Friday Wisdom – Thanksgiving

Here in the US, yesterday was Thanksgiving and the official over eating day. Today is the official, “Why did I eat that much yesterday day.” So here is what I know about Thanksgiving:

What sport do pumpkins like? Squash.

Just read that they arrested a turkey. It was suspected of fowl play.

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

They wouldn’t let me take my turkey to church – they said it used fowl language.

I’ve been told to stop telling Thanksgiving jokes, but I can’t just quite cold turkey.

And what is the turkey’s favorite month? Any one except November.

They let the turkey join the band as a drummer – well he had his own drumsticks.

Turkeys don’t eat dinner, because they’re always stuffed.

What key can’t open locks? A tur-key.

What did Luke Skywalker say on Thanksgiving? Let the forks be with you.

Turkey soup is very expensive because it’s 24 carrots.

The turkey’s political statement: Liberty, Equality and Bad Aim for all.

    I liked the turkey’s political statement 😊 . Thanksgiving and turkey go together. There must be a story behind it. Here too there are many festivals when people prepare the same delicacies every year. For the rituals of death anniversaries, certain dishes have to be prepared and most of us don’t know why they have to be prepared but they are made. 😊

    I really like the one about “fowl play”. Over here, turkey is the traditional meat for Christmas dinner.
