Butterball hotline: 'West Wing's' President Bartlet gives it a ring

This country has many great Thanksgiving traditions that have emerged in the past 100 years -- the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys always playing their respective NFL games and, of course, the Butterball hotline.

For more than 30 years, professionally-trained turkey experts have been available in November and December to talk turkey by answering your gobbler-related questions. It's 1-800-Butterball, if you need any help.

Furthermore, the Butterball hotline gave us the above scene from "The West Wing," from the Season 3 episode "The Indians in the Lobby." It's terrific. We particularly like the fact that he's "Joe Bethersenton," not like "Joe Anderson." That President Bartlet. He's eccentric.
