"This Thanksgiving I'm going to stop eating when I'm full"
- Said by nobody, ever
"This Thanksgiving, I hope you are able to avoid the tragedy of the foods on the plate touching each other."
- Said by nobody, ever
"Shot my first turkey today. It shocked the crap out of everyone in the frozen food section. It was awesome!"

"Black Friday? Don't you think it ironic that Americans spend the most money on new things the day after being thankful for what they already have?"
- anon
"The thing I'm most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day is elastic waist bands."
