How is it not ridiculous? What makes sense about calling 3 consecutive strikes a turkey?

"Hambone" has no historical reference, just some stupid blabbermouth who decided to think of something "cute" to come after "turkey".

You say that 2 bowling terms you accept have no historical reference, and then bash hambone for having no historical reference.

I'm just going to put these 2 next to each other:

What is the difference between naming a single strike and naming a series of strikes? A strike has plenty of terms, a 4 bagger had none (aside from the generic 4 bagger, which is applied to any number of strikes). Can he rename anything that already has a name, and it's ok? What if he called a turkey something different? "He just turned the big three oh, thirty pins in a row!"
