If you stand in the meat section at the grocery store long enough, you start to get mad at turkeys. There’s turkey ham, turkey bologna, turkey pastrami. Someone needs to tell the turkey, man, just be yourself.”

—Mitch Hedberg

Once again, Thanksgiving is upon us. So, no Zatoichi post this Thursday—we’ll return to that in December. For now, some reruns:

1) “To hell with Turkey Day” (2006), on the possibilities of better Thanksgiving food.

2) “Pieces of April” (2007), on one of my favorite Thanksgiving movies.

and to lead into the Christmas season, here’s my 2005 post on one of the few Christmas songs that I adore: John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (War Is Over).

See you next week, kiddos.
