It’s Thanksgiving here in the States; so I plan on taking the day off from blogging that I might partake of the American custom of stuffing myself to the point of unconsciousness while hanging out with my family.

Best. Video. Ever.
I haven’t seen this video before – thanks for sharing it Orac, and happy thanksgiving to all you Americans.

My 35 year old son showed me this on Thanksgiving Day. He was so happy to have something new from the Muppets! Funny how such a small, random event can bring such joy into a life.
Did you know that Jason Segel is doing a bunch of Muppet stuff? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0781981/ I wonder if he was in on this. 🙂 I wouldn’t doubt it.
Younger daughter made us watch this video ad nauseum while the turky was roasting. Hysterical.
