Turkish people eat turkey but very rarely. Turkey meat is not as popular as red meat or chicken.
Jive turkey was a derogatory slang word in African AmericanVernacular English, used to refer to someone who was unreliable,made empty promises, or who was full of bluster. The insult becamewidely known among white Americans in the 1970s, particularly viatelevision comedies (e.g., The Jeffersons). T…he term has been usedby later television characters (e.g., Homer Simpson) in order todemonstrate that they are out of touch with modern youth trends,culture, and language. Jive turkey, however, was already fallinginto disuse when it was spoken by supposedly "hip" characters inthe 1970s, such as George Jefferson, and later in 2008 by CorneliusBanks (Tim Meadows) in the movie "Semi-Pro." Thehumorous/interesting sound of the term has also resulted in itbeing use in complimentary fashion, often by those who don't knowwhat it means and so make up their own meaning. The term has alsobeen translated to mean a white person who can dance. Turkey, beingwhite meat, represents the white person. Jive is a form of dance. (MORE)

A turkey is called 'Hindi' in Turkish. But the name of the country is TÃ¼rkiye in Turkish.You can find many turkeys in turkey but they are not from Turkey. The French call them "dinde" which translates as "from India". The Turks also thought they came from India and therefor (as noted above) calle…d them "Hindi" (from India). The English thought they were called turkeys because they came from ships that traded with turkey. The first turkeys were introduced in the 16th century from Mexico where they were known as "guajolote" so it would seem,noone got it right (MORE)
because an animal which is very similiar to turkey only live in turkey was seen by an foreigner and taken to his own country in there they ask what is it? then the man says its turkey (which means this one comes from turkey)
Because they are called Turks so they put Turks first then add ey (turk-ey) but in Turkish it is spelled Turkiye (Turk-i-yeah)
Because you just do. Its like saying why do you call your head your head.

Only in a convoluted way! Wild turkeys originate from North America, when Europeans saw them, they mis-classified them as a form of Guinea Fowl, which had been domesticated in Greece and imported into Europe by Turkish merchants. That's the connection with Turkey that caused the birds to be calle…d turkeys in England (and hence, America). (MORE)
To "dig" was to like or enjoy. "Jive" was literally a dance style, but came to mean what ever was happening around you.
actually you dont call Turkey the country as turkey the animal. youcall the animal as Turkey. because the first turkey(hindi animal)comes from the country Turkey. lots of turkeys huh.
Usually, when someone calls you a turkey, it means you have done something dumb because turkeys are known not to be the brightest of birds.
To dig something is to enjoy, like, love or understand something. Jive means to tease or lie to someone. Jive can also mean to dismiss something as false, nonsensical or unimportant. Examples of dig: "I really dig The Beach Boys.", "She digs the beach.", "I dig what your saying." Examples of jive: T…easing: "Don't jive me! My nose isn't blue." Lying: "Don't jive me! I saw you with her!" Nonsense: "That's jive Mary! You know you are as pretty as the other girls." (MORE)

Really it depends on how the person is saying it and who they are. Sarcastic, giggling, muttering, diligently and softly, boy or girl. It all depends on the attitude and person. Think about it! -A.
The country got its name from the people, Turkey means strongand powerful. It just happens the name of the country in English is the same asthe name of a fowl in English. The two are not linguisticallyrelated. Turkey in Turkish is Turkiye.
I asked the two living Ink Spots and their Manager this question and they didn't know the answer. The best guess is that it is jive talk meaning a raw hamburger with a slice of onion. --------- My grandmother's best friend married an Inkspot member and she says it refers to an old new york tradit…ion of putting half an onion and a raw egg into your coffee to make a breakfast-type dish/drink.

The Guineafowl originates from the Guinea region of Africa but in Europe it was often imported through Turkey, so it became known as the "Turkey Fowl". After European settlers travelled to America and discovered a similar bird, they mistook it for being a Guineafowl and the name Turkey became stuck …with it. In Turkey the turkey is called something like the "Hindu bird". In India it's called the "Peruvian bird". The country itself never used the name "Turkey" until it became a republic in the 1920s. Before that it was called the Ottoman Empire, but European countries would often call it Turkey after the people who lived there - the Turks. (MORE)

10 means ten out of ten, or a perfect body. A rather shallow and immature way of describing someone, especially as it takes no account of their character.
They are criticizing your appearance, particularly your height (or lack thereof). It could also be a compliment, depends on the context
Because Jesus came to save the world of its sins. And the Islamic view is that: The Holy Quran refers to Jesus as "Eesa", and this name is used more times than any other title, because this was his "Christian" name. Actually, his proper name was "Eesa" (Arabic), or "Esau". (Hebrew); classical "…Yeheshua", which the Christian nations of the West Latinised as Jesus. Neither the "J" nor the second "s" in the name Jesus is to be found in the original tongue - they are not found in the Semitic languages. The word is very simply - "E S A U" - a very common Jewish name, used more than sixty times in the very first booklet alone of the Bible, in the part called "Genesis". There was at least one "Jesus" sitting on the "bench" at the trial of Jesus before the Sanhedrin. Josephus the Jewish historian mentions some twenty five Jesus' in his "Book of Antiquities". The New Testament speaks of "Bar-Jesus", a magician and a sorcerer, a false prophet (Act 13:6); and also "Jesus-Justus", a Christian missionary, a contemporary of Paul (Colossians 4:11). These are distinct from Jesus the son of Mary. Transforming "Esau" to (J)esu(s), Jesus makes it unique. This unique (?) name has gone out of currency among the Jews and the Christians from the 2nd century after Christ. Among the Jews, because it came to be the proper name of their God(?), their God incarnate. The Muslim will not hesitate to name his son "Eesa" because it is an honoured name, the name of a righteous servant of the Lord. Messiah, is a term used in Judaism, Christianity and Islam for the redeemer figure expected in one form or another. The definition of the word is "savior or liberator; someone regarded as or claiming to be a savior or liberator of a country, people, or the world". (MORE)
The first merchants to market turkey birds came from Algeria, which was then part of the Ottoman Turkish Empire. As they seem to come from "Turkey", they were given that name.
mostly in my school when people say "jive" they are referring to inappropriate parts of the body or weapon such as " I'm going to grab yo jive if u don't shutout" or "shut up before i shoot you with my jive"

Turkey (poultry) is not that commonly consumed in Turkey (country). It is just a question of what proliferates in any given area. However, Turkey (country) does consume a lot of chicken and it would not be much of a stretch to say that Turks would eat and like turkey if it were served to them in tra…ditional Turkish ways or even in more common Western ways.

Anatolia has had a large number of names across time. You may wish to be specific as to what timeframe you are referring to. The last name Turkey had prior to being called Turkey was the Ottoman Empire.
The fact that the word "turkey" refers to both a country (Turkey) and a bird (turkey) in English is completely incidental. Turkey was not named after turkeys or vice versa. Turkey is just the English version of the Turkish name TÃ¼rkiye, literally meaning: Land of the TÃ¼rk people.
