Thanksgiving: Mucho Thank-O

Happy Thanksgiving!!

As I type this, I am drinking some joe and chuckling at Schmoop’s bed head.

I have to work 10 A.M.-2 P.M. in order to make sure that the Bagwine pilgrims and pilgirlz have plenty of ale on hand with which to wash down their fowl.

I mentioned yesterday, that our Bagwine T-Day feast will consist of some type of fast food this year. Pizza was high on the list of probable choices.

Well last night, Pizza Bill stopped by work and dropped off a hefty amount of leftovers of his fan-damn-tastic pizza so we ate much of that last night. (Thank you very much by the way, Mr. Bill.) Thusly, no pizza today, well…I’m sure we’ll finish Bill’s up, but you know…

So, I think our Thanksgiving feast may consist of an array of delicacies from Taco Bell. That’s right, an American tradition celebrated with fast food ala Mexico.

It does make sense in a way. Just think…

If today was the first time that the pilgrims and Indians were gathering for a friendly feast to celebrate good will and the abundance of their harvest, who is it that would have harvested the crops?

Damn right…Migrant Mexican vegetable pickers. “Tote thy okra and load yonder maize, Paco. Here’s a dram of Sorghum for your troubles!!”

See…there is a connection…or something. Anyhoo…

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. In order to help you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast even more, please remember this:

When you scoop up a big spoonful of cranberries, look closely at them. Tell me they don’t look like hemorrhoids. Uh-huh. Food for thought from the Matt-Man.

Enjoy folks, and…

It makes perfect sense to me. Before the pilgrims ever plundered the new world, the Spanish did. And before they plundered what is now America, they plundered what is now South and Central America and had multiple orgasms with the native Indian women. Thus producing a steady and reliable work force (as well as some really fucking entertaining variety shows) for the white, white man.

Wait… Ok, you should be eating Spanish, not Mexican.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Scott: You make a good point. I'll make sure to pick up a jar of olives and whip up a big pitcher of Sangria as well. Cheers Scott!!

Not only would they harvest the crops, but they'd be in the back doing dishes AND keeping the lawn looking nice!

Enjoy your 4h meal ...

A couple of double cheezy burittos flanked by a couple of hard tacos then maybe a soft taco set up on top and by golly it would LOOK like a bird.
Have a great day Bagwiners!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: Those Mexicans are cooll that way. Multi-Faceted, even. Ha. 4-H? It was founded right here in Bagwine. No, I'm not kidding. Happy Thanksgiving Dana. Cheers!!

Micky: You have set me my wheels in motion. If I can pull that look off there will be pictures. Happy T-Day to you and Bic. Cheers Mick!!

Michele said...

You have a Happy one.

Matt-Man said...

Michele: Same to you and JR. Mangia. Cheers Michele!!

“Tote thy okra and load yonder maize, Paco."

That made me laugh out loud. Good start to my day.

Cheers Matt-Man. All the best to you and Schmoop today.

Mucho Thank-O. Pilgirlz. Ha!
(Sweet Jeebus)
I'm thankful for your way with words. It never fails to give me a chuckle, and expand my vocabulary.

And I agree with Mic'; with your imagination there's got to be a Taco Bird™ in that bag somewhere.
...I hear mother's everywhere saying, "don't play with your food" LOL

My best to you, Schmoop & Corky
Happy Taco Day !

Yo quiero Taco Bell!

Funny, my favorite Taco Bell meal is the #9 Crunchwrap Supreme. Go figure!

Happy Thanksgiving Matt-man!
