This year someone who shall remain nameless decided the sales were so good on the Turkeys she bought three, including one "fresh" one, we now have a plethora of fowl.

Another of my late replies, but as it is still the previous season, I thought I'd bring up the idea of that wonderful plethora of quality food that is on the market now. Just think how much good stuff will be purchased between now and the 31st. Yum, yum!

I expect there will be a plethora of wrappers lying about for a few days afterward, too.
