Gobble, Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

As you sit down with family and friends to celebrate this wonderful, food-filled holiday, please remember those who fear Thanksgiving more than any other day of the year: turkeys!

Yes, our delicious fall feast is the end result of the fowl massacre that precedes it. Each year, Americans raise and kill roughly 300 million “gobblers,” and more than 45 million are slaughtered for Thanksgiving.

In other words, “giving geese a chance” next year may not be the worst idea—at least where turkeys are concerned.

For now, though, I plan to gobble up some tasty turkey and to initiate the food coma that is destined to arrive later. Here’s wishing the same for you and yours!

Happy Turkey Day, folks!
