Things that Americans can only say on Thanksgiving

01. Talk about huge breasts!
02. Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.
03. It's Cool Whip time!
04. If I don't undo my pants, I'll burst!
05. That's one terrific spread!
06. I'm in the mood for a little dark meat.
07. Are you ready for seconds yet?
08. It's a little dry, do you still want to eat it?
09. Just wait your turn, you'll get some!
10. Don't play with your meat.
11. Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.
12. Do you think you'll be able to handle all these people at once?
13. I didn't expect everyone to come at once!
14. You still have a little bit on your chin.


They only started this a faw years ago when quite a few American ships happened to be in town on the Thanksgiving. Since then it's become a regular event.

As it happens I've been to Plymouth Devon (where I was born), Plymouth Mass as well as Leiden in Holland where the Pilgrims' passage began.

Maybe we could organise another flush out of religous loonies today?

From Your American Reader,

One of our more literate immigrants Christopher Hitchens, perhaps describes the Thanksgiving Dinner best with his article today in the Wall Street Journal, "The Turkey Has Landed". Referring to the turkey, cranberry and pumkin pie mix, Mr. Hitchens states "I wish I could pretend to relish--" and "Indeed, it is the sheer modesty of the occasion that partly recommends it. The whole point is that one forces down at an odd hour of the afternoon, the sort of food that even the least descriminating diner in a restaurant would never order by choice".

Mr. Hitchens has captured the essence of Thanksgiving.
