So....what are you all thankful for during this family gathering, turkey slaughtering, face-gorging holiday season? Please leave all answers in the form of cliches.

Edit: Looks like PZ just gave me something to be thankful for. Namely, a moron being called out on his anti-atheist bull. Praise Athe!

I'm thankful that I don't live near mac because after reading his comment I think that he needs a hug.

I'm not sure how 'manly' he'd feel about me hugging him.

If you are 'man enough' to accept an 'ESP' hug(which I think that you need)...

... consider it(the ESP hug) on it's way!

Otherwise, umm.. hey.. have an ESP 'slug' on the shoulder 'big guy'.

One of those for you too Seeker! (sniff) I love you, sarg! (LOL)

ESP hugs? Sounds like something with a street value of $20.00 per gram. Or a variant on those individually wrapped Hershey's chocolate drop-things that sell for considerably less. But, I personally prefer astral projection handshakes (or cocaine, or Werther's originals for the alternate interpretations).

Anyway, those are some nice sentiments mac. Looks like it only took 15 or so minutes to get your gratitude attitude on.

Here's a rip-off(emulation) of 'Flight of the Conchords' tune.

It's called, "The stupidest way to die!"

Got up in the middle of the night yea.
A little hungry for some pumpkin pie, yeayea.

Using a knife that was a little bit, a little bit, yea, I said a little bit too much like a straight razor for anyone with any sparking brain-cells yea.

I flicked the pie off the aluminum foil tray that it comes on, comes on comes on..

.. but it stuck a little bit yes.. just a little, the 'Flight' guys from New Zealand seem to like the word 'little'.. LLLL ittttt..lllle.

But the slice of pie was a little bit heavier than I though and the knife pulled up a little too fast for me to stop slitting my own throat and bleeding out on the floor..

I said, "Huh?".. then I said, "Oooo!".. then I thought to myself, yes I thought to myself a little bit, "They're gonna LOL, I thought, "They're gonna ell oooo elllll on the internet, what that must be the stupidest way to die-aye-aye.. "

I'm thankful for pancakes. I saw a OLD couple at Bob Evans a coupla months ago, praying over some pancakes. It was all I could do to not bust out laughing.

"Bless O Lord, these thy pancakes to our use...."

LOL :o)

What am I thankful for? Hmmm, I am thankful for that fateful day millions of years ago when the amino acids mixed in the vast seas and formed the first living cells... If it hadn't been for that miraculous event, we wouldn't have Thanksgiving, life and the ability to pretend that we need to thank the creator that we created in our own minds...

Mandar Malum said...

Oh, and I am also thankful for Pirates... they have inspired some great stories!
