“Thanksgiving is so called because we are all so thankful that it only comes once a year.”– P. J. O’Rourke




The Thanksgiving tradition is, we overeat. ‘Hey, how about at Thanksgiving we just eat a lot?’ ‘But we do that every day!’ ‘Oh. What if we eat a lot with people that annoy the hell out of us?”– Jim Gaffigan


“In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to each other’s homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings – for the food on their tables and the babies in their arms.”– Cynthia Rylant, In November


“Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is.”– Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea


“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage.”– Erma Bombeck

  1. Henry, Editor-In-Chief have a great Thanksgiving and here is hoping that your human friends remember some turkey for you too.

    As for Tubularsock it’s a day to bolt the bunker door, load the AK-47 and lay low until after that next obnoxious holiday with that fat old pedophile looking for cookies, children and milk as he creeps down their chimney.

    And remember, on a happy note. For the “Indians” and the Turkeys it’s a day that their future looks a bit gloomy and their history as well.

    Cheers and here to freedom.
