Thanksgiving Puns

Our Thanksgiving puns make light of what many consider to be the most American of all holidays.

We get together with friends and family, we eat, watch some football, eat some more, and maybe, just maybe, get in a little post-meal exercise.

Oh, and one more thing – the most important – we express our gratitude and give thanks for all of our blessings in life. One of those blessings is the ability to laugh at ourselves.
