    Well, the difference between political correctness and sympathy... we kinda screwed the heck out of the Native Americans at every turn. Then there's the lie that the Europeans carved out civilization out of raw wilderness. The Native Americans kinda did, and then European diseases killed many of them off. Things were practically waiting there for the Europeans to move in. And the treatment afterwards.... ouch. Thanksgiving and Columbus Day are kinda polarizing due to the unfortunate parts of our history. But that really has nothing to do with it.

    I'd like to blame this... the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. There's one turkey and a couple Pilgrims, but the whole thing is just a reminder that Christmas is coming. There's more Christmas than Thanksgiving in a Thanksgiving parade. Forgivable though, as it is a store that's throwing the parade. But the merger between that and Christmas started out of it.

    But at least let Halloween happen first. It's for kids, granted. Unless you're invited to a party or have a haunted house, it's for kids. And come on. Don't you just love when cute little kids are running around in costumes and remembering that you used to be like that?

    Yes while that is true, I doubt that's the reason for the merchandising change, heh.

    Well sadly in my area this year Halloween pretty much didn't happen. Parents were just too afraid to let their kids go out with all the downed wires. So we might be even more anxious to make something decent about Thanksgiving, heh.

    It's be funnier if they just focused on cartoony looking turkeys. Even without PC, Thanksgiving has lame decorations compared to other holidays. Of course, I prefer Halloween decorations to Christmas ones, and LOVE seeing Bunnies all over the place on Easter.

    I think Thanksgiving decorations are nice I just don't decorate for every season cause I don't live in a big enough of place to store it all.

    Anyone else bound to fits of laughter when looking at the infamous Polish "Muppety Jada do Hollywood" poster?

    I mean, they have me alone at the name Muppety Jada Do Hollywood.

    Which one of the Muppeties is Jada again, and why does he want to do Hollywood so badly again?

    Ohgod. That sounds like a bad Europorn film title. Ack!

    Am I the only one who thinks this little girl from Wreck it Ralph looks like the IT'S SO FLUFFY!!! girl from Despicable Me?

    I have no interest in seeing Wreck It Ralph.

    Am I the Only one who wakes up in the morning and runs straight to my computer to check my MC alerts?

    I gotta get around to posting more Polish movie posters. They're the weirdest from of abstract art there is. Made weird because they're supposed to represent things not open to interpretation. This is a weird one...


    Take a wild guess what movie that's supposed to be?


    And even when it's recognizable, it's too bizarre for words.


    Wow... they manage to make Shelly Duval look even more like an eel.

    That's pretty much me too. Once I take a shower and clean myself up, it's straight to my email and then MC. Some people drink coffee, I post on a message board.

    Yes, as long as I don't have to go somewhere, that is...then I usually just go straight to my waking up routine, but if I am free, then I go on MC first thing and stay there for hours...

    I run down to my computer like it's Christmas. That's how special you all are to me. :)

    If I had Interwebs at home I'd do that. :news:

    Hey DrTooth...before I scrolled down I checked IMDB for that first poster title...NOTHING. Wow.

    How am I a betrayer?! I still check in on here! Doesn't mean I think of you guys any less. :coy:

    Okay, I knew something weird was going on. First of all, you are NOT a betrayer. Second, I check on MC too, but that doesn't mean I am going to be a betrayer or whatever I really am. My "real life" can feel betrayed, but I NEVER ever hurt anyone... not even you Pinky. So, I say enough with the betrayal stuff.

    Well, am I only one who feels betrayed about real life? :sigh:
