Happy Thanksgiving

November 27th, 2013 · 2 Comments

I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving.  Stuffing oneself on dead bird to gloat over the genocide of the Indians, while muttering to an Imaginary Gaseous Vertebrate, doesn’t appeal to me.  I don’t enjoy overeating, and dinners in my family were not happy gatherings: mostly my father would become drunk and belligerent, while I wanted to be elsewhere.  So here, to mark the occasion, is a superb depiction of a family dinner by Frank Tashlin, who, in addition to directing cartoons and movies, was an inspired cartoonist.  The drawing is taken from his 1951 book, The World That Isn’t.  Please click to enlarge.
