Sara's Blog: William Shatner Wants To Save You From Exploding Turkeys

As we get ready for the festival of eating, it is important to remember that your turkey may do more than push you to unzip your pants and sack out for nap time. Turkeys can be dangerous! In the search for the best way to cook a moist and delicious bird, sometimes people throw caution to the wind. Thank goodness State Farm put a Canadian on the scene to explain the hazards of the seductress that is...the turkey fryer. Fast forward to :26 to begin the drama.

The Shat is not just a safety spokesperson, he really did have a turkey fryer incident. He says, "Several years ago I was burned on my arms after accidentally dropping the turkey in the hot oil. People need to remember that hot oil and turkey can be a dangerous combination. Ignorance is the friend of accidents. Be enemies with ignorance."

Aye aye Captain.
