Thanksgiving and Turkey go together like a Sale and Going Shopping. Deep frying your turkey can be a dangerous event! I wouldn’t have a clue on this since I haven’t had meat since 1996. I just stick to Grandma’s pickles and pumpkin pie! But I want to make sure you are save this Thanksgiving.

William Shatner has teamed up with State Farm Insurance to warn you to be careful when deep-frying turkeys this Thanksgiving. And as it turns out, he speaks from personal experience.

“Several years ago I was burned on my arms after accidentally dropping the turkey in the hot oil. People need to remember that hot oil and turkey can be a dangerous combination. Ignorance is the friend of accidents. Be enemies with ignorance.”

Yes, there’s a video. And yes, Shatner is as hammy as ever in it.
