How large of turkey do I need to buy?

How much Turkey?

When buying a turkey, purchase one pound of turkey per person to be served. This formula allows for the holiday meal plus a little left over for the prized turkey sandwich.

Only one pound! You do not live with the gluttons I do!! Your family and friends must eat like, uh, BIRDS!

This is a great site! It came right up when I put in the question "How much turkey per person?". My only concern is if I only have ten people coming does that mean a ten pound turkey? What about the bone and giblets that aren't edible? Do your figures include that?
