Happy Thanksgiving! (Rerun)

This comic is a rerun, but I'll be back with a fresh comic next time.

I have had a really good year, and I have my readers (uh ... that's you) to thank for most of it. 

And, of course, thanks as always for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

Mullet Boss is right, though. It looks more like a chicken.

Dang! Just posted about this strip a few days before!

An awesome strip, though! Gave me a good laugh

Yes... But... Is Scott lulling Mullet Boss so that when the inevitable happens and Scott commits an intentional fowl on the back of Jenkins' virgin RJ-17, the energy of the resultant world-wide brain-reaction allows Scott to break the hilarity barrier and achieve escape verbosity..?

@sianhulo: it's a common schoolchild activity around the US Thanksgiving holiday to draw turkeys (the bird associated w/ Thanksgiving, because it's the traditional meal of the holiday...) by outlining a hand then drawing in details.

I've no idea who started that practice; they never look much like turkeys, but schoolteachers keep directing children to draw them, and children keep bringing them home, and parents keep putting them up on refrigerators.

The real question is: who is the giant that lend his hand to that turkey drawing?

slanhulo - It's a very common art project for small children in the US around Thanksgiving to draw a turkey like this.

My company is closing, and today was the initial closing date. We are losing several great people. I will forward this to them, so that they can forward it to the new corporation that decided to shut this place down.

Most of the foods associated with American Thanksgiving are New World foods that were unknown in Europe or Asia before colonization. Turkey, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberries, corn (maize), maple syrup, pumpkin, sugar cane (sugar, molasses, and rum), pecans, vanilla. The only common new world foods not featured on Thanksgiving are chocolate, tomatoes, and peppers.

Isn't that the mascot for "Poultry Helper?"

So glad to see a favorite again! I think you should take a break and run this every year. I'll laugh again every year.

@Sheherazahde - now I totally want a Thanksgiving meal made of chocolate, tomatoes, and peppers. That would kick way more butt than dry turkey and a can-shaped cranberry loaf.

Matt Thompson,
my condolances.
Too much of that going around.

The one my nephew made out of an apple, some toothpicks, and some marshmallows and gumdrops was much more believable. Sadly, my older son was semi-devastated when he learned we wouldn't be eating the 4-day-old marshmallows. I should have just said "Go ahead" and watched his face turn green. That's education.
