Happy Thanksgiving


So I Googled "turkey panties" and came up with this. Turns out they were "made in Turkey". Also, I would have no idea how to put them on. Pretty color, though. If you think all things red are Republican, imagine Laura Bush in these. See? It ain't so.

I'm grateful for all of you and for the opportunity to blog through pneumonia. Getting a little better, I hope: back to doc in the box tomorrow, though.

My Second Grader brought home Weekly Reader this week. I wish there was a bigger picture online or that I had a scanner.


The type in yellow asks our young readers: "How might Native Americans give thanks today?"

My Pittsburgh buddy Spork is right. Irony is dead.

Have a great holiday.


  1. imagine Laura Bush in these

    See, thoughts like that damage your immune system, making you more susceptible to pneumonia -- and worse. Think HAPPY thoughts, BG, like Dubya in those panties.

  2. And Happy Thanksgiving to you! Hope you are feeling better soon.

    "How might Native Americans give thanks today?"

    I usually head over to a random white person's house, force him out, eat all his food, then make him and his family live in a tiny, benighted corner of the backyard where I occasionally give them surplus frybread and kanutche. Don't worry, though; in order to honor his culture, I will name a professional stickball team "The Whiteys".

    Alihelisdi iga!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    See, I usually deliberately infect people with smallpox on Thanksgiving Day.

    It also ensures that they can't shop on the consumer orgy that we call so fondly The Day after Thanks-getting

  5. A Fine Consumin' Day t'ye, Me Fantastic BlogMatey!

    American Thanksgiving (viewed from afar) seems so different than Canadian Thanksgiving, because ours is in October. My eldest niece, who is First Nations ("Native") on her mother's side, has her birthday on or near that day (the second Monday in October) and likes it a lot. So do I. By the way BG, I'm sure your doctor will check your ears--it's just that when I had pneumonia, the first doctor didn't, I ran a fever for a couple of weeks, then got properly diagnosed, antibiotics were changed, and I started to get better. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

  7. spork is usually always right.
    certainly about this.

  8. "...imagine Laura Bush in these."

    Gee, thanks. Like putting an annoying song in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks a lot.

    Hope you're feeling better!

  9. That Laura Bush idea - is that you or the meds your taking?

    Kind of hard to tell, really...

    If the Pilgrims had killed a cat instead of a turkey, would we all eat pussy for Thanksgiving?

    They could have killed a rooster and we would all be eating "cock" on Thanksgiving! Imagine that...
