Turkeys all over the world are demanding a recount, insisting that they didn’t vote for Christmas, it has been announced.

As kitchen ovens heat up throughout the nation in preparation for Christmas dinner, half of the turkey population are calling for the ballots to be checked again.

They argue that although the majority of them didn’t vote for Christmas, they’ll all end up getting eaten anyway.

However, there are huge numbers of turkeys who actually did vote for Christmas, many citing the fact that they were “fed up with the status quo” and wanted to “shake things up a bit”.

A non-Christmas voting turkey was defiant.

“We didn’t vote for this.”
