Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor

Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor

You just can’t make this stuff up.

On the right is Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, who sent me this preview picture today of him in his turkey suit.

He promised to wear this costume in public if folks donated enough cash — $8 each — to the Community Chest for 300 turkeys.

Eager to see the good-natured Taylor make a fool out of himself for a cause, the good citizens of Brentwood and elsewhere are still sending in their money. Due, in large part, to the specter of a feathered Taylor, the chest will hand out nearly double that many birds this week.

Hey, most folks think politicians are turkeys anyway. He might as well leverage it for the growing numbers of needy residents.

You can have your picture taken with a real turkey politician from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday at The Streets of Brentwood’s Community Boutique, located next to the Rave Motion Pictures Brentwood 14.

    That’s gotta be one of the best photos we’ve ever had on this blog… and so much better for the woman cracking up behind him.

    Looks like a 4 H project gone really wrong.

    Bob, good show.

    Kudos to Bob for sending me that picture!
