Pretend you are a Pilgrim, getting ready for the first Thanksgiving four hundred and one years ago. If you were a male, you would have to get the old Blunderbuss out to go hunting. This would be nothing special, since you have to hunt for any meat that you eat.  This time you would bring back some plump wild turkeys for the celebration, as well as some venison.  

Jump forward to Thanksgiving 2022. No hunting for us, we will just brave the crowds at the nearest supermarket and grab that bird right out of the cooler.  He would be naked, having already been divested of his coat of feathers as well as his guts. He would be all ready to plop into our ovens and cook.
