FoxTrot by Bill Amend for November 18, 2001
Peter: Mom, we are having turkey for Thanksgiving, right? Mom: You've asked me that four times now, Peter. Peter: I know, but sometimes you go all tofu-happy, and I just want to be sure you aren't planning to serve us some gross and disgusting veggie meal instead. Andy: No, Peter, you'll be eating a real, honest-to-goodness dead turkey this Thursday. It's head chopped off, it's blood drained out, it's feathers yanked off, it's organs pulled out, it's cooked flesh cut and picked from it's bones and put on our dinner table, all for the benefit of your little taste buds. No, siree, there'll be nothing "gross and disgusting" served in this house. Peter: Woohoo! Thanks! Andy: Why do I even bother with sarcasm?
