Thanksgiving Wishes (and two reminders)

This is my last post before Thanksgiving, so I thought I'd share some jokes and cartoons. Depending on a few traveling issues, I may not post on Friday. The top list on my sidebar is dedicated to holiday-related links, including a poem by Lucy Maud Montgomery, beloved children's author of Anne of Green Gables.

First, a couple of reminders:

1) This is your last week to enter the YA Novel Discovery Contest.

2) Shelli over at Market My Words is having an agent contest on Monday, November 29th, with Josh Adams. Check throughout the day to see when she posts it--it could be an evening thing. Not all of the contests have required a completed manuscript. **UPDATE as of 7 PM EST on the 29th- Sorry to anyone who's checked the website for this contest--it's still listed on her blog as the 29th, so I'm not sure...maybe she's delayed it.

A Bigger Turkey

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, 'Do these turkeys get any bigger?'

The stock boy answered, 'No ma'am, they're dead.'

The Secret of Stuffing a Turkey

How many cooks does it take to stuff a turkey? Only one, but you REALLY have to squeeze to get him

And finally, may the joys and blessings of Thanksgiving bring even the most bitter rivals together:


  1. Always in the mood for thanksgiving jokes! Thanks.

  2. Too funny! Thanks for a laugh ~ Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! :)

  3. These are great! I love this time of year when rivals can come together. (Usually that means family. lol) And we can express our gratitude.

    Have a lovely holiday!

  4. I'll check out those links. And thanks for the Thanksgiving humor!

  5. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  6. Those turkey jokes were so funny! Especially the one about them getting any bigger.
