As God Is My Witness...

It's that time of year again, yes, the day when Les Nessman rises from the ashes like Lazarus to be our Thanksgiving Day filler. Well, Les, Big Guy, Dr. Johnny Fever, and the whole gang at WKRP, in what is my favorite Thanksgiving episode of television ever.

This is either the fifth or sixth time we have used this iconic scene on Turkey Day, making it the most frequently recurring bit outside of Gheorghemas.

Which reminds me...time for the GTBers to get to work on those 12 glorious days.


Enjoy your day of gluttony and gridiron games, and perhaps revel us with some tales of holiday hi-jinx in the comments section.

Jan Smithers is underrated hot.

Hunter Seacat could play for the Nicks. Fouled out yesterday with 3 points in 14 min of play.

Hola Gheorghies

Marls said...

Hola The Teej.

zman said...

Challah.

rob said...

thankful for you, gheorgies. you're aces.

Mark said...

New Thanksgiving plan for me. I'm eschewing most of the traditional foods during dinner and loading up on appetizers and desserts. I'll then bring home leftover turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes for later tonight and this weekend.

Speaking of tonight, who's excited for the Battle of I-4 (USF-UCF)? Yeah, me too. Bet heavy on USF would be my advice.

zman said...

I've already eaten five pounds of cholesterol.

rob said...

the pug got robbed at the american dog show

Marls said...

Chip Kelly is coaching like he wants the LSU job.

rob said...

anyone used amazon's fire stick? reviews?

zman said...

Eddie Murphy has a bit about that.

mayhugh said...

A burst of flame shoot out my dick when I pee...

Spending Tgiving on West Coast - football at 9:30, Iggles getting demolished, it's a great day so far.

zman said...

It's time for the story about JFK Jr. beating his dog in Central Park. It's like Groundhog Day in zhome.

T.J. said...

It's just me, Jess, and Shannon for turkey day. No other people. No distractions. The champagne is flowing. It is glorious.

Danimal said...

I'm in my man cave, aka the garage watching one of chip Kelly's last games in the nfl, smoking a large cigar, and strengthening my wine buzz. Oh...listening to Johnny Cash radio. Can't forget that. thankful for lots including you ducks. That was autocorrect...I actually tried typing bucks.
It's 75 degrees. I wish it was 55. Not complaining tho.

Mark said...

This is the large family Thanksgiving we get every other year. We'll be pushing 20 people shortly. It's at my sister's house though so I can leave and enjoy the quiet of my house after dinner. Good times.

Also, my brother in law wrapped a turkey in bacon so I've got that going for me.

zman said...

The only reasonable explanation for the state of zbathroom is that zson and zfather-in-law are competing to see who can leave more piss on the floor.

mr kq said...

May have to stream WIP tomorrow.

Just cracked a Sculpin, it never gets old. Cheers all!

Danimal said...

romo bad

Danimal said...

Shlaras guests need to turn on the heat. Other than that nice joint.

Danimal said...

Just tripled down on Cowboys for 2nd half. I'm thankful for online betting.

TR said...

Happy turkey day, fockers. We navigated snow to get a family day in at A-Basin. All was good until the 8 y/o had some altitude-induced vomiting in the early afternoon. Folks in Colorado are friendly as hell. And I ate all kinds of delicious game last night.

T.J. said...

Don't forget our gummy bears, TR

T.J. said...

Danimal's cross-platform 5:53 joke made me laugh quite a bit

Whitney said...

So my comment from yesterday "Dallas is favored by 2??????" proved to be not entirely ignorant.

mr kq said...

I agree Whit that was totes lock of the year. Unless I had a G on it then Romo would have flinged a behind the back pass Sonny J style to bad beat me down.

rob said...

i second tj's sentiment from 7:06 about danimal's comment at 5:53. that picture made me laugh.

rob said...

also, i'm going to barf

Mark said...

I was pretty good until dessert came along. Two pumpkin spice and cream cheese icing cookie sandwiches. A large slice of chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Another large slice of brownie pie and a little bit of blueberry cobbler pie.

I've brought more of all that home plus cherry pie and apple pie, a different pecan pie, pumpkin cheesecake and peanut butter cup pie. Diabetes here I come.

TR said...

T-giving dinner w/ family at a Denver restaurant was mostly fun and a little sad (seeing weird families and/or folks eating alone).

But I'd never yet brought port into the mix after a gluttonous meal. That was kinda nice.

Mark said...

I played in a basketball tournament in Savannah my freshman year of college. We ate Thanksgiving dinner at Outback. I second TR's thoughts on the weird sadness of Thanksgiving dinners at restaurants.

Danimal said...

Hosts....sorry. No apostrophe either. 'Twas over served. Significantly.

Dave said...

i was always a bailey fan too, marls. way hotter than loni anderson, who just looked weird and plastic on that show . . .

Whitney said...

Happy DAT (Day After Thanksgiving) to my pals at Gheorghies, Inc. True DAT.

Chilling in the Hamptons for another 24. This evening we go to Alec Baldwin's cocktail soirée. Wish I'd watched more 30 Rock. Only knowing Beetlejuice and Schweddy Balls leaves me at a disadvantage. Like Mitch Hedberg's bit on Peter Frampton (called "Movie Pot" for Googlers who like laughing).

Tomorrow Random Idiots reunites in NJ. You knew it was large.

rob said...

you could walk around saying, 'i *am* god'. someone would get it. after they threw you put on your ear.

Danimal said...

Or, "what's my name? Fuck you. That's my name."

Danimal said...

Must watch before tonight.

Whitney said...

I stand corrected. I saw Malice. And some others. And in college I took Beginning Acting and scored a rare A for my rendition of Shelley "The Machine" Levene in Glengarry Glen Ross.

TR said...

I loved Loni. And I liked Ginger over Maryann. So bite me if you disagree.

TR said...

You Bruce nerds may be interested in knowing HBO is showing a doc on the making of Springsteen's The River album tonight. Get some.

Dave said...

i wouldn't expect anything less of you, TR.

THE alec baldwin? or alex baldwin . . . the plumber/handy-man . . .

Marls said...

John Voight's LeBaron

zman said...

With the ASSMAN license plate.

Danimal said...

My afternoon hAndover induced creation: sea salt flavored potato chips with cheddar cheese on top, nuked for about 30 seconds, further topped with blue cheese dressing, bacon salt, and tobasco sauce. It's a solid 3 out of 4 stars.

Danimal said...

Hangover!

Mark said...

That sounds delicious, Dan. I might have to try it.

The Swedish AND Norwegian crew teams are back in town and, unfortunately, at my gym. Had to be 40 of them in the weight room this morning. I'm sure they're all nice people but I hate them and I want them to go away.

zman said...

zwoman made a loaded baked potato dip for chips yesterday. Diced bacon and chives; shredded cheddar; all mixed into sour cream. I made the bacon.

rob said...

we're not even out of november, and the caa has beaten north carolina state (w&m), #15 miami (northeastern), florida state (hofstra), and richmond (jmu). if the league's best teams take care of the littles in conference, #2bids4caa is in play.

Dave said...

catherine made an appetizer called "maple caramel bacon crack."

Whitney said...

Alec Baldwin was cool and spoke to the small crowd on behalf of the daycare center that was the purpose of the gathering. I didn't engage him in anything more than a nod and a smile. That's just the way I am.

rob said...

wink and a nod? say no more.

rob said...

sitting with my wife and her sister while they make plans for our families to travel together over spring break. apparently i do not have a telepathic connection to my wife, as she seems not be getting my mental message that there's no way in hell i'm doing that.

rob said...

steph has 19 points and 6 assists. after one quarter.

TR said...

Winnipeg Jets at Colorado Avalanche tmrw night. Team TR is going, as our kids have become big hockey fans. Will be up there on my list of most random pro sports games I have seen.

TR said...

The Golden State box score Early in the 3rd is just plain stupid: 77 pts, 15 of 22 from three.

rob said...

went to a mighty ducks/blues game on a work trip many years ago. that was random.

zman said...

Padres/Dbacks.
