8.         What is a young turkey called?

Answer = poult

From the late 16th century, thousands of geese and turkeys were walked the hundred miles from Norfolk to Leadenhall market in London each year. The journey would take three months and the birds wore special leather boots to protect their feet. Geese wouldn’t allow themselves to be shod (hence the contemporary phrase “to shoe a goose” for something difficult), so their feet were dipped in tar and covered with sand.

Or as my wife would tell you – me.  My kids know what happens when you leave the door open from the South facing warm sitting room into the colder hall way where the thermostat is fitted ie. the warm air rushes into the hall, rises and ups the thermostat level = central heating switches off.
