Catch Me If You Can

Q: What did the turkey say to the hunter?
A: Quack, quack!

Explanation: Happy Thanksgiving Day to readers who are celebrating Thanksgiving today.  I hope you are safe, and healthy.  Thank you for reading Explain the Joke!  

On Thanksgiving day, many families celebrate with a traditional turkey meal.  Of course if you are the turkey, it is not such a good thing.  

This joke is funny because the turkey is pretending to be a duck by saying, “Quack quack.”  Every language has words that mean animal sounds. In English, a turkey says gobble (scroll down on that link to hear the gobble).

Here is a reminder of the importance of being thankful.
