Happy Thanksgiving (in Canada, at least)!!

Mrs. That Dan Guy and I will be feasting in royal style this year, thanks to an ingenious plan I concocted long before this weekend arrived.

About a month ago, I set up a birdfeeder in our backyard. I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but here we get LOADS of nuisance birds in our yards – most especially magpies. These neighbourhood vultures can’t be bothered to hunt like robins or falcons – they just rip apart garbage bags while they sit on the curb waiting to be picked up each week. I had become a tad fatigued with picking up garbage from my front lawn, after these pests had feasted on old coffee grounds.

So, I set up a birdfeeder, with little bags of garbage hanging from the sides, to especially encourage the participation of neighbourhood magpies. However, I laced the birdseed and garbage with Jack Daniels – and before too long, my backyard was literally strewn with an abundance of passed-out magpies.

One of the fatter ones is going to be the guest of honour at our Thanksgiving dinner tonight. His beak is now a bottle opener.

Mmmm Mmmm good….

Chow for now!!

That, Sir, is disgusting! Folks, really, we are having turkey, real turkey meat|! (Although, I guess, if you think about it, his "concocted fantasy" or the "real" way, either way, a bird I am just depressed......Unhappy Thanksgiving then!)

Hmmm....sounds like a chip off the old block, acorn don't fall far from the tree, "we're having road kill tonight" to me. You don't only look like Pa, now you're sounding like him!

Dear MTDG - what you don't know, won't hurt you. The bird died of natural causes, as did his head.

I wondered where that came from...
