Over six thousand turkeys turned up in Norfolk as uninvited guests at Bernard Matthews’ recent funeral. Impeccably dressed in black the rafter of turkeys appeared subdued as they watched the funeral cortege.
It appears that the turkeys turned up just to check that Mr Matthews was actually dead. Not a word was spoken and rumors that someone mumbled ‘stuff him’ are unfounded.
Ironically, Mr Matthews CVO CBE, the multi-millionaire poultry mogul famous for his turkey ‘twizzlers’ passed away on Thanks Giving Day – many turkeys did not live to see him pass.
Bernard Matthews CVO, CBE (24 Jan 1930 – 25 Nov 2010) RIP
