones. But Rev. Smith attempts recapture some of the thrill man’s original prehistoric glory by waking up early and wrestling a full-grown male turkey at the crack of dawn and then devouring it live. There are some who would call this ritual barbaric and cruel, but for Smith it is a deeply symbolic act, fraught with profound emotion and a grim sense of duty. Asked what he would do if one day the turkey was the victor in the wresting match, Smith shuddered and said, “I hadn’t really stopped to consider that.”

It was a solemn occasion this morning as Rev. Smith attended the funeral of longtime friend and associate Tony Danza who was killed earlier this week in an apparent terrorist attack on the Danza compound in Tarzana, CA. “We didn’t always see eye-to-eye on every issue,” said Smith who had a major falling out with the former star of Who’s the Boss? and The Tony Danza Show a couple of years back, “but Tony was an extraordinary man, both on and off screen.” After delivering a short eulogy to his departed friend, Smith tore his clothes, put ash on his head and wore sackcloth for the rest of the day.
