In light of the upcoming holiday, I thought I would post some interestingly random bits and pieces relating to Thanksgiving.
I think I had heard this one before, but it turns out that the President pardons a turkey every year only moments before it is sent off to meet the chef. Here’s the link for info on this year’s turkey and his alternate, you know, in case he gets car sick or something.
This seemed like a great spot to inset some choice commentary on what one person called the Chief Turkey, but since this is meant to be a happy post, I’ll refrain.
Of course, no recounting of hilarity would be complete without a contribution from the esteemed Mr. Barry. Be warned–reading the following article may cause you to break out into uncontrollabel spasms of laughter, and if you’re reading this during a class, you may call undue attention to yourself if you fall on the floor and stop breathing.
Just in case you don’t yet have a recipe to use for your turkey, I submit this for your review.
And last but not at all least, if your family’s Thanksgiving dinner is just a little bit dull, try this suggestion from http://www.butlerwebs.com/holidays/thanksgiving.html
“At the Thanksgiving dinner table when everyone goes around to say what they are thankful for, say, ‘I’m thankful I didn’t get caught’ and refuse to say anything more.”
