Save the Turkeys!

Turkey goes great with bacon and avocados on sourdough, but as attractive as turkeys are, the meat that hangs from their bones just isn't my favorite. So this year we've decided to do the humane thing and not eat the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. On a less humane note, this Thursday's dinner will feature my very first Thanksgiving Ham. Sorry, pigs... there's simply no getting around the fact that you're delicious. Don't get too comfortable, though, turkeys... as long as there's bacon, avocados, and sourdough bread to be enjoyed, every day you're on deck as a possible sandwich.

And then there is always Christmas just around the corner.
Great expression on that turkey.

I agree! The triptophan (sp?) just makes me grumpy and knocks me out - so this year we will have a Thanksgiving chicken!

Moons over my hammy vs the turkey dong ( I forgot the real name) - the turkey dong wins 9 of 10 for me. But the ham is a great choice for thanksgiving. Although the pilgrims are probably rolling over in their graves right now.

The Deli-Dinger, Josh... I believe that's what you're talking about. But Denny's discontinued the Deli-Dinger... while Moons Over My Hammy remains available.

Check your pig for tire marks before cooking.
Great picture! Funny characters.

I love these designs. I especially love the way his nose pokes out from those big fat ears. Fresh.

Funny stuff, Shane! The pig 5 o'clock shadow is awesome.

Wonderful character designs as usual, sir. Every time you draw a pig you raise the bar a little higher.

Great characters! Wow, I'm just impressed. You're a jerk.

That turkey is such a smarmy bastard!

Hey S.T.

Thanks for the kind comments as always. Your image of the pig and Turkey are very humorous. The ear flaps covering the pig's eyes are a nice touch to this plump fellow! I also like how the Turkey is presenting the pig - as if he's saying "Here he is, come and eat him!"

The pig does look way yummier! We are eating both ham and turkey this year... no one escapes. Ha ha.

Lovely drawing too!

KEVSU said...

What I want to know is - what part of the chicken does the McNugget come from?

What an imagination. Very nice.

Robin Hall said...

Haha, I don't know how anyone wouldn't want to eat that pig!

I love his design especially, nice turkey, but the pig really rocks!
