On Satire Bits: Thanksgiving Edition (v36)

Thursday is a national holiday in the USA – Thanksgiving – and family day of bountiful meals, the Macy’s parade, football, and more. Before advancing to the frivolities of this post, I want to say a special thank you to all those who bestow their presence upon my little corner of the world.

Yes – I am very thankful for you and your blogs as well. No matter if you are in America or elsewhere across the world, best wishes to you and your family in the spirit of our holiday that touches all humanity.

FYI: I won’t be posting Thursday, but I can’t pass up the day after.

For the spirit of the day, I dove into The Onion’s archives for these gems regarding Thanksgiving. Any favorites?
