: Does anyone know what calling someone a turkey means?, or 'You turkey'.

If you call someone a turkey you are calling him a stupid failure of a person.

Turkeys have a reputation for being stupid. There is a show business slang of a new Broadway show being called a turkey if the show got bad ratings and is inferior, a failure.
