Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving folks! Today’s post is postponed due to laziness and family related activities. Also, I need a better Thanksgiving meme to post here. In the meantime here is the good old Sesame Street one:


Happy shopping tomorrow! I’m sleeping in – fuck Black Friday.

Hmm… I guess I owe a word of explanation to my international viewers. You probably know what Thanksgiving is, but if you didn’t I just linked to a wiki entry that should explain it. Black Friday on the other hand is the traditional first day of the Christmas shopping season and most US stores like to do major promotional sales to attract shoppers. A lot of people get up at 4AM or earlier hunt for best deals and beat the crowds. In other word madness!

Madness? This is Spartaaaa!

That’s why I’m sleeping in – I don’t want to get kicked in the chest by a sales hungry housewife.

Anyways, we shall return to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow!

    By the way, happy Thanksgiving to you Luke, a bit late, I know. We Europeans don’t realize sometimes how important it is for you guys… ;-)

    @Alphast: Well, it’s a nice family holiday. Also it is the only holiday that is observed by ALL US residents. Christmas is big, but you have to keep in mind that non-Christians don’t observe it. So Thanksgiving is something we all share.

    In my family Christmas is still a bigger deal – but we are all immigrants. It’s much more important for people who were born here and grew up with it. :)

    Oh, and we get the day off – or two. Can’t argue with that!

    Well, it all makes sense indeed… :-) I had forgotten the secularism aspect of it of course. It’s a shame we don’t have a day like that here. I mean Christians and Jewish have Christmas and Hanoeka about at the same time, but Muslims have a moving calendar and the (more) numerous atheists have nothing at all. Maybe we should propose some European wide religious independent holiday.

    @ dan reynolds:

    Dan, for future reference please consider the following:

    – Direct email is better than public comments for this sort of thing
    – You should be using an email associated with reynoldsunwrapped.com rather than generic hotmail
    – It’s probably not a good idea to publicize your email in plain text in a public comment thread

    Anyone can make a hotmail account and claim to be owner of a cartoon. If you send an email from the same address listed on your website it adds legitimacy to the request.

    But to show I treat absolutely pointless, brand destroying and fan alienating copyright posturing motions very seriously I have removed the image in question. Thanks, and have a wonderful day.
