Michael Dukakis would have been one of America's thriftiest presidents, judging by what he does with Thanksgiving turkeys: He saves all the carcasses he can get to make soup with, and this year, he's probably going to have more than usual. The former Massachusetts governor tells the Boston Globe that it is "crazy" to throw away bones that can yield so much soup and if any readers don't want theirs, they can "come to 85 Perry Street in Brookline. We'll make full use of it, believe me." He says the turkey carcasses his friends and family gave him last Thanksgiving lasted the whole year, though he may now have to invest in a bigger freezer, the New York Daily News notes. The Globe has the Dukakis soup recipe here. (If you felt sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner, it probably wasn't the turkey's fault.)
