Terrorist Turkeys! DHS Issues Warning on the Potential Dangers of Turkey Fryers

Mary Theroux reports at The Independent Institute:

Thank goodness for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)—the $57 billion per year super-agency created when the already bloated Department of Defense turned out to be incapable of defending even its own Pentagon headquarters. I mean, if it didn’t exist, how else could Americans learn that vats of boiling oil pose a danger?

For all those hapless cooks who have never seen a movie or cartoon of defenders pouring said vats over the ramparts of their besieged castles, the folks at DHS have helpfully Tweeted this warning on turkey fryers with a video showing their potential dangers.

$57 billion per year? And it was created in the first place because there were too many different agencies and bureaucracies, so a whole new cabinet level one was supposed streamline things a bit? Can I get my money back?
