Only bring the main course to the table after it’s dead.
To all the US GoComics readers: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Tommy, get stuffed.
Happy Turkey Day!
I wonder if the word “screw” in today’s strip’s gonna cause complaint letters!
Who will kill Tommy Turkey?
I think Dimitri Deet feels the same way about his seven-or-so great-grandfather. The first Thanksgiving didn’t have turkey, but rather venison.
If a character like him said that in the 70’s, this comic would have been dropped from many newspapers!
As long as he’s not still angry after dinner…
Soon, he’ll bring the mood right back up—-during the main course!
Let’s have ham instead……….Hey pig! Would you come to the kitchen for a minute?
Question, all the other animals have names, why can’t it be Ricky Rat, Peter Pig, and Gary Goat? My favorite is Danny Donkey.
Since ham is a traditional meal for Easter I’m sure pig will be having a few problems of his own next spring.
Kudos to Pastis, he managed to draw a recognizable turkey. Must have been a great temptation to put a snout on it.
Tommy Turkey has a very, very bright future ahead of him
Support poultry pacifism: Eat Tofurky today!
Careful, Tommy, they might turn around, and serve you for Thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving, Pearls fans!
We must pause to extend sympathy to lawyers and politicians on this day because they cannot eat turkey. After all, cannibalism is illegal in every state in the U.S.A.
Give it up, turkey. You’re talking to a Pig who likes BLTs and you think you’ll get sympathy?
I was gonna say Happy Thanksgiving but Pearls has ruined this moment for me.
wonder if a certain dump in western Massachusetts is closed today…
“Hey…my head and body would like some togetherness.” Excellent!
This is the hardest I have ever laughed at a PBS strip! Well done, Stephan P.!
All of today’s characters, including Rat, have at one time or another been a much-appreciated food source for people. And although we are at the moment at the top of the food chain, it has not always been that way… :-)
With attitudes like that it’s no wonder they end up on the dinner table!
Drinkers: beer; tea; wine. A dirty bird!
What’s not to be thankful for?
Happy Thanksgiving! Eat Tommy Turkey. It’s allowed.
Turkeys are invited to Thanksgiving parties…..as dinner!
