Welcome to my weekly post RE: 7 things I’m pondering, I’ve read, or that I just want to write about. It’s basically a place for me to write more stupid **** for you to read.
There are many holidays but none as fattening and ironic as Thanksgiving. While the true origins are a little hazy, Americans (myself included) bask in our European ancestors’ slaughtering of Native Americans. And we do so by inviting friends and family to the table, cooking ridiculous amounts of food, and saying a prayer of thanks prior to our gluttonous feast. Here’s what I’m praying for:
- My wife and son
- My family, extended family, friends, pets, proper nouns, etc.
- Cassette tapes
- Jean Claude Van Damme
- Yer mom
Happy Thanksgiving from me to you (unless you’re of Native American descent in which case I should probably offer an apology). And if you’ve got time check out the happiest of turkey movies, Thankskilling.
