Dear Ocean Spray Cranberry People:
I appreciate that it must be difficult to think up something to do with your canned and jellied sauce besides either (a) scooping it out of the can in messy spoonfuls or (b) tipping the whole thing out and letting your guests slice it or take messy spoonfuls.
However…If I tried to cut little turkey shapes out of what is really a very soft jelly, my friends would have to be told what I was trying to do.
And then they would probably laugh themselves sick. They would not, not, not say (and I quote) “What a clever idea!”
As a matter of fact, I would certainly feel like a turkey myself trying to micromanage your product. So could you please knock it off and stop offering your little Cranberry Cutters?
For that I will give thanks, as I take a nice freeform spoonful of…that stuff.
Sincerely yours, Lidian
And continuing the holiday theme, I have some friends to thank:
And thank you to Preston, who also has a wonderful blog, for the meme – which I promise to do quite soon. I would like to do it with a kitsch and retro twist, so I need to give it some thought. I’m looking forward to it!
I hope that you are all having an amazing Thanksgiving, if you are celebrating it today. We had ours back in October here in Canada, so it’s business as usual and leftover chili for dinner – sans cranberry-jelly turkeys, of course.
[PS: To my Humor-Blogs pals - Is anyone else having feed trouble? My feeds (FeedBurner and original) work fine everywhere else, but not at HB. Oh wait - it says I have 19 readers so unless more than 100 people gave up on me overnight, maybe there is something wrong. I am working on it, anyway, so please, please save any smileys you might have and I hope to be copacetic ASAP... ]
