Our special "Happy Thanksgiving" mailing!
 


JOCKO AND SMIRKOV GIVE THANKS



 
Jocko: To quote H.L. Mencken, "In this world of sin and sorrow, there
is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am
not a Republican."Smirkov: Well, I rejoice that I am not a
Democrat (or at least won't be after I change my registration back to
Republican, now that I'm mostly over that little snit-fit I had during
the 2004 presidential election).Jocko: Well, I'm glad you had
at least a few months of sanity.Smirkov: And I'm glad you're
too muddle-headed to realize the overall absurdity of your logic.
Jocko: Um, yeah. Anyway, on a lighter note, I'm glad for home
garden mulchers.<!--Note: For

Here -->Smirkov: And professional tree chippers, so I don't have to
swing the axe myself and get blisters on my delicate but muscular
hands. Jocko: How can hands be delicate and muscular at the
same time?Smirkov: Why do you care?Jocko: I'm glad I
don't care.Smikov: And I'm glad that you're glad you don't
care.Jocko: And I'm glad that talking to you always leaves me
feeling intellectually superior again, after months of playing Mr. Mom
and feeling like I was slowly losing my sanity.Smirkov: And I'm
glad we're changing the topic, if only as to not confuse
you.Jocko: Okay, fine. I'm glad for 30-pound turkeys deep-fried
in peanut oil.Smirkov: And for mankind's obsession with all
things pyrotechnic that drove the creation of such
technology.Jocko: What do explosions have to do with cooking
turkeys?Smirkov: Obviously you've never spent time with people
who like to deep-fry their frozen turkeys without allowing them to thaw
first.Jocko: I'm glad I don't have to undergo burn treatment,
after spending time with such nuts. But I'm also glad for low-fat ranch
dressing in an upside-down bottle.Smirkov: And for fast-food
chicken nuggets that don't go bad even after you've lost them behind
the books on your shelf for a year.Jocko: And for regression
therapy...Smirkov: ... and for all the humorous anecdotes it
spawns.Jocko: And for used bookstores.Smikov: And
Buy-It-Now online auctions.Jocko: And no-calorie, no-taste,
no-point beer.Smirkov: And I'm glad that Clay got fired on the
Apprentice last week.Jacko: I'm glad I don't even know who Clay
is.Smirkov: I wish I didn't.Jocko: I'm glad Jerry
Falwell gets only a little press after all these years, and not as much
as he used to.Smirkov: And I'm glad Britney Spears had a baby,
if only to keep her off the streets.Jocko: Um, I'm glad Hitler
didn't win World War II.Smirkov: And I'm glad Mom always liked
me better.Jocko: Why, you little --!Smirkov: Ack! Grlbb
... help!
