As you'd expect, they get some crazy questions. Sue Smith, who sounds like she's in witness protection but is actually a veteran Butterball Talk-Line employee, told Ad Age that one mom came home to find her husband had stuck the turkey in a bath with the kids in an effort to thaw it. Other people have apparently tried dishwashers and electric blankets. Questions about thawing make sense, because turkeys are probably the biggest hunk of meat your average person cooks all year. Most people are used to tossing some chicken thighs in the fridge in the morning so they're defrosted by dinnertime. Turkeys take one day in the fridge for every four pounds of meat.
