I celebrated Thanksgiving the old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house and we had an enormous feast. Then I took their land and put them on a reservation.
I have used history and its' acceptance to my benefit many times. I find it works very well and to my benefit. In fact that's how I got my house. I was driving down the street and discovered an empty house. So I planted my flag and claimed it.
The residents were quite taken aback when I proclaimed myself governor, but their children joined my alliance when I freed them from their parent's slavery. That worked well until the children moved to Detroit and Chicago.
The kids in Detroit did nothing but depend on other parents for their food, shelter and clothing, so all the parents moved to the suburbs and left no forwarding address.
The Chicago story is even worse. Some Yoyo backed into the Senate election and went on to rule the country because all the kids came down with "American Idol" syndrome and based their votes on popularity instead of ability. Now the whole country is in a big mess.
Next year, I'm going to Canada for Thanksgiving and incorporate their theory. Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957. It is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year. This year they gave thanks that Obama was the president of the United States and not Canada.....
The News As I See It: Thanksgiving was the best this year. Things were going great, having a lot of fun, the house was full of people, everybody getting along and then I realized that I had picked up the wrong family at the airport.
I love Thanksgiving. It's that's special time of year when your whole family gathers together in one place to take one last look at their old cellphones before they buy the new ones on Black Friday.
Researchers in Canada say they have discovered the part of the brain that is used to make decisions. If you're married, it's located in your wife's brain.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

A Jewish guy goes into a confession box and says to the priest. "Father O’Malley, my name is Emil Cohen. I’m seventy eight years old. I’m currently involved with a 28 year old girl, and on the side, her 19 year old sister. We engage in all manner of pleasure, and in my entire life I’ve never felt better."
The priest says,"My good man, I think you’ve come to the wrong place. Why are you telling me?" Mr. Cohen says, "Are you kidding me? At my age, I’m telling everybody!"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A couple was shopping at the mall on Black Friday and the mall was packed. As the wife walked through the mall she was surprised to look up and see her husband was nowhere around.
She was quite upset because they had a lot to do. Because she was so worried, she called him on her mobile phone to ask him were he was.
In a calm voice, her husband said, "Honey, you remember the jewelry store we went into about 5 years ago where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we couldn't afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?"
The wife choked up and started to cry and said, "Yes, I remember that jewelry store. He said, "Well, I'm in the bar right next to it."
A drunk that smelled like a brewery got on a bus one day. He sat down next to a priest. The drunk's shirt was stained and he had a half empty bottle of wine sticking out of his pocket. He opened his newspaper and started reading.
A couple of minutes later, he asked the priest, "Father, what causes arthritis?" The priest replied, "Mister, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and contempt for your fellow man. The drunk muttered. "Well, I'll be dammed" and returned to reading his paper.
The priest, thinking about what he said, turned to the man and apologized. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" The drunk answered, "I don't have arthritis, Father, but I just read in the paper that the Pope has it."
That's it for today, my little mall rats. Remember ladies, the next time you're at Happy Hour and some dumb ass asks, "Haven't I seen you somewhere before?", simply reply, "Yes, I'm the receptionist at the VD clinic." I'll be in AREA 51 tonight for happy hour.
Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
