Phone thread getting hot and heavy in the geek tab. You should check it out.

A turkey tried to follow my brother and me onto the school bus once. She was a pet though, and she was smart enough to give up after being rebuffed at the door. Soon it became household policy to keep Lassie -- yes, that was her name -- closed in the barn, because having a turkey wait for the bus with you is... well, hilarious. More so in retrospect than when you're a middle school kid with self-esteem issues.

Couldn't access the link. I presume that fowl play is suspected?

"All the teachers were making sure we were okay, and some of the teachers were making jokes like 'we have some bus 1 survivors today,'" Leary said.

The teachers were making 9/11 jokes about turkeys hitting the bus?

As god as their witness they thought the turkey could hit the south bus?

Oh sure, laugh now, but are YOU going to tell a turkey it can't ride on the bus?

The kids should be glad the turkey died. Look at what turkeys did to this poor schoolboy! Those bastards!

A buddy of mine from highschool has an impressive set of scars all across his back. It literally looks like he was flogged. What really happened was, he was driving down the road and a turkey smashed through his windshield and fell into his backseat, where it revived, and proceeded to spur the ever-loving shiat out of him as he hunched against the steering wheel. The turkey was trying to escape through the open driver side window, and he just happened to be in the way.

Well, take it up with Gordon Jump and the WKRP in director.   This catch phrase is exactly as it was spoken in the "Turkey's Away"

Further, your grammatic pendanticism is misplaced.     "As" is as correct as "is" here.

Les Nessman: I'm here with hundreds of people who have gathered to witness what has been described as perhaps the greatest turkey event in Thanksgiving Day history. All we know for sure is that in a very few moments there are going to be a lot of happy people out here. Now the crowd is...
[passers-by gawk at Les]

Les Nessman: The... the crowd is uh... curious but well behaved. And I think I hear something now. Uh... The crowd is moving out into the parking area. And... oh yes! I can see it now. It's a... it's a... helicopter and it's coming this way!

Andy Travis: A helicopter?

Les Nessman: It's flying something behind it and I can't quite make it out. It's a large banner and it says H A P P Y... T H A N K S... giving... from W... K... R... P! What a sight, ladies and gentlemen. What a sight. The 'copter seems to circling the parking area now. I guess it's looking for a place to land. No! Something just came out of the back of a helicopter. It's a dark object, perhaps a skydiver plummeting to the earth from only two thousand feet in the air... There's a third... No parachutes yet... Those can't be skydivers. I can't tell just yet what they are but... Oh my God! They're turkeys! Oh no! Johnny can you get this? Oh, they're crashing to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! This is terrible! Everyone's running around pushing each other. Oh my goodness! Oh, the humanity! People are running about. The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Folks, I don't know how much longer... The crowd is running for their lives. I think I'm going to step inside. I can't stand here and watch this anymore. No, I can't go in there. Children are searching for their mothers and oh, not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this. I don't know how much longer I can hold my position here, Johnny. The crowd...

Dr. Johnny Fever: Les? Les? Les, are you there? Les isn't there. Thanks for that on-the-spot report, Les. For those of you who've just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven.

"The kids were on their way to Mindess Middle School...". Read that as 'Mindless', which is more apropos.

Nope nope nope.  Listen to the clip.

"With God as my witness" or "As God is my witness" are correct.  Don't commingle them.

I have to wonder if there is another meme based on a single line from a '70s sitcom (and not even a very successful one at that) that is still in play today.

I suspect it has to do with this:

CSB:  For only the second time in history, and the first in over two decades, radio will have a WKRP.

http://recnet.net/fmq.php?facid=191806

It'll be a podunk low power FM station in Raleigh, North Carolina, but WKRP nonetheless.

"As God is my witness" is a complete clause; without the "as" it would be a complete sentence, and the "as" serves to connect it to what follows.

"With God as..." is a complete dependent clause; the preposition "with" introduces a condition. ("God as my witness" is not a complete sentence.)

"As God as my witness" does not make sense; "as" doesn't serve the role that "with" does in the second option, and "as" doesn't serve the verbal role that "is" does in the first. It is likely an error.
