“As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!”

One of the funniest sitcom episodes ever-- from WKRP in Cincinnati in the 1970's. The fledgling radio station hosts a Thanksgiving Day promo, dropping live turkeys from a helicopter over a crowd in a supermarket parking lot.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I remember watching that episode when it first aired. I laughed long and hard. I’m disappointed that, like Monty Python, it just doesn’t seem to be as funny now.


  2. A poster I saw on my first summer job (washing dishes in a restaurant):

    It's hard to soar with eagles when working with a bunch of turkeys!

  3. Classic episode of a classic show.
    Good stuff!

  4. While the term 'God' is not God's name, we do use it that way in our language and culture.

    With that in mind, would not most usage of "As God is my witness" be examples of thaking the name of the Lord in vain?
