[Little Suzie Newsykins]

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for so many things!

First, I'm thankful that I know how to draw a turkey using just my hand!  

Draw around your hand, then put a beak, feet and gobbly stuff on it-- there's your turkey!

Next, draw another hand, a head, add lotsa medals, then some peacock feathers . . .

. . . and you can be thankful for a great general who won two wars by, um, kinda' almost sorta ending them someday . . .

Thankfully, you can also draw around your hand, add the head, a mistress, a shirtless FBI agent and a little more hanky-panky, and . . .

Presto!  Problems in Libya and massacres in Syria disappear far into the background!

Next, draw around your left hand, then your right.  

Draw two heads, a dancing horse, and a billionaire obsessed with birth certificates--

and you can be thankful nobody even talked about global warming, um . . . until Manhattan flooded.

And I'm so thankful I can draw both hands a buncha' times, add lots and lotsa' heads, shopping bags, and money for Black Friday . . .

. . . and not even notice the fighting in Israel and Gaza!  (Let alone Congo and Sudan.)

That's what I'm most thankful for-- the news that keeps our minds off the news!

Happy Thanksgiving!  And keep those turkeys coming the end.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
