Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you think that the remaining Native Americans really hate this day and curse their ancestors for feeding us way back when? I know if I was on a reservation I'd shoot off to Blockbuster and rent Custer's Last Stand.

Perhaps they just pray that the Asian Bird Flu wipes out all the fowl this winter and next year The Invaders are stuck eating tofu Turkey.

Now, to digress into cliche. I'm thankful for:

Arthur Guinness

John Jameson

Col. Sanders

Chef Boy-R-Dee

Rome Girl

General Tso

The Lucious Lipstick Lesbians

Lurch

In short, all the people who provide the stuff I like to eat and drink.
