Okay, I think it's near-impossible on Thanksgiving to not post this classic by Stan Freberg, from his great Stan Freberg Presents the United States of America.
Here is his version of how Thanksgiving actually came about.
It begins with the local mayor decided a bit of self-promotion would help him if he threw a big gala and invited some Indians to show what a great guy he was. Which leads to a Freberg gem, "Take an Indian to Lunch."
And then comes the glorious day of the Big Meal itself. Which apparently turns out to be that it almost wasn't so big...
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
