Thanksgiving 2013………A Lighthearted Look At Turkeys, The Holiday, Tradition and Eating.


Well here we are. Another Thanksgiving and another day we can really pig out and not have anyone getting on our case about it. Until tomorrow when its leftover time.

This year I thought I’d highlight some of the lighter things about Thanksgiving with a few well chosen cartoons. Only because if I start really getting into writing most of you will have fallen asleep by the second paragraph. Has something to do with turkey tryptophan or something. Although, if that’s the case, why is it turkeys aren’t sleeping all of the time.

I personally think that is a myth. My theory is that turkey farmers, being of a compassionate nature, drug their turkeys with a few tranquilizers before they hack their heads off. Thereby transferring the tranquilizers effects to us….who eat the turkey. My theory anyhow.

Hey! Can you come up with anything better?


But as long as you’re here, give me my damn Christmas present



Turkey CSI Investigations

And these days one always has to be careful when establishing a relationship with a turkey.

Because we men are basically a bunch of perverts and have only one thing on our mind, “boobs,” this actually makes sense to me.


Preferably heaving throbbing ones

However, keep in mind if life is ever discovered on other planets, pray it’s not inhabited by turkeys.


Geez Thelma, will that fit into an oven?

And, pause for a moment of silence for the dearly departed on this day.


“OMG…he was soooo young and in the prime of his life.”

In Arnold Schwarzenegger’s house at Thanksgiving there was always a problem.


You may recall that Mitt Romney wanted to get rid of Big Bird. It finally happened.


The Romney family on Thanksgiving

On the very first Thanksgiving, football was invented. Which leads me to conclude that the first football was made out of turkey skin. Just a guess. BUT…seems kinda logical to me.


Tooooo late…………

And of course one of the deleted scenes from The Wizard of Oz.


Dorothy….have you seen Scarecrow?

Some of us less fortunate people sometimes have minor screw ups cooking our Thanksgiving turkey. But, nothing to fret about.


And…..sniff….sniff….I think it’s just about done

This day is also a day where you should remember that your loyal pets are a part of the family as well. Please share with them…..before they attack you and run off with a drumstick.


As I mentioned earlier, pray that turkeys do not inhabit other planets.


So honey, whaddya want. Arm, leg, breast, thigh, or whatever this thing here is between its legs

Naturally football is on the agenda today.


Hmmm. Sound like good deal. We like Boston Redskins.

Then there’s the endless days of leftovers until it comes outta your ears. Unless, as in the MisfitWisdom household, where there’s only myself and my other half, we simply go to the city every year, trap a plump city bird, (pigeon) and serve that sucker up on Thanksgiving. Nooooooooooooooooooooo leftovers.


And for the first time in a sixty million gazillion years Thanksgiving and Hanukkah are being celebrated for the first time together. Aptly dubbed, “Thanksgivingkah.” Oy vey.


Yeah, well be careful with that Menorah Seymour. You could get cooked a lot earlier than Thanksgiving Day.

And for the rest of you turkeys who have demented minds…………………


So, that’s it folks. Hope your Thanksgiving Day is filled with warmth and happiness.

To all the turkeys who gave their lives…………..(a moment of silence)

Ok….lets eat!
