"I've always felt like a freak and outcast...like a lot of people do...the home of Turkey Fools Day is one that's safe for weirdos like me. If we'd all let our freak flags fly and begin to live as our true selves, the world we live in would become more colorful, alive (and livable) and beautiful as far as I'm concerned. I have a dream of redefining 'normal' and I feel I do that, at least for a little while, in Turkey Fools Day." -Jo Jett (Creator/Director/Actor)
