MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Governors get asked all the time for pardons, but very few jailbirds actually attain a successful result. When it happens, it's definitely an act to be thankful for.
Wednesday, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is scheduled to take pen to paper and officially spare one such featherbrain, named Clyde, before he gets the death sentence.
Convicted for the crime of being Juicy and Delicious in the First Degree, Clyde was sentenced to deep fry, his repayment to society to be served concurrently with mashed potatoes, creamed corn and cranberry sauce.
The gloomy fate neared until the turkey received the same pardon some of his ancestors (also suspiciously named Clyde) have received every year since 1948.
Clyde will be transported to the Governor's Mansion in Montgomery Wednesday where he'll learn of his pardon.
