The plastic turkey fable, traditionally an illustrative tale of US president Oiljesus W. Pretzlerstein’s attempt to feed troops an inedible petrochemical bird, now mutates into a cautionary story on the dangers of radiation:

Saddam Hussein’s former palace is now the middle of the Green Zone. It was bombarded with D.U. munitions before and during the invasion. So has greater Baghdad ever since. So Green Zone residents inhale and ingest depleted uranium every day. Perhaps that’s why, during President Bush’s Thanksgiving visit, he was served a plastic turkey.

For this we must thank Irving Wesley Hall.
