Happy T’day!

For reasons I can’t articulate, the traditional presidential pardon of the turkey pisses me off. I don’t know. I’d totally support the first guy who said, “screw it – let’s eat this bird!”

I did some digging around but, believe it or not, it isn’t clear when the tradition started. Maybe with Lincoln (but probably not). You’d think something to do with the office of the president would be better documented.

Uncle B pointed out to me some years ago that Americans have two turkey holidays a month apart, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. So we just have a “nice meal” on Thanksgiving. Tonight, it’s steak and a baked potato with – I hope – homemade dinner rolls. It’s so cold in the kitchen, I don’t know if I can get them to proof properly.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all – and turn up tomorrow for the Dead Pool. Maybe I’ll even get the number right this time.
