I ran across these amusing Thanksgiving quips and thought I'd share...Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Ambrose Bierce , The Devil's Dictionary
Turkey: A large bird whose flesh, when eaten on certain religious anniversaries has the peculiar property of attesting piety and gratitude .


Erma Bombeck , No One Diets on Thanksgiving
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?


Johnny Carson
Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday . People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often.


Irv Kupcinet
An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.

Jay Leno
I was over at Burbank airport and you could tell it's Thanksgiving...I saw a TSA agent probing a guy with a turkey baster.

Thanks for posting to Facebook precisely when you'll be out of town for Thanksgiving so I can rob your house.



 We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink. 

George Bernard Shaw

There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
