First a word from our sponsors: The admins here (two lovely and frightfully smart ladies) and me, the village idiot, are going to suspend the normal political diatribes until after the holiday. We will, however, bring you some special features.
I’d like to express for myself, and quite probably my buddies here, my profound thanks to all of you for stopping here. We don’t have a donation button or beg-a-thons like some sites. We do this as a public service and because we enjoy it. It is gratifying to know that so many of you feel we are worthy of a little bit of your time.
OK, now the fun stuff.
Many television shows have produced episodes to coincide with holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
WKRP in Cincinnati was a 70s sitcom with an excellent ensemble cast. The following is one of the funniest bits ever filmed. No doubt most of you have seen it, but maybe it’s been a while. It will be the best 4 minutes you’ll spend today listening to Les Nessman describe the carnage as the turkeys go splat on the pavement.
Cheers was another funny scene. Poor Norm.

MADtv – Dot’s Thanksgiving Play (I REALLY ENJOYED MADtv)
DeNIRO AND CRYSTAL… TWO SCREAMING LIBS, BUT PRETTY FUNNY TOGETHER
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING TRULY BIZARRE
The Muppets Audition for The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
MY GRANDPARENTS GOT A COLOR TV ON OCT. 4, 1964 (it was my sister’s birthday).
I REMEMBER WATCHING THE MACY’S PARADE IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS AMAZING.
Red Skelton was a comic genius and a real American original. In 1952 he addressed his audience this way:
A Thanksgiving Day Message From Red Skelton from 1952
On the day before Thanksgiving every year Rush Limbaugh relates the story of the true meaning of Thanksgiving. It was all about the abject failure of socialism and the power of capitalism.You’re probably familiar with it, but here is the transcript and the audio.
Rush Limbaugh has made it an annual tradition to take a moment before the holiday to tell “the true story of Thanksgiving,” a holiday about which many of the historical facts are often left out and much of the true meaning has been lost in the simplified and politically correct version of the tale. The true story, he explains, highlights the faith and courage of the Pilgrims, the partnership between the settlers and the Native Americans, the failure of socialism and the power of free enterprise.
I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DIDN’T GIVE THANKS TO ALMIGHTY GOD FOR DELIVERING US FROM LIBERAL TYRANNY AND GIVING US A PRESIDENT WHO WORSHIPS HIM AND NOT A FALSE IDOL.
First Lady Melania Trump Receives the White House Christmas Tree
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to Him.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
