Thanksgiving Funnies...

Why do Pilgrims have trouble keeping their pants up?
'Cause they wear their belts on their hats!

What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets.  I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?  ~Erma Bombeck

The Turkey Popped Out of the Oven
The Turkey popped out of the oven
and rocketed in to the air;
It knocked every plate off the table
and partly demolished a chair.
It ricocheted into a corner
and burst with a deafening boom,
Then splattered all over the kitchen,
completely obscuring the room.
It stuck to the walls and the windows,
it totally coated the floor,
There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
where there had never been turkey before..
It blanketed every appliance,
it smeared every saucer and bowl;
There wasn't a way I could stop it;
that turkey was out of control.
I scraped and I scraped with displeasure
and thought with chagrin as I mopped,
That I would never again stuff a turkey
with popcorn that hadn't been popped.

Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants!  ~Kevin James

Thanksgiving is America’s national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty.~Michael Dresser

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?" The stock boy answered, "No ma'am, they're dead."

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all!

  4. This is great! I'm so praying that my gym will be open on Friday. Screw the Black Friday shopping; I'm going to have to run 19 miles to get the load off!!!

  5. I went running today for the first time in over a week. I felt like there was lead in my legs! I'm planning on running tomorrow. And, the only saving grace that will keep me from stuffing my face is the braces on my teeth that I'm still not used to.

    I told my running partner..."muffin top in running shorts is not a good thing":)

    We're headed to see the Muppet movie in a little bit. What the HECK am I supposed to eat with these things on my teeth? No popcorn, twizzlers, or goobers? I wonder if I can sneak some ice cream in with me:)

  6. Tottally loved the popcorn poem.

    Have a great thanksgiving. :)
