Arts Happy Thanksgiving to You, You Live in a Zoo, You Draw Like an Undergrad Psych Student, and You Smell Like One, Too

To celebrate the day, please enjoy the results of an experiment conducted by a teacher’s assistant at Penn State, who took the liberty of adding the instruction “Draw a turkey” to the final page of a Psych 1 exam.
To see 274 different turkeys hand-drawn by 274 different first-year psychology students, go here.
The statistics alone are fascinating: Nine students drew turkeys in a cooked, Butterball style; five drew birds saying “Eat me”; six drew birds saying “Don’t eat me.” Then there are the drawings, which offer everything from primitive thrills to advanced dramatics.
