I wonder if I'm the only one here who sees the irony this? We aren't Christians. Dad says every day what a rotten pile of shit this country has become. We hate each other's guts. Yet, here we sit, perpetuating the myth of family unity and wholesomeness in the age of AIDS and drive-by shootings, just so we can stuff our faces and add another inch or two to our pudgy bodies. I think...Huh? No, I didn't say anything. Just talking to myself. Pass the jello salad.Barko Lounge Cur

...and don't forget Traakus, god of the hunt, who gave us this fine scrodbird; or Fah, god of joyous vengence, for laying the entrails of our enemies before us on this glorious feast of Botar! AMEN!olin

So after the Pilgrims shared their Thanksgiving dinner with the Indians, is that when they gave them the smallpox infected blankets to take back to their village? Couldn't they have just poisoned the food and been done with it?paTRICK heSTER

Why am I suddenly reminded of the dinner scene in Eraserhead?Anastasia

O.K. Grandma, both hands on the table where I can see them!Anastasia

It suddenly dawned on a horrified Jeffy that he was the only one in the family that knew it was July and not Thanksgiving. But he relaxed when he thought about how it got him out of uniform and into halfway decent clothes. Anastasia

Grandma, how did you ever mold the Spam into the shape of a turkey?Anastasia

FOOD FIGHT!Anastasia

Oh..and uh lord, please bless all those little mangled fetuses that were so cruely ripped from their mothers wombs with incisors of death, piercing their brain stems without mercy as the puss oozes from their tiny heads! OK, I'm done, we can eat now.kafka

Uh, Dad? You forgot to draw silverware. How the fuck are we supposed to eat?Anastasia

Daddy, isn't grace 'posed to have more words than just "Amen"?Scoats

Daddy, why is your friend Roy kneelin' under the table and mumbling? I thought we were done prayin' !Vice Pope Doug

Thank you, Bil. And now, with a rebuttal, seated on my left, Ms. Violet Keane, a left-leaning moderate and senior lecturer at Tulane. Ms. Keane?Rotter

I like turkey. I wish Daddy would plow through open fields when he's wasted off his ass more often!Vice Pope Doug

Jeez, Dad, would ya zip yourself up already? Getting turned on saying Grace is a little weird, even for you. MechaGumby
