I take no responsibility for originating the following. I am merely passing it along…
“Top Ten Thanksgiving Hymns (you probably won’t sing)*”
“Granted, it was a few years ago, but The Mezzo Wore Mink still sets the standard for Thanksgiving pageants: The Singing Hors D’oeuvres, Miles Standish and Pocahontas, the choir dressed up as the four food groups…

Pass me Not the Jellied Salad**
