THANKSGIVING, n. 1) A day on which thanks are given that that bloated, python-digesting-a-deer feeling will soon pass, and that the day will not recur for another year; 2) A five-course family feast consisting of boredom, tension, anger, recriminations, and guilt, held under the pretense of picking over the carcass of a murdered bird.
