Special Olympics Summer National Games - Bath - 2013

I'm a coach and I heard this comment by an athlete bowling at the Great Britain Games in Bath. One athlete had just had five strikes, and another athlete said, "Two strikes is a double, three strikes is a turkey, four we say is a double double. What is five strikes?" I said, "It's just five in a row," to which he said, "We could say three, turkey. Four, turkey and stuffing, Five, turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce??????" The other athletes and coaches fell about laughing. I think we will hang on to that one!
