Dash of Spice

American Secretary of State William Evarts, a popular after-dinner speaker, once rose to deliver an address at a Thanksgiving function. "You have been giving your attention to a turkey stuffed with sage," he began. "You are now about to consider a sage stuffed with turkey!"

[Also told of Jimmy Walker introducing the sage of Wall Street, Bernard Baruch.]

[What do the Turks call turkey? "The American bird."]
