Jive Turkey...Just In Time For Thanksgiving!

Back in the 70s when I was a kid, I remember the slang "Jive Turkey" being used in TV sitcoms, movies and music.  What is a "Jive Turkey" you may ask?  Well according to the Urban Dictionary, it defines it as a.) One who speaks as though they know what they're talking about...though they do not. b.) a bullshitter.  Whatever the meaning, it would always garner a laugh when someone was called a "Jive Turkey".

Here is the Ohio Players singing the Jive Turkey song (funky stuff!):

Here is the trailer from 1974 film of the same title:

Funny scene from Semi-Pro (where it is better to be called a cocksucker than a jive turkey):

Funny Scene from Black Dynamite (I ain't no Jive Turkey!)

Then there's Jive Talkin' by the Bee Gees...they left out the turkey.

And of course last, but not least....the Jive Talkin' scene from Airplane...cracks me up every time!
