Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! I’d like to wish each and every person reading these words a wonderful Thanksgiving. May your holiday be a wonderful celebration with family and friends – and of course, some great laughs!
Thanksgiving is a time for reflecting on our blessings. This year, we’ve had lots of blessings (and a few blessings-in-disguise). We’re grateful for *most* of them and for *everything* we’ve taken away from the experience. Most of all, it’s you we’re thankful for. Without such great people to work and laugh with, the world wouldn’t be such a fabulous place.
Using Humor At Thanksgiving
Are you headed for a holiday dinner where younger children will be present? Try memorizing a few silly Thanksgiving riddles. You’ll be giving the kids something to laugh about, keeping them entertained (and out of trouble!) and it may just turn out that their good mood is infectious.
(Our favorite? Why did the police arrest the turkey? They suspected it of fowl play!)
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
And for today’s chuckle (and to give a little comic relief to those of you who are facing down 18 pounds of frozen turkey this very minute) check out these real questions asked on the Butterball Turkey Hotline:
- Is it OK to baste my turkey with engine oil?
- Can I poke holes all over the turkey and pour a can of beer over it to keep it moist?
- Should I carve my turkey with a 16in Redmax or should I get out my Stihl Electric Chain Saw?
- How do I get my Chihuahua out of the turkey. (Her dog jumped up on the kitchen table.)
- Should I leave the giblets in their plastic bag during cooking?
- I’m a truck driver. Can I cook the turkey on the engine block of my semi while I’m driving? If I drive faster, will it cook faster?
- How long should I cook my turkey on the car radiator?
50 minutes at Mach 1 should do it!
