Subject: [Leica] OT: Talking turkey
From: philippe.orlent at (Philippe Orlent)

I'm working on an ad concept (in English) in which we are visualising  
Now I stumbled upon the expression 'Talking turkey.' and I thought it  
would be a funny one to visualize.

But now I'm told (by not necesseraly native English or American  
speakers) that it is a very little known proverb, only American and  
only used in a familiar way.
I'm just wondering if this proverb is recognized by most of you who  
are using Shakespeare's or one of the American Rationalists' language.

Looking forward to your answers.
