Happy Thanksgiving!

Someone who goes under-appreciated during this time of year is the person who invented Thanksgiving. He must have thought to himself, "Thanksgiving Thursday will be a holiday to celebrate all the gifts we have." What a great idea. He recognized the strife of the pilgrims and the kindness shown to them by the Native Americans. He acknowledged the need to be thankful for our blessings. And perhaps most importantly, he essentially guaranteed that we get a four day weekend.


  1. Google didn't tell me who invented Thanksgiving, but it did tell me to be thankful for the late Ruth M. Siems who invented stuffing. Yum!

  2. Hey White Folks! "Thanksgiving" right? Basically my people saved the unprepared pilgrims who came to a new land in winter with no food, and of course no harvest since they didn't plant anything. So for the good of humanity, we brought some Turkey, potatoes, corn, and STUFFING (only the white history books credit our dish to Ruth M. Seims) and shared. Where was the Sharing from your people when you decided to wipe out an entire race? If only our elders had been as heartless as the Europeans, we might have more than 3,000 of our kind still alive. Hey at least we get the respect of being the mascots of your sports teams. Enjoy your nap white people, and be sure to cheer for the Cowboys to beat the Redskins! Jerks.

  3. What Native American was responsible for Thanksgiving?
