poodebunker: Cake Hunter: It was on this date in 1492 when Jesus accidentally resurrected himself as a turkey. It's tradition to give thanks that he got back to work and tried again a few months later and got it right. The turkey represents his body, and since the pilgrims didn't drink alcohol, they got the next best thing to represent his blood: cranberry sauce."Black Friday" was Judas' nickname, so we celebrate by losing our sh*t and trampling other people for a sweet deal on this one TV they've got.Aaaaak! Now it just dawned on me...I'm roasting jeebus in my oven! :0
