    This is why I gave up Thanksgiving with my family. Screw that shit. We just stay home, order Chinese, and then go to a movie.

    Telling someone to "contribute at the adult level" is so damn patronizing.

    And just what is wrong with store-brand ice cream? Publix and Kroger sell pretty good private-label ice cream, fuck you very much Marney! And for you West Coasters on here, I KNOW you know about Thrifty Drug Store Ice Cream...

    Someone decided to make a short video webisode based on this letter from 0:38-4:50:

    Marney? If I had a dog's name I would torture my family too.

    To be fair, the names were changed in the email. However, I did have a class in college with a guy named Marney...he was a pompous, racist (not trying to go there, but he thought telling me watermelon and fried chicken jokes were funny) douchebag fratboy to the nth degree, so I'm not too fond of the name given these examples.

    I like your style. That's what Mr Pip and I do, though last October we ordered two fer one pizza, chicken wings and a large poutine for me (the pig) and watched movies here at home.

    We do it during the Christmas holidays, too, we aren't bothered with Christmas at all. We don't have kids, grandkidlets, etc. so why bother with all the tedium?

    We don't even celebrate our birthdays anymore. That, too, has become very boring. How many times can we turn 39?

    The only holiday or special day that I celebrate is New Year's Eve. I drink beer (big whoop! I drink beer every weekend) but I'm always glad to send the old year off on its dark miserable travel into space and begin the new year with a clean white slate. There's that hope that dangles as the year changes, sort of like a chunk of rotten potato dangling under a pig's snout. Gives me renewed energy!

    For me, it 's not Thanksgiving without the Peanuts special and this letter. It cracks me up more every time I read it. 15 lbs of mashed potatoes.

    While my family usually does a bit of potluck with the traditional meal, I'm too much of a micromanager to allow people to bring 15 lbs of mashed potatoes. I have no problem if people bring whatever they want, but unless I know that person and how (well) they cook, I'm not leaving something as important as the mashed potatoes or asparagus or pie (some people can't make pie to save their life!) up to someone who has to prepare it as though they work in a school cafeteria.

    And why the hell are you telling people to bring turnips to Thanksgiving, especially when most of the family hates them? I just have so many questions. I wish someone would make a Hallmark movie out of this letter.

    This is EXACTLY how I am when it comes to Christmas dinner. My MIL has taken to doing Thanksgiving. She never asks, but I usually bring some sort of dessert to add to the pile, and since she feels bad if she doesn't contribute in some way for Christmas when we have the usual event at our place, she does one of these two or both: 1. Brings some pies (always store bought, but good quality ones, not that I'd give a shit, since I'm not Marney-the-cunt) or offers to buy and bring the ham (No way in hell am I gonna turn that down, those things ain't cheap!). And everybody has a good time.

    Haters, you should be thanking Marney for making Thanksgiving so perfect for everyone.

    Surprise, she has "I am going to stab you" eyes. Obviously ZERO sense of humour and takes passive aggression to the next level. Women like this deserve their own special circle of hell.
