Distended Thanks

Today marks the quintessentially Canadian holiday of Thanksgiving. This is the day that we all wallow in gratitude to the Distended State for the great gifts of jellied cranberry sauce, gun control, condoms, and welfare.

As we savour the apple chestnut stuffing and marvel over the spiced pumpkin preserves, the old honest auntie will remark how goodness but junior is getting quite fat and isn't it the strangest thing, come away from that television, but there's a whole childhood obesity epidemic on.

The invocation completed we shall all join the refrain:
"The Government should do something about that"

And we will feel our Great Canadianness down to our bones.
