Thankfulness from the Mouth of Bad Little Kids

By now the gorging of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie should be hours behind us.  Me?  I just got done taking a shot of Pepto Bismol to quell the pains of pairing a slice of rum cake with a sliver of sweet potato pie as a late night snack.  Yeah, it was good going in. 

While some may be just waking up from a tryptophan induced coma, others are staggering bleary-eyed from store front to store front, fighting to complete gift lists via Black Friday deals.  As expected, we already have a shopping meltdown where a woman pepper sprayed her fellow shoppers to keep them from the goods she wanted to buy.  For the love of humanity, people.

Yesterday, we reflected on the simplicity of gratitude.  Today, I am thankful for the gift of twisted humor.  Humor will get us all through the stress and general madness that sometimes befalls the holiday season.  Were you trapped at a table for Thanksgiving dinner with relatives you can’t stand?  There is a cure for that.  Are you icing any combat bruises from a day of shopping?  There is a cure for that.  Are you side-eying the holiday decorations you need to both dig out of the basement and put up?  Yep, there is a cure for that.

I bring you a clip from the naughty, but honest, kids of South Park that makes me giggle each time I watch it.  For them, being thankful sometimes boils down to the luck of not being stuck with what someone else has.  Enjoy!

    I love South Park!! And am super happy to be sitting at home today, watching football, and eating leftovers!! NOT out shopping!

    • Ah yes, the trail of holiday time football games. I like watching them as well when I have some vaca time and don’t feel guilty or rushed to multitask while watching. Thanks for popping by, Jillian!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving Barbara and I hope the Pepto heals all! Loved the clip…thanks for the fab laugh. Here’s to a great weekend…enjoy!

  3. Is there anything South Park can’t make funny? Thanks for the holiday chuckle Barb. Listening to all of you south of the border talking about turkey makes me crave my favourite leftover – cold turkey sandwiches with cranberry and stuffing piled on. Christmas can’t come too soon!

  4. Oh, I hide on days like this. Crowds give me hives. I managed to work off last night’s meal, then dug into the leftovers…tomorrow is another day! Thanks for the bit of humor, Barbara!

  5. Nancy J Nicholson says:

    Okay, I had never seen Southpark and frankly I don’t think I’m missing much. But it was hilarious, thanks for sharing for those of us with no Cable television or TVs for that matter

    • You are welcome, Nancy! South Park is a twisted treat that has some wickedly clever moments. You can catch up on episode via Comedy Central’s website or catch some clips on YouTube. Not that I’m trying to convert you or anything… 🙂

  6. Southpark always makes me laugh. That crude humor is priceless, ha, ha.
    As for Black Friday — I never even try. Cyber Monday wins my vote every year 🙂

    • I’m with you on Cyber Monday and other online holiday deals, Angela. The craziness of Black Friday turns me off from playing in it.
      Glad I’m not the only fan of crude humor. Heh, heh. 😉

  7. Laura Best says:

    I’m kind of partial to twisted humour myself. Thanks for sharing this. 🙂

  8. Lesann says:

    I like me some twisted humor too. Southpark sometimes makes me cringe but often makes me snort laughs out my nose in a very unbecoming manner. Poor Kenny. I’m not a Jay Leno fan so this one had special appeal. lol

    • Ditto, Lesann! I loved how they went all in on Leno with their cruel jokes. Cartman makes me cringe and fall out laughing as well. He’s a kid I would not be friends with, but who I’d undestand because he stays true to who he is and you can know what is coming.

  9. The funny thing is that real kids would probably react just this way. Well, with less cursing and being mean-spirited, but kids can be so honest sometimes! I’m sure Jay Leno has had some well-meaning kids comment on his chin in his lifetime.

    • That is why I love South Park. While foul, they are dead-on with the humor and being up-to-the-moment on a lot of current events. A few episodes ago this season, they were tossing in great digs about the Penn State scandal and the failure of many adults involved. Brutally honest. Thanks for commenting, Annalise!

  10. How could one NOT appreciate twisted humor given the craziness of the holidays? You should’ve seen me T-day morning when I couldn’t find my tablecloth. (It was still at the cleaner’s.) I know no one cared that the cloth I used was a bit short, but little details like that drive me nuts. And yes, I obsess over things no one else would even notice.

    I ate three Thanksgiving dinners this year, two too many and my treadmill is currently my best friend. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    • Thanks for rolling by, Jennifer! I’m still giggling at the feeling three Thanksgiving dinners must produce. I think I’d still be nodding off in a corner. And I get the crazy stress of the details on holidays. That is why I try to avoid it. I’m a great holiday guest or assistant. 🙂
