Feliz Dia de Accion de Gracias!

Hmmmmm, doesn’t that thing look appetizing! Yup, as every American knows and as most Peruvians are aware of, today is “Dia de Accion de Gracias” or Thanksgiving (the literal translation is “Day of the Action of giving thanks”…aren’t literal translations awesome!). On Dia de Accion de Gracias, Americans all over America sit down on their big fat American Asses and eat one of those big nasty birds that Benjamin Franklin (no relation) once suggested should be the national emblem.

I think old Ben-ha must have had his bifocals on upside-down that day, because the TURKEY is OBVIOUSLY not the kind of animal you’d name a nation after(or even a football team…are there any Turkey teams out there speaking of that? The New Orleans Turkeys…don’t exist? Just asking).

Obviously, in case you were wondering, we do kill these animals and stuff them full of stuffing (sometimes made up of turkeys, chickens, and maybe bread, butter, etc.). The actual killing process sometimes involves Sarah Palin (forward past the first 30 seconds or so of this video):

Terrifying! Happy Dia de Accion de Gracias Everybody! Especially my friends in Peru who are probably really missing me today since I always liked to throw big ridiculous parties in which I got really drunk and made a fool of myself much to everyone else’s amusement!

Go Packers! (and go Steelers, Eagles, Bengals, and Rams since those are all of my friend’s teams…but not Queens).

    Happy Turkey Day: Just cleaned up the mess. Broke wine bottles(dropped) all over the kitchen floor. Super wasted. Love Thanksgiving… only holiday in USA that we can just "Be". BEST HOLIDAY!
