Happy Thanksgiving

In lieu of our typically trenchant commentary, we leave you today with an assortment of turkeys delighted to take their turn in the spotlight. Thanksgiving, of course, is the holiday most inextricably linked with food, and turkeys—those once-proud birds—are eager to get into the spirit.

Back to regular posting after the holiday.

Google's banner is pretty bad this year. Definitely suicide food.

Yea, I agree about the Google banner, pretty weird stuff. And that bikini turkey is just wrong.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

We're having duck this year. Hope you guys have a good tofurkey or whatever disgusting thing you eat at Thanksgiving.

Right on schedule. It's Francois with the olive branch of conciliation!

Francois Tremblay said...

Conciliation? We're not fighting, why would we need to reconciliate? ;)

yeah, soy beans are gross and carass is good. weird...
but i guess i should expect that in a world in which beyonce wins grammys.

"Carcass" makes it sound like meat-eaters only eat bones and rotten organs, because of the association with human carcasses. But of course I shouldn't expect fanatic veg*ns to be any more charitable towards meat-eating than I am towards their disgusting habits.

Thanks Francois! No tofurkey here (in fact, I've never even tried it). I just had the usual: potatoes, squash, stuffing, beans, rolls, gravy... and PIE!!! Lots & lots of PIE!!!!


Wait, did I mention the PIE?!

Hey, Lisa, that's pretty cool. Of course, our stuffing had sausage in it, but I bet yours didn't... ;)

Wow, how'd you guess!! :p Actually, I never liked sausage (of any variety) when I did eat meat. Since I was a kid, I've always had a "separate" stuffing from everyone else. This year, I just served corn bread stuffing (w/o meat) and no one even noticed! In fact, I got plenty of compliments.


Now.... as a side note.... my husband did prepare a couple of cornish hens for his parents because they said "it just isn't Thanksgiving without a bird." Well, I didn't have to eat it, obviously, but the trade-off was that everything else was vegan (and they didn't even notice!).

Your husband is right! It just isn't thanksgiving without some bird.
