Thanksgiving is the first in a long series of eating engagements that mark the holiday period. Prepare yourself for the ultimate in gluttony, stuffing your body to the point of pain, drinking enough to finally tolerate extended exposure to your family, and then fitfully trying to sleep it all of before waking up in the morning to take advantage of the second great American pastime: Shopping. But let’s face it. Thanksgiving is not easy. If you are cooking, you are stressed; if you are attending a dinner, you worry that you don’t have a space/family/bird of your own; if you are with family, then, well, that can be a whole other bird to stuff, so to speak.
So, hey. You deserve a break. Let’s remind ourselves what Thanksgiving is about, which is: Silly images on the internet, played on repeat ad nauseum.
