Thanksgiven & Black Friday

I am thankful that tofurky was better than expected. Ok, it wasn't exactly tofurky but rather Quorn Turk'y Roast.   It actually kinda tasted like turkey and had a consistency that wasn't too far off, especially when slathered in all the trimmings.  And I made some ginger garlic mashed potatoes that were money.  But the upside of the faux turkey was that when everyone was in a tryptophan coma, I was still awake.

Meanwhile, Black Friday is a reminder why the 1% will reign forever.  

Watching the people fight over Walmart crap, I was reminded of watching mindless carp fight for food.

From Down Vietnam, by way of Hue

PS: Since my faux turkey was made by a company that sounds like Quran, now is a perfect time to bring up the lunacy of the American Right Wing and their anti-Islamic rants.  Apparently, the rabid Muslim-haters like Pamela Geller and her ilk are incensed that Butterball turkeys are halal.  Sacrificed in the NAME OF ALLAH!  More like an issue sacrificed in the name of gobble.
