Watch as President Barack Obama pardons Thanksgiving turkeys for the last time Wednesday.
The White House tradition dates back decades and, historically speaking, has brought out the corniest side of our POTUS.

This year, the White House asked Twitter users to vote for one of two National Thanksgiving Turkeys to be pardoned -- Tater or Tot. The "confident," Justin Timberlake-loving Tot received the most votes. Lucky bird!
Both guys, however, will get to return to Virginia Tech's Animal and Poultry Sciences "Gobbler's Rest" after today's ceremony.
Obama also issued a Thanksgiving proclamation, which you can read in full here:
