As requested, Bostonians are dumping their turkey carcasses on the Dukakis doorstep

It’ll be a year full of turkey soup for the former Massachusetts governor.

ABoston Globe profile on Tuesday of former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate Michael Dukakis told of how the Brookline-based politician has an affinity for turkey carcasses.

“Throwing out a turkey carcass is sinful. Absolutely sinful,’’ Dukakis told The Globe. “It’s a terrible thing to do. There’s so much richness and goodness in a turkey carcass, God.’’

Dukakis loves these leftovers so much, in fact, that he encouraged those who would otherwise throw them out, to bring them to his house after Thanksgiving.

“They should use the carcass,’’ Dukakis said. “And if they don’t want to, tell them to come to 85 Perry Street in Brookline. We’ll make full use of it, believe me.’’


Ask and you shall receive. According to the Twitter account of his daughter, a political correspondent for ABC, the turkeys are starting to pile up outside of their house.
