Turkey Pardon is Like 'Dancing with the Stars'
Obama explained that each bird had to compete in a feathery beauty pageant set to music -- insisting it was like a "turkey version of 'Dancing with the Stars' ... except the stakes for the contestants was much higher."
He continued, "Only one pair would survive and win the big prize -- LIFE ... and an all expenses paid trip to Washington ... where they've been living it up on corn feed at the W hotel."
Obama concluded, "The W Hotel has really been putting them up?? It's great advertising."
