If I’d had more time this week I would have photoshopped an ant head on a turkey for this post. Or something equally tacky. I always thought a dung beetle with a pilgrim hat might bring the right balance of buggy, festive, and silly.

As it is, I’m spending the day in a small gathering in town here with family, friends, and pets. I’ll instead wish my American readers a happy day of gluttony, football, and good company. And to my non-American friends, you really should try out one of these overeating-related holidays.
