Just a few Thanksgiving facts:

  • There are three townships in the state of Kansas named Turkey
  • U.S. farmers are expected to sell $4.3 billion in turkeys in 2008
  • Wisconsin is the leading green bean and cranberry producer in the U.S.
  • Americans eat about 13.3 pounds of turkey and 4.6 pounds of sweet potatoes annually
  • I couldn’t find statistics on marshmallow consumption, though I did find this great image of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and a website for the National Marshmallow Roasters Institute.

Well, hey, what’s the link for the NMRI?

I thought it might be somewhere in lileks.com, but no.

Sorry. WP won’t let me make that link open in a new window.
