When Holidays Collide

"Okay, I know I'm a turkey and all, but I gotta tell you guys...
I'm pretty sure I belong on a
Christmas tree more than a menorah or a dreidel."

  1. Haha I think I'd let the turkey stay in there, there's something funny about it. You're right that it does belong out on the tree though, no idea where you found this Al but it must be somewhere crazy! Like Walmart or something haha.

      They even probably have real shit, too.

    1. The Christmas trees aren't circumcised and they feel real guilty about showing off.
      No, I don't really know what that means, either.

  10. A turkey really does belong on there more, at least it's the traditional dinner now. I wonder how the Jews would feel if people actually put dreidels and menorahs on their trees.

    1. What I didn't mention: The FIRST Mrs. Penwasser was Jewish (presumably still is). We had a Christmas tree. Which had dreidel and menorah ornaments.

  13. One stop holiday shopping at the Dollar Store. I wonder if kids today even know what these ornaments, and the holidays they represent, mean.

  14. Safest place for a turkey at Christmas. I'd like to see the one in the picture from the butt end. I can't help suspecting there a cavity for stuffing stuffing into. Or maybe just stuff into.

    1. And I even write using an accent.
      Of course, you don't hear that.
      For instance, I'm writing this with a French accent.
      (Yes, I know this doesn't make sense. Oui.)
