Some jive turkey spoiled Thanksgiving for a Delta Waterfowl regional director.
THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING IN 2005, Aricka Westbrooks, 35, CEO of Jive Turkey, was sleeping on a wooden stool, leaning against the wall of her 1,500-square-foot store in Brooklyn, New York She and her staff were exhausted from frying turkeys 24 hours a day for four days straight.
In spite of Jive Turkey, a Brooklyn store (motto: grab, gobble, go) selling fried turkey all year round, Rick Boyd, a commercial turkey fryer from Florida said that if botched, this high-risk cooking method was ``like a space-shuttle taking off''.
His words give her a glittering ball dangling from the ceiling; men in wide-lapelled jackets,women in tube tops and hot pants; roller skates on everyone; jive turkeys and hot mamas all getting down and doing The Batman, The Bump, The Funky Chicken, The Hustle, and The Penguin as they come down the Soul Train line.
