- Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants. Kevin James
- You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out. John Leno
- Thanksgiving is a magical time of year when families across the country join together to raise America’s obesity statistics. Personally, I love Thanksgiving traditions: watching football, making pumpkin pie, and saying the magic phrase that sends your aunt storming out of the dining room to sit in her car. Stephen Colbert
