Three doctors go hunting in the woods the week before Thanksgiving.
They hear rustling in the brush, the first doctor, the internist says “Looks like a turkey, walks like a turkey, goobles like a turkey, must be a turkey” . . . He shoots and he misses.
A short time later, they spot movement in the brush, the second doctor, the pathologist says “Brown feathers, red neck and fan-like tail feathers, must be a turkey” . . . He shoots and he misses.
About 10 minutes latter, they again hear rustling in the brush, the third doctor, the surgeon just fires away Blam. Blam. Blam and two birds drop dead. He looks at his friends and says “Guys, go check if those were turkeys.”
'Jasoom' is the title given to our Earth by the Martians of Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels.
