"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin
I trust that most of you are off tomorrow to celebrate with your families, or whomever, that most American holiday, Thanksgiving.
OK, one might say, 4th of July is pretty damned American too, but here's the real difference, and the reason I give Turkey Day the red, white and blue thumbs up.
This day is about the most 'murican of 'murican activities...killing and eating. What could be more 'murican than that? The Four of July? Well, lots of loud, pseudo-killing with fireworks, but no ACTUAL slaughter. Certainly lots of imbibing of Daddy-type beverages, giving one the excuse to "asshole out", but no ritual stuffing of the gut with stuffing and copious amounts of starch and sugar.
No sir, Thanksgiving is THE holiday. Thank you Jesus!
Of course there are some who would give this day a definite, 5 Star...Thumbs Down. For example:
What I have to say to that is...tough shit, Tom. Life's a bitch...unless of course, one is a Repukelican spokes-piece.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, speaking of turkeys...18 minutes per pound...Glenn Beck...225 lbs @ 375 degrees = Never mind...mostly flab anyway.
HAVE A HAPPY ONE EVERYBODY.
