Thanksgiving Cartoon

So I went to go see what I could come up with for Turkey Day. I found, to my great gratitude,  an embarrassment of riches. Mining Wikimedia is pretty awesome.  Too much to share for just one day!  First is this gorgeous cartoon, which reminds me of Bill Watterson at his best.  Just remember, The Nightmare Before Christmas wasn’t the first instance of a frankly scary non-Halloween holiday.  🙂 This illustration is a work of art!

Overstuffing on turkey seems  a little less appealing now, doesn’t it?  🙂  This was written in 1905.  Children had it rough back then. Now we know who to blame for the 50 Foot Woman and Godzilla. 🙂  I even feel better about approaching relatives after reading this!
