Womensforum had a chance to speak with the co-director of the Turkey Talk Line Nicole Johnson, who gave us a little insight on the wacky questions they receive each year.

“We’ve heard everything from someone who wants to thaw their turkey in a jacuzzi, they want to do it in the dishwasher cycle, they want to hang it on a clothesline, which is perhaps not the best method…”

Johnson went on to explain how no matter how you plan on preparing your seasonal bird, Butterball has heard it all.
