British turkey tycoon Bernard Matthews dead at 80 on Thanksgiving Day.

Bernard Matthews, who owned the biggest turkey producer in Britain and was the first to advertise turkey products on television there, has dead at the age of 80 on Thanksgiving Day.  Matthews started his company with 20 turkey eggs and an incubator 60 years ago and became one of the largest employers in East Anglia, according to company CEO Noel Bartram.  Matthews came up with a popular turkey equivalent of chicken nuggets called Turkey Twizzlers, which are like curly fries made of turkey.
