What I am thankful for

Friends and Family, first and foremost.


But after that comes Humor!!


Specifically,

1. Monty Python:







Monty Python "What have The Romans ever Done for Us?"

and

2. Firesign Theater:







Bet you didn't know Firesign Theater was currently posting new zanies on youtube:

Firesign Theater's Revenge of the NonSmokers

One of the schticks Firesign Theater did on one of their albums (back in the day) was "Beat the Reaper." A contestant was injected with some sort of dreadful, fatal illness and if he identified the disease in time he was given the antidote. If not, well, then he lost.... Sort of like the tv show, House, MD today, but quicker and with a bit more humor.

And of course, because it is Thanksgiving, I am reprising my turkey recipe.




Have a relaxing holiday with your loved ones. And don't forget the pope's nose!

Deconstruction always works for me. Firesign Theater was a big influence on these guys, but then again, so were Kukla, Fran and Ollie:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUPXVtFcl5U
