The turkey says "Gooble Gooble."

The new phone books stickers are here! Trader Joe's — your neighborhood grocery store and the bestower of seasonal stickers — has received a new round of adhesive circles for holiday shoppers in search of DIY dinner greatness.

The 2012 Thanksgiving stickers made an appearance Thursday night at the Silver Lake location where a friendly employee, who mentioned the stickers arrived earlier in the week, pointed out the possible fantastic flaw in the turkey translation — it appears that someone spelled "gobble" wrong.

In fairness, Trader Joe's could have a "gooble"-named product that's yet to debut, or perhaps they just have an advanced knowledge of turkey talk.  For all we know, we're the ones onomatopoeia-ing wrong. Those birds could have been saying "gooble" the whole time.
