The true story of the first Thanksgiving

In 1492, Ferdinand, the King of Saipan, was thirsty for spices, having issued his “FUCK SALT!” edict after his Southern Baptist hordes had driven the Moors out of wherever the hell they’d been for a while.  France,  probably.

Wait, can you technically be thirsty for spices?  I mean, I guess you could be thirsty for spiced rum, but that’s different.  Let’s just say he wanted spices because the ones he had were getting old.

Pictured: Ferdy’s spice jar

Anyway, Ferdinand decided to send Christopher Columbus to Burma for some new spices, and perhaps for some Burma Shave.  So, Chris set out on the Mayflower, the Piñata, and the Titanic.

Problem was that Chris Columbus, while fairly competent in his capacity as the director of Harry Potter movies (I’m told), didn’t have a lot of experience with navigating, so he set out in the wrong direction, eventually crashing into Plymouth Rock, which was apparently named after a local car dealership or something.  Incidentally, Leonardo DaVincio died during the shipwreck.

Chris and his crew of Puritan Spanglish Lutherans searched the area for anything spicy and even kicked the dirt a little bit to see if they could find any gold nuggets lying around, but didn’t find much of anything.  However, they had brought their busty Filipina wives along, and when they suggested going back to Saipan, the wives said they were sick of a certain diving instructor’s sexual advances, so they decided to stay put.

Times were tough for the first few months, but there was a bunch of grass they could eat, and only seventy percent of them died.  The rest of them found ways to survive, mostly through unspeakable acts which we won’t, um, speak about here.  Incidentally, Teddy Kennedy was born around that time, and served in the Senate until his recent death.

Then, one day, a mysterious, dusky figure showed up at the edge of their settlement, which they had built out of the sails and masts they had salvaged from the wreck of the Enterprise.  He was an Indian named Tushquo, and, amazingly enough, he spoke English, having worked at a call center in Bangalore for several years.

Tushquo helped Chris and the settlers, who became known as “Pilgrims” for some reason that has been lost in the mists of time and alcohol, to learn how to stop eating grass and become  successful turkey farmers.  He also taught them how to make mashed potatoes, stuffing (and/or the traditional “dressing” that neighboring Hindu sects preferred), and that green bean casserole that people to this day pick the fried onions off of.  Oh, and a really good giblet gravy, too.  He also proved to be a fashion innovator (though an unacknowledged one) by starting the whole belt-buckle-on-your-hat thing.

Chris and the Spanish Orthodox Presbyterians were so thankful that they invited Tushquo and his people to a dinner of turkey curry, Tandoori turkey, naan, and firewater.  Tushquo and his wife, Pocahontas, brought the dinner rolls.  Pocahontas would later become the subject of the wildly successful Walt Disney animated feature “Pinocchio.” Somehow, this became the first “Thanksgiving.” This is also why people write “first” or some variation thereof on blog threads and/or lavatory/massage parlor walls.

This was a defining moment in the history of America, as the Native people and Eurotrash sat down together, especially since the following years would see unending conflict, but the fusion of the two cultures would eventually result in this…

The Sacagawea Dollar coin is the culmination of all of this, somehow.  Enjoy your postage stamps!

UPDATE: Also, enjoy the time you’re able to spend with your (WHITE, GENOCIDAL!!!!!) families.  When you’re participating in the traditional exchange of Sacagawea Dollars, make sure to give thanks for the real stuff that we sit down and honor today.

(If a family member asks you to pass the salt and you’re tempted to mutter something profane, you can probably be forgiven.)

UPDATE 2: President Barack Obama decided this was a big deal, and declared Thursday, November 26,  “Thanksgiving Day.”  It was unprecedented.

UPDATE 3: (SOX) This commemt was posted at the “Mother Ship”.  It seems appropriate….

  2. This is the worst Thanksgiving EVAR!!!!!

    I blame Tushquo.

  3. No, I had a two friends shot on a Thanksgiving, one who lost a leg. And it snowed. I’d say that one was worse.

  4. And you get on my ass for writing multipage treatises?

    Hypocrite much?

  5. And you throw in a pic of Chief Shitting Bull, of the Unrepentant Liars tribe???

    The thing is that this was important. It helps to educate the children.

    You can see how that’s different, right?

    Oh. You mean like teaching them how we didn’t give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, or how the deltas didn’t give up when they were on double secret probation, right?

    Yeah. You can still take a sweet suck on X-Brad’s taint.

  8. Oh. You mean like teaching them how we didn’t give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, or how the deltas didn’t give up when they were on double secret probation, right?

    Um, since you’re rolling, what is your point, exactly?

  9. Thanks, PA for doing HHD. It was niiice. Even if I didn’t see it until this morning.

    Happy t-day.

    My brother is bringing friends over to my house, while I go to my sisters for dinner. Interesting, no?

    My dad is eating with them, and I’m with sis and mom.

    SOOOO – question; last year, I got back from Thanksgiving, and they (and friends) we just sitting around with the dinner mess.

    So, I started doing the dishes.

    And they just WATCHED.

  10. Oh, the Q:

    Will they do it again?

    will the house be a mess when I get home?

    Will they leave the mess for me?

    All these questions will be answered later tonight.

    (my sil – wife’s brother – is one of the laziest people I know, but she’s not lazy, she’s got fibromyalgia, you see, which means she has to go lie down a LOT and sit on her ass while other people serve her>.)

    Oh, you know what? I’m incorrect. That incident happened two years ago. LAST year, my sister come here ( I went to MIL’s house) and my SISTER did all the clean up alone.

    While my brother’s wife played her new PS3 in front of my 17 y/o nephew and didn’t allow him to play ALL DAY.

    Or let my dad watch tv/ football.

  11. So, I started doing the dishes.

    And they just WATCHED.

    Um, shyness is nice, but…

  16. Last Sunday I spent most of the day cooking with my sister and mother.

    I always feel badly that I don’t spend much time with my sister. Because of stuff that happened in the past that I’m still kind of pissed about.
    You ever spend time with someone, and suddenly realize in the midst of it why you never spend time with them?

    Yeah.
    She’s got a couple of great kids and I would love to be closer but my ‘tude ain’t there yet. When we’re together she makes me need to walk outdoors and vent fire from my fucking eyesockets sometimes.

    Ok, time to frost a couple cakes.

    You folks have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Happy New Year!

    Oh BTW, she’s single, and a real catch. Good person. Just not to me.

  22. Oh, Sean, you know I love the Smiths.

    You know what? I shouldn’t have to ask them to help me clean up THEIR mess.

    A meal I didn’t eat.

    I honestly thought the sight of me cleaning up would prompt them into action. Nope.

    “Their plan” was to clean it up in the morning.

    Not in my house. Shit, I wake up HOURS before them.

  23. Forrester, yes, I think it is a bit too early to start drinking.

    I’ve been cleaning for a few hours myself (mind you, I’m not going to be HERE, I’m cleaning for my dad who is having my brother and their friends over -@@), but no cooking.

    I baked my pie yesterday. Oh, it looks yummy. Rum in it. I’ll let you know how it tastes.

    INVITED ME.

    I got an INVITE.

    If my sil has a screen name, I don’t know it. Although I’ve suspected … Ocean Cat.

    This is why Lauraw is so funny. The Portuguese here are the smiliest, jokiest, good natured group. When I taught predominately Portuguese kids, it was a laugh fest every day. They always have a joke and big gorgeous smiles.

  70. I’m thankful for too many things to list but near the top of the list is the mirth everyone here brings to my life and that I count you all amongst my great friends.

    Of course not, its just the internets stupid, nothings ever personal. That was fun.

    You know whats not fun? Having to go eat turkey over at the mil’s with a raging hang over. *blech*

    By the way, Happy Thanksgiving Hotsausages.

  158. Happy Turducken Day, Blaze.

  159. Clint, perfect Thanksgiving weather here. How’s the OP?

  160. Car in does the dishes:

    HA ha ahhaa …

    if only.

  161. Thank you Rosetta, you too and God bless.

  162. Stick around a while, Sox. No cats will be skinned in the making of today’s train wreck.

    I’m not too worried about DinT. Anybody that goes 2 for 10 on Cheerleader pics…..

    Now if that was Ms. PattyAnn, we would have “Lunar Safe Couch”…..

  170. Beasn’s tip of the day. Do NOT get one of those sticky lint brushes caught in your hair.

    True, but I did just learn yesterday that they are excellent for dusting lampshades.

  171. hmm…will have to give that a try xbrad.

    The lintbrush did not get in my hair by accident. It was put there by beasnson.

    He knows I will strike back when he least expects it.

    Off to take my pie outta da oven and get ready for the in-laws. Have a good day all.

  179. Since when do they let cats drive?

    Right after I got the Expense Account. Gonna take lessons from Wiser and Wiserbud on how to work the system….

  180. SeaNm, did you notice the Important Update?

  181. Sean, you ignorant piece of offal, didn’t you ever watch Toonces on SNL?

  182. **hands fur-spreader some chicken skins… and a wee bit of real chicken**

    I appreciate that. Uh… about that Dead Hookers and Blow thing, I’m kinda new at this. Are they supposed to wiggle? And does that go under “Entertainment”, or “Hotel Expenses”?

  183. Hookers are a hotel expense. Blow generally comes under entertainment, but you gotta justify it with a client (name, organization, title, etc).

    Trust me, I’ve done LOTS of expense reports.

  184. Yeah, cat, I saw the update.

    And, yes, b-rad, I saw just about every episode of Toonces. I thought that was why cats couldn’t drive. Derr.

  185. Trust me, I’ve done LOTS of expense reports.

    *** Rips up Forms ***

    Got any more Blanks?

  186. I didn’t say Sox could drive well.

    Besides, he’s not on my insurance, so why would I give a fuck.

    Sox, there’s an iPhone app for expense reports. Probably.

  187. *comes out of lurking*

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    *goes back to lurking*

  188. Cats can drive almost as good as most women. We just don’t apply make-up whilst driving all that well…..

    What? Just because there’s a dead hooker in my trunk? She could have climbed in there all by herself and suffocated.

    Poor girl.

  217. “have you ever been covered in Cheeto Dust?”

    No. I can safely say that I have never been covered in Cheeto Dust.

  218. have you ever been covered in Cheeto Dust?

    Have you ever been in a Turkish prison?

  219. No. I can safely say that I have never been covered in Cheeto Dust.

    Well, Drat. We were hoping to have someone give Ms. NiceDeb a run for her money in that category. How do you feel about beating Far Eastern Scuba Instructors? We may have a job for you…..

    No? That would make a great theme on your next modeling excursion.

    That and World of Warcraft.

    Because the last time I just happened to find myself covered in Cheeto Dust, it was after playing a marathon session of………nevermind.

  263. See you later Ms. Skylia….

  264. I know some of my fellow Hostages are model train enthusiasts. There’s currently a model train feature at KC’s Union Station … worth the trip if you have the time and inclination, if for no other reason than it’s in KC’s Union Station. Bring cameras.

  270. the train in palm springs is pretty impressive. But every time i go to the liviing desert, it’s like hotter than hell, and I’m tired and ready to leave by the time I get to the trains.

  271. We go there for New Year’s when the weather is perfect … PERFECT. Especially considering the shitty MA weather we leave behind.

  272. It’s a beautiful day today. Very pleasant outside as I was grilling some chicken

  294. It was a happy Thanksgiving day accident, wherein Mr. Ember and I finished all the whiskey, our house guests showed up with strawberry vodka, and we just happened to have Sprite.

    Indeed!

    Was everybody’s turkey day good?

  311. You are wrong, sir. There is no such thing as too much vodka.

    I should have said too much vodka to do html.

  323. Naw, wasn’t worth the energy, forrester. I did say STFU in my head tho–made me giggle like a school girl.

    True story: there’s a lovely decorative salt and pepper shaker in front of me. I pick up the pepper and use it on my rice noodles; perfect. The salt shaker however released about three grains of salt at a time. I keep shaking and shaking and shaking.

  349. LOL Blazer….

  350. Totally off topic (heh) Stupid question alert!
    I bought a country ham a few months ago. I was hoping it was like a big prosciutto, but all the recipes I see say to soak and bake it.

    Any one care to comment? Give me some knowledge?

  351. Yeah, pretty tight game. The Aggies always play Texas tough.

  361. Any one care to comment? Give me some knowledge?

    Yeah, soak it and bake it. Soak it a long time. If that’s a true country him, it’s about fifty percent salt.

  362. Michael prepares his ham the same way he prepares his potatoes. He stuffs them in his bat cave, if you know what I’m saying

  363. Is it anything like a Smithfield ham? Cuz we used to soak those for a couple days before slicing and cooking.

  364. Heheh

  368. By the way, I vote deep frying the country ham. Won’t stay frozen long.

  369. Seriously, country hams are a product that was designed to preserve meat before refrigeration had been invented. They taste awful unless you soak them to leach out the salt and restore some hydration that they lost when they got shriveled up during the smoking process.

    Personally, I would not buy one again.

  370. Yeah, those hams are heavily salted and cured. If you don’t soak it, it’ll be inedible.

  377. Brad, I grew up with them too. I went to college at WKU in Bowling Green, KY. You couldn’t swing a dead cat (sorry Sox) without hitting a good place to buy country hams there. We even had a motel called the Country Ham Motel that had country hams for sale, hanging in its lobby … and they were damn good too.

  378. “Where do I subscribe to your newsletter kind madam ?

    Fried ham,…. my god , its full of stars.”

    I’ve learned a few things since I moved to the South. Actually, I’ve learned one thing since I moved to the South: anything can be fried, and everything is better when fried.

    Even bacon.

  379. It is not frozen it has been sitting in my pantry for 2 or 3 months. I hope I did not have to put it in my freezer!

    No, they are fine at room temp. That’s the whole point of smoking and curing them.

    That is true, but you need to understand that congealed greasy white glop with sausage chunks in it qualifies as “gravy.”

  457. Ms. Skylia, were you in Louisiana last year for the Hurricanes? We had to evacuate Morgan City for the first one, boats were chased off to Galveston Island. Went over there to run a couple of projects, and finish a couple we had started in Morgan City/ Port Fourchon. When we got done there, headed back to Morgan City. Then Ike scrubbed Galveston Island. Bolivar Peninsula is still tore up. Oddly, the oldest parts of Galveston weren’t that badly damaged. Strange….

    Yeah, it was our first hurricane, so we evacuated. Several of my stores were closed for a month – I have stores in Thibodeaux and Houma, and they were hit really, really hard. We were out of town for a week, then came back, then I flew to Vegas for work and that’s when Ike hit. Hardly any issues this far east, but one of my employees who lives in Jennings, LA had some pretty hardcore damage to his house. Tree fell on it.

  507. an “ice house” is a garage style bar that serves cold beer and football…

  508. Well, I’ll cross bridges as needed. I plan on moving back to the west coast in a year or two and will likely switch companies then.

    Good luck.

    Seriously, Sky, gaming has become a huge industry and the big money is moving in. A lot of people are realizing that the home-based console model does not make sense, Parking monster chips at every house in a PS-2 or XBox does not make sense, given the bandwidth that is coming online and the server farms that that can service the demand.

    I’m just sayin’, get out early.

  509. Michael, I’m amazed at how long it is taking Big Money to jump in. How much did the latest CoD haul in on opening?

    About half a billion. And most folks have never heard of it.

    But if a movie makes $100mm over its entire release, it counts as a blockbuster.

  510. Wow, crazy game.

  511. Oh that was a bad miss for A&M

    Give the Aggies credit for making it almost exciting.

  512. Full of turkey, stuffing, mashed taters, gravy, and champagne.

    Life is good.

  513. i love champagne

  514. Who serves flan for Thanksgiving dessert? W. T. F?

    RAAAAACIST!!!!!

  516. Give the Aggies credit? Yeah, thanks (you bastards).

    It was a good game

  517. Michael, I’m amazed at how long it is taking Big Money to jump in. How much did the latest CoD haul in on opening?

    Brad, it’s like this. The network is constantly scrambling to catch up with the bandwidth demands that are growing exponentially, even in this recession. That’s especially true for wireless data.

    Then, the network does not want to be a commodity, a mere pipe. So, the network tries to capture apps that are network-dependent.

    Consider Google. It’s a multi-billion dollar advertising business that is entirely netowrk-dependant, and the networks hate it. Then consider yellowpages.com, which is actually a major competitor of Google and is the #1 local search engine for businesses. It is owned by a network.

  518. What the fuck is this shit?

  519. STFU, Romy, and get me a drumstick.

    Michael, I wasn’t pondering the network/non-network aspect so much as the pop-culture aspect. Are there any big name actors that are doing video games? Not many. But with that much money floating around, don’t be surprised if they start doing it.

    Imma let you finish too.

  521. XBrad, there were four, count ’em, four teenage boys at Thanksgiving dinner. The only food left is a bit of green bean casserole and a scoop of candied sweet potatoes (they say yams up here).

  522. Brad, it’s like this…

    Jesus, Batbore, couldn’t you just quote some fucking Lutheran doctrine at us? I’m already sleepy from dinner.

  523. Jeebers, Brad, look at your local movie theatre. Gamers are spinning off Hollywood movies all the time.

  524. Jesus, Batbore, couldn’t you just quote some fucking Lutheran doctrine at us? I’m already sleepy from dinner.

    OK, take your pick.

    1, Sola sciptura.

    2. Sola fide.

    3. Sola gratia.

    Pick one and I’ll give you a lecture.

  525. 1. STFU
    2. New poat
    3. Michael is getting to be as interesting as BiW.

  526. ^

    OK, that was actually a false threat. I’m too stuffed with Thanksgiving Dinner to deliver on that. You are not going to get any Pure Lutheran Doctrine&*trade; from me tonight.
