    I don’t drink beer; other than that, I’m with Rat today.

    @Sherlock Watson

    I’m not alcoholic either, but this rat (according to the Chinese zodiac) agrees.

    Alcohol makes other people tolerable.

    It’s been my experience that alcohol makes other people quite intolerable.

    They’re probably glad they only have to see Rat once a year… or twice?(Christmas?)

    Yes, I am definitely thankful for beer.

    I’m not an alcoholic.
    Alcoholics need to go to meetings.

    That’s either a very small turkey or a hummingbird.

    Yes, some people really do it. I was made to once, when a new gf included me in her family TGD dinner. It was somewhat unsettling to do it in front of strangers. My years as a performer helped. . ..

    No that unusual with church-going families.

    Besides, the longer they sermonize, the colder the turkey and stuffing get. Eat first, and give thanks for the meal after!

    On Thanksgiving Day, one should be able to make time to give thanks. It’s just that some of the family get too flowery and sound both insincere and pretentious. So, I see Rat’s point. Besides, family that one sees only once or twice a year are not that close, really, are they?

    I don’t care what you guys say, I like Rat! He’s my kind of nasty!

    I once started it at a T-day dinner as an exercise in irony (I live in Europe). I forgot that the 2 other Americans at the table were of a certain age and lacking in any sense of humour. They took it way too seriously.

    Actually a fairly common practice among loving, close-knit, emotionally stable, mature families – i.e. “hippies”.
