Give Thanks, Not Shanks

It's Thanksgiving Day again here in the states. For those of our non-U.S. readers, it's one of this country's oldest national holidays. If memory serves me right, it was founded by the Native Americans, who were thankful to the pasty Europeans for not only discovering America, but for bringing along all sorts of cool Euro souvenirs. Like the Puritans...and Smallpox.

So, in keeping with the traditional observation of any national holiday, I'll be doing as little work as possible today.

















Even though he does wear yoga pants, and he bears an uncanny likeness to Dr. Bungobungo, this week I'm thankful to have a kick-ass blog partner. And we're both thankful to have such excellent readers and blog friends. You guys and gals are the best. Here's to hoping that you all have a good Thanksgiving (if you celebrate), or that you at least find another acceptable reason to gorge yourself with turkey, mashed potatoes, and a little boxed wine (the classiest of Thanksgiving-related drinks).

Cheers!

  1. yoga pants are most awesome, although I am a girl, so I cannot vouch for their ball supportive-ness.

    Happy Thanksgiving! And I am starting the morning off with a beer.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving...even to Dr. Bungobungo ("I question his credentials" that was great). I didn't know they made yoga pants for dudes. They're made by Under Armour aren't they? If they supported the fellas, I'd wear them.

  7. I'm a big fan of Virtual Thanksgiving... for I'm a veggie. I know: CLICK!

  8. Happy Thanksgiving and cheers to you both! I thought I was the only dude to wear yoga pants! Now I don't feel so alone!

    I hope you don't mind what I did in reference to you guys on my "big post"!

  12. Hmmm men can wear yoga pants? And they are supportive of your junk? I guess I need to start my holiday shopping for Boyfriend...

    Happy Thanksgiving, guys!

  14. I'm thankful that the monster in my closet only wears scuba gear and a gas mask. Your Dr. Bungobungo is much worse. Now it's time for me to listen to my mother-in-law tell me what a shitty job I've done raising my kids and ignore her by getting drunk with my father-in-law. No wine for us though, it's a beer holiday. We're very classy that way. Happy Thanksgiving

  21. I always regret letting Dr. BungoBungo give me a liver transplant... my urine has been bright red ever since.

  22. Bungobungo reminded me of Berlusconi and his Bunga Bunga parties. I wonder if there is a relation there...

    And Happy Thanksgiving to both of you :)

  23. Brandon has a mouth! :) Cute. He never has a mouth...it bugs me.

    I just put up my obligatory "What I'm Thankful For" post, but I guess I should suppliment it with, "I, too, am thankful for yoga pants, and for being yoga fit." Ha! I love vanity. I guess I'm thankful for my overwhelming dose of vanity I have, too. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving, guys :)

    :)

  25. Yoga pants? For real? Wouldn't those be a real ball crusher?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy turkey day from Turkey. I am thankful for the 70 degree weather that blesses us here and international mail for bringing me the little things that make life tolerable this far from friends and family.

    You have no idea how much a pack of Starburst chews can be worth!

  27. Happy Thanksgiving to you, B&B. Have a good one and don't stuff yourself too full of all that goodness. Actually... I take that back, gorge away!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha! Love it. And I do love that at least one of you is attempting, or um thinking about yoga! :D

    I am also thankful for yoga pants. We are not having our official Thanksgiving until Saturday due to my sister's new uber-successful job, but I do believe my yoga pants will also come in handy when I decide I am just too full for jeans

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Thanksgiving guys!

    I'm going to go shopping now. Maybe I can find some yoga pants on special, because that's all I'm going to be able to wear for the next few days. Cheers!

  30. As a kiwi I just don't get thanksgiving, But I guess for us Xmas is about looking back on the year past, being surrounded by friends and family and eating lots of stuff that we really don't need to. so the 2 holidays in one, Multitasking at its best, or worst, depending on how you look at it.

    Happy Thanksgiving, I Hope it all goes well, and you don't explode from food :) Mind you, that would make a nice comic... The AFTERMATH... Dun dun dun!!!

  31. Full disclosure: I maaaaybe a liiiittle drunk. But! Oddly enough shanking was a topic at my dinner table tonight as well as giving oneself oral sex and the derivation of the word 'fapping.' I am currently extremely thankful for the British invaders of India for creating the fabulous cocktail: Gin and tonic. Guess who's not getting malaria anytime soooooon? Bahahaha

  37. fuck year yoda...yoga pants. You should try the beer name Crazy Canuck. it is full of flavor, and usually one of those pints already gives ya a buzz.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've always been sceptical of yoga. But hey, if Bryan is a believer then maybe I should purchase that crate of yoga videotapes that have been gathering dust and old people smell in my local charity shop.

    I didn't celebrate thanksgiving, but it didn't stop me devouring PILLOWY MOUNDS OF MASHED POTATOES (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALpdZHkOtHE).

  39. Not nearly as messy as yogurt pants.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'd like to think he was joking about wearing the yoga pants... HUT I am very thankful for those things. Also, we are ALL thankful for your blog. You guys continue to brighten peoples days and inspire young bloggers like myself to stick it out! May God bless ya always and forever.

  44. I'm late to the party but happy Thanksgiving.

    I'm thankful that there aren't any spandex gorillas prowling the streets around here :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Late but I showed up. I love yogo pants. Not sure I want to be in a room full of men in them. No, not sure about that mental image at all....

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm gonna need to see how well those yoga pants work in the "sitting bull" position before I have an opinion....

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  47. I rocked the box wine on Thanksgiving! (I usually don't do that)

    ReplyDelete
  48. They are having a Victoria's secret yoga pants sale and all yoga pants are $25. They are my favorite, though I'm not aware of how supportive they are on balls.

    Also, I'm Italian so we had a Thanksgiving Lasagna. That's where the box wine comes in handy.

  51. Too funny!!! Glad I found this blog! Ha! nHope you had a great Thanksgivng :o)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Happy Thanksgiving, guys! Along with wine, my turkey this year was supported by bacon. That's right, we baconated our turkey. OMG. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think all that Dr Bungobungo wants is to be with people during Thanksgiving. He only hides in your closet out of lonliness. And to catch you in yoga pants.

    Hope you had a good one, lads.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Happy Thanksgiving. Yea for yoga pants. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Happy belated thanksgiving guys. The blogger version of me is thankful for blogs like yours.... that are as freekin twisted as they are hilarious. So cheers to you guys...... and I guess ball support as well?!...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aww, you made Bryan cry on Thanksgiving? Bad Brandon!

    I didn't have a Thanksgiving Day, I had a Pajama Day. Stayed in bed all day, napping and watching DVDs... :)

    Hope you guys had a fun day and are out of your food coma by now!

    ReplyDelete
  57. We don't really celebrate Thankgiving in India, but I do hope you both had a fabulous day :)

    And keep writing all the great funny stuff that you have been doing with such brilliance!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Isn't it better to have yoga pants which are highly supportive of your gonads and silky on your hips rather than running shorts which have the propensity for ball malfunction – Can you imagine the embarrassment for being arrested for flashing an octogenarian yoga teacher from the front and exposing your builders bottom to that gorgeous young hottie who made the mistake of setting up behind you....

    ReplyDelete
  59. happy belated thanksgiving, I was out uhm celebrating thanksgiving...yes yes, we do that here in ireland with wine waves and stuff :)

    Also I got a weird image in my head thanks to the yoga pants comment.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm one glass of wine deep and shitfaced. This new workout/diet regimen makes me an infant on wine...does that even make sense?

    Anyway...heart you guys!!! p.s. men in yoga pants = yum.

    ReplyDelete
