Popcorn has been victorious in the first annual Thanksgiving Turkey Hunger Games. Today, President Barack Obama pardoned the bird after putting the choice up to a vote. Popcorn was the clear victor over his rival Caramel, and America's commander in chief pronounced, "With the power vested in me, I grant Popcorn full reprieve from a future of stuffing and cranberry sauce." Don't worry, Caramel fans. Obama added: "Just for the heck of it, I’m giving Caramel a break and pardoning him, too."

The president, joined by his daughters, also took the chance to crack some jokes, which were also posted on Twitter.
