Before the Obamas sit down to their final Thanksgiving feast in the White House, the President will pardon two turkeys who will then go live out the rest of their fine feathered lives at “Gobbler's Rest” in Blacksburg, Virginia. This is one of America's weirder traditions, but hey, it's cute.

So who are these two fortunate birds? Meet Tater and Tot, a couple of male turkeys who have enough interests to fill out a complete Tindr profile.

So first up is Tater. He is slightly larger than Tot, and according to his profile, he likes to eat worms and has a strong gobble style. Additionally, he likes the song "Me Too" by Megan Trainor and walks with a swagger. He seems like a total Bro-turkey. Brorkey.

Then there is Tot. Tot prefers tomato slices to worms, is a confident gobbler and walks with a "relaxed saunter." He also enjoys the song "Can't Stop The Feeling" by Justin Timberlake. He kind of sounds like the chill camp counselor you had a crush on as a kid.

There. I officially know more about Tater and Tot than I do my extended family members.

Although both birds will be pardoned, the White House is conducting a poll to determine which turkey will be named the official "National Thanksgiving Turkey." It's a tight race, so even if you are all vote-ed out after the Presidential election, it is up to you to pick which bird gets the prestigious accolade. And you can do it without having to get up and go to the polls.

According to WhiteHouse.gov, the tradition of pardoning two turkeys instead of one started when Sasha and Malia begged their dad to spare both birds during his first turkey pardon back in 2009. Since then, he has spared many duos of turkeys with complimentary names including Apple and Cider, Mac and Cheese, and Carmel and Popcorn (to name a few.)

The customary Turkey Pardoning started in 1947, so it is likely that President-Elect Trump will keep up the time honored tradition. Who knows, though—Trump is a pretty unconventional leader already. Perhaps he will appoint the turkeys to his cabinet or something instead.
