27 November 2002

stolen directly from The Morning News (http://www.themorningnews.org/archives/editorial/the_non_experts_desk_thanksgiving.shtml) and in honor of our beautiful holiday of overeating.

(sung to The Star Spangled Banner)

O say can you see
Any turkeys tonight
With their proud, feathered tails
Plucked and salted ruthlessly

Whose carbuncles and beaks
Are of no use to us
But whose strong, noble hearts
Have been boiled for gravy

And their livers all cooked!
And their wings pinned and hooked!
And their heads in the trash
So they can’t watch us eat

O say is that carcass’s
Flesh what we truly crave…
With Thanksgiving its wake
And our table its grave!
