Minzey's Musings - This Week's Musings Are For the Birds
=========================================================
Here's a little humor from today's Michigan Golfer News:

Ode to Thanksgiving
To our national birds,
The American Eagle,
The Thanksgiving Turkey,
May one give us peace in all our states,
And the other a piece for all our plates.
Larry Bird

************
A fact you won't soon forget...,
Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently,  and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows,  and,  to everyone's relief,  confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts. However,  during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.

By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks,  while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.The M.T.A. then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills. He very quickly concluded the cause.  When crows eat road kill,  they always have a look-out crow, in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger. They discovered that while all the look-out crows could, shout  "Cah.! ",  not a single one could shout  "Truck.! "

        Thanksgiving Quotes
David Letterman
Top Ten Signs You Had A Bad Thanksgiving
10."You ran out of booze by 11 a.m."
9."Most frequently used word at dinner: Heimlich"
8."Meal was leftovers from last Thanksgiving"
7."Thanks to new electric knife, kids fought over wishbone and your severed thumb"
6."The 'turkey' was wearing a dog collar"
5."Spent day in Times Square waiting for the giant turkey to drop"
4."Woke up from tryptophan-induced sleep to find yourself naked in the driveway"
3."When dinner came out, so did your son"
2."Laura Bush and the twins lock you out"
1."Your turkey dinner was the only breast you've touched all year"

Jay Leno: "You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out."

Dave Barry: "Proper turkey preparation is critical. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more Americans die every year from eating improperly cooked turkey than were killed in the entire Peloponnesian War. This is because turkey can contain salmonella, which are tiny bacteria that, if they get in your bloodstream, develop into full-grown salmon, which could come leaping out of your mouth during an important business presentation."

Larry Omaha: "My mother won't celebrate Thanksgiving. She says it represents the white man stealing our land. But she's not angry, she figures, 'What the hell, we're taking it back one casino at a time.'"

Roseanne Barr: "Here I am 5 o'clock in the morning stuffing bread crumbs up a dead bird's butt..."

George Carlin: "We're having something a little different this year for Thanksgiving. Instead of a turkey, we're having a swan. You get more stuffing."

Andre Kelley: "This was a really, really big year for me. I got to go home for Thanksgiving and sit at the adults' table. That's 'cause, you know, somebody had to die for me to move up a plate."

Kevin James: "Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants."

Jon Stewart: "I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land."

Jim Gaffigan: "Thanksgiving. It's like we didn't even try to come up with a tradition. The tradition is, we overeat. 'Hey, how about at Thanksgiving we just eat a lot?' 'But we do that every day!' 'Oh. What if we eat a lot with people that annoy the hell out of us?'"

Johnny Carson: "Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often."
