When I was about 10 years old my parents sent me to work on a turkey farm. I think it was supposed to be fun and teach me about hard work or something. I am not really sure. We did have some fun playing these crazy games of capture the flag over a several acre farm although during one game I ran into an electrical fence.
Several other electrical fence incidents also occurred that summer. I wanted to test the Ren & Stimpy bit about “Don’t Whiz on the Electric Fence”. I am not sure why I thought that would be a good idea but the electricity does in fact travel up the urine stream and your dick does in fact get shocked. Also at the camp someone snuck out in the middle of the night and grabbed a turkey and put it’s head in between to wires of an electrical fence and left it there to die. It was pretty horrible.
I am not sure the camp taught me anything about hard work but it did make me become a vegetarian for about a year. One of my jobs at the camp was to pick out dead baby chicks and put them in a trash back. Young turkeys are shipped in giant crates of 144 turkeys. In pretty much every case you would loose a chick or two and I had to go through all the crates and pick out the dead ones. They also were covered in blood because they all had their toe nails clipped and they were bleeding from their feet and they would step all over each other in the crates. It was pretty horrible and it was a long time before I ate turkey again.
