Son Jeffrey baked a turkey cake. It looked so real I expected it to gobble

Another turkey has been gobbled, another Thanksgiving Day has turned into night – one that promises to be filled with extreme bloating and indigestion (did I really eat that second piece of pumpkin pie?) My laptop won’t fit on my lap. So instead of writing about Thanksgiving, I’m sending you a collection of my favorite thoughts about the day. Enjoy reading them while I head for the medicine cabinet and another round of Maalox.

I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts. ~Arnold Schwarzenegger

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

What did General Patton do on Thanksgiving?
He gave tanks.
