Thanks For Nuthin’

As we move headfirst into the holiday season and you prepare to gorge yourself on Ben Franklin’s national bird of choice (or a nice vegan substitute – no judgement), let us take a moment to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. Like the cast of We Are Men, Carlos Danger, Derrick Rose, Jonas Brothers fans, anyone who paid full price to see Smurfs 2 or After Earth, McRib eaters, Jacksonville Jaquars season ticket holders, Lara Logan, that elk that headbutted that photographer, President Obama, kids who get the Captain America shield for Christmas, and the citizens of Toronto.

Anyhow, the point is … well, there really isn’t a point. Need and desperation and misfortune come in all shapes and sizes, no matter who you are. One man’s Thanksgiving is another man’s thanks-for-giving-us-the-shaft-and-taking-our-land. It all depends on which side of the meal you’re on. I mean, basically, no amount of cranberry sauce, stuffing, bowl games, parades or cheesy holiday specials can make it a nifty keen day for the turkey, right?

So, eat hearty, my friends! Give thanks, where appropriate. Enjoy yourselves. But don’t get too full of yourself `cuz, hey, this ain’t a very special episode of Blossom or anything.
