DHS Issues Dire Warning About….Wait, Frying Turkeys?

A bit of silliness, or pure idiocy, probably both, to start off your Wednesday morning, via Big Sis, who seems to be taking this whole “homeland security” a bit far, as the Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering[1] highlights

The Department of Homeland Security is taking any threat seriously during the Thanksgiving holiday, including the ominous threat to our national security posed by turkey fryers.

“How dangerous can turkey fryers be?” asks a warning[2] issued on the official DHS Twitter account. “Make sure the turkey is completely thawed before placing in a fryer, or this[3] may happen.”

“Use turkey fryers outdoors at a safe distance from buildings.” the DHS tweeted,[4] “Never use turkey fryers in a garage or on a wooden deck.”

Charlie highlights the “ominous” video (click on the hyperlink in the word “this”) of what can happen if you fry a turkey improperly. Sheesh, what would we do without DHS warning us as to what could happen? I’m sure some stone cold jihadis are thrilled that DHS is concerned with this, rather than Islamic jihad.
