Once upon a time, a Pilgrim and an Indian were discussing the upcoming Thanksgiving party. It was the first ever Thanksgiving celebration, and there were no traditions established yet.
“Hey, let’s discuss the upcoming Thanksgiving party,” the Indian said. “We should really discuss it since it is the first ever Thanksgiving celebrations and there are no traditions established yet.”
“Okay,” the Pilgrim agreed. “Just like Halloween is associated with candies, Valentine’s Day with chocolate candies, and Christmas with candy canes, we need to associate Thanksgiving with some kind of food.”
“Hm…” the Indian pondered. “As a stereotypical Indian, I must say we should listen to the nature to give us the answers.”
They walked by a coyote. The coyote yelped.
“That’s it!!!” the Indian exclaimed (three times). “We can decide by looking it up on Yelp.”
“Nah,” the Pilgrim shook his head. “That hasn’t been invented yet.”
“We can just outsource it to Indians,” the Indian said. “They can build it in no time!”
“You mean outsource to your people?” the Pilgrim asked.
“No,” the Indian said. “Don’t you get it? You are not actually in India!”
They kept walking and then they heard a turkey that went gobble gobble.
“Oh, I know! We shall gobble down some gobble gobble!”
And the rest is history.

There was once a turkey who was very nice. Every Thanksgiving, he would be at the mall. Kids will come, sit on his laps and tell him what they presents want for Thanksgiving.
“I want a robot!” said a kid.
“I want a Tickle-Me Elmo!” said another.
“42 inch LCD TV!”
“Good, good,” the turkey said with a smile (not sure how that worked). “You will all get your presents, because they are all at such insane discounted prices now.”
When Thanksgiving came, the turkey landed on a kid’s roof in a sleigh. He was carrying a bag of presents, but it was too much trouble to carry so he stuffed it in himself. And then he slid down the chimney.
The fireplace happened to be on and the rest is history.
