A YouTube Thanksgiving Special

It’s only 4 days away, so to prepare:

We start off with An Addam’s Family Thanksgiving

We proceed to the classic WKRP segment no Thanksgiving tribute would be complete without:

The Drop:

The Resolution:

Since William S Burroughs is a famous local-boy with his own star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame, here’s a video of WSB himself reading his poem; “Thanksgiving Day, Nov 28, 1986” (Contains some language some might find obscene)

For something a little offbeat, and a little more family friendly:

“Aren’t You Glad You’re Not a Turkey?” (a performance by a music director of some synagogue somewhere. Wish it were my own. Or I’m glad it’s not my own. Haven’t decided yet.)

And for those who like instructional how-tos:

How to Butter Bake your Turkey (tv commercial circa 1959)

    What a pleasant surprise, the Addam’s Familt thanksgiving special…

    Here I was, just singing “Happy, Happy Turkey Day…” sotto voce all day, for some inexplicable reason, stuck on the brown syrupy goo of a yam like a raisonne in the sun.

    It doesn’t seem possible for WKRP to be nearly 30 years old.

    I saw the episode from which the two segments were extracted, on the air.

    That marks my status in age and media consumption.

    As for the other vids, thanks:
    “Butter dead than read” Burroughs said, a seder Budweiser man who never was a turNkey.
