Thursday Wisdom – Thanksgiving

Here in the states, it’s Thanksgiving day and many of us are getting ready to overeat and hang out with family and friends. I was going to post an after Thanksgiving day report, but my neighbors have already started to put up their Christmas lights so I’ll be out early trying to compete with them and won’t be on the computer. Well, here we go, everything about turkey day:

Interesting fact – Thanksgiving is not celebrated in the county of Turkey.

Just read that the police arrested a turkey, it’s suspected of fowl play.

My wife has asked me to stop telling Thanksgiving jokes, but I told her I couldn’t quit “cold turkey.”

You know you’ve had too much Thanksgiving dinner when you have to let your bathrobe out.

Did you hear that the turkey joined the band? Well, it already had drumsticks.

Which side of the turkey has the most feathers? The outside …

Why are cranberries red? They saw the turkey dressing.

The turkey ask for a glass of wine, so I gave it a goblet.

Remember, life’s a gourd, and then you pie.

Did you know turkeys can jump higher than a house? Yup, houses can’t jump.

Remember to set your bathroom scale back 10 pounds for Thanksgiving.

The pastor has asked me to stop bringing my turkey to church – it keeps using fowl language.

Last year on my way home from Thanksgiving I got pulled over by a cop. Apparently I exceeded my feed limit.

Finally, there is always something to thankful for on Thanksgiving – even if it’s just not being the turkey.
