MOUTHPIECE - November 21, 2017
Well, Thanksgiving is only a few days away. Since that statement is actually accurate I thought it would be in my best interest to make this issue of Mouthpiece 'The 2017 Turkey Day Edition: Gravy Boats Ahoy!' issue.
I've packed this edition with great quotes, a turkey of a game, the Thanksgiving Dinner Game that's more fun than playing the real-life one, and a joke that will be great to tell during your turkey day dinner.
So have a Happy Thanksgiving and save me some stuffing.

Thanksgiving Dinner Game
Drag the family members to their seats. Try to arrange the seats so that the family members sit close to the things they like and far away from the things they don't like. It's much like the home version, but with less yelling and awkwardness.

*-- My Kingdom For A Turkey --*
It's the day before Thanksgiving, and the butcher is just locking up when a man begins pounding on the front door.
"Please let me in," says the man desperately. "I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife will kill me if I don't come home with one."
"Okay," says the butcher. "Let me see what I have left." He goes into the freezer and discovers that there's only one scrawny turkey left. He brings it out to show the man.
"That's one is too skinny. What else you got?" says the man.
The butcher takes the bird back into the freezer and waits a few minutes and brings the same turkey back out to the man.
"Oh, no," says the man, "That one doesn't look any better. You better give me both of them!"
