This is going to show my age, but Thanksgiving always makes me remember the WKRP in Cincinnati "Turkey Drop" episode and at least one if not more of my family say this at somepoint during Thanksgiving day, so this year I decided to commemorate it:

WKRP Thanksgiving by auntiem, on Flickr

Long story short - the hapless owner comes up with a promotion involving turkeys, the traffic copter and a store parking lot - that, as you can imagine, didn't turn out well. This episode ended with the "no actual turkeys were harmed during the filming of this episode" rider in typical 70's fashion.

For those of you who weren't in existance when WKRP aired - I just checked and Hulu has full episodes including this one and the "phone cops" one, but I can't find the drunk test episode (my favorite) - if anyone finds it please let me know. 

decidedly average

I recognized it immediately - I freaking LOVED that episode! Brilliant!

(off topic - Hi everyone! I'm new here but I've been lurking for a long time now.  Grin Still learning my way around but I hope to be able to post my own craft pics and/or maybe join a swap someday! I love your work - all of you!)

This is my dad and my favorite quote! I so need to forward this to him. He mocks my love of crafting (in a good natured way) but I will show him once and for all that there are others out there that share our love of the good humor!

Though I'm sure a lot of the humor was over my head at the time, I LOVED that show. Excellent quote.

Thanks all! I'm currently working on a "Christmas is carnage" (from Babe) x-stitch for Christmas because my family says that all the time around x-mas.

I loved this more than you could know! Not only is it one of my all time favorite shows, I also lived in Cincinnati for a spell a few years ago.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
