The Great Gobble Off 2012


I know all of my American readers are probably busy doing lunges and power squats getting ready for that much loved once yearly event, Black Friday.  But I’d like to take a moment out to discuss Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was several weeks ago in Canada.  It was pretty much the same as always.  Set the dining room table, invite over 20 or so family and friends, eat a bunch of food, slip on something suspicious on the kitchen floor, finish the evening off by praying.  Praying everyone will leave so you can finally toot.

We had a great time gorging ourselves, misfiring whipped cream and laughing at the misfortunes of ourselves and each other.

As always, the evening was topped off with The Great Gobble Off.  I thought today, being the day before American Thanksgiving, was the perfect time to share this year’s gobble off with you.

Behold … The Great Gobble Off 2012.


I encourage you to bring this holiday tradition into your warm embrace and share it with those you love this Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers.  Eat.  Drink.  Be Merry.  And think of me when the urge to toot overwhelms you.

    I read your blog almost daily, but I tend to slack towards the end of the semester. My husband *just* showed me this post. And I’m in tears.

    You see, the entire time we were watching your video, we heard cheesey-creepy music playing in the background and both thought it was something you had added for affect. Unbeknownst to us, the entire time we were watching it, the soundtrack to “Graveyard Golf” was playing in the background. I don’t know. It’s something my husband does when I don’t pay him any attention (because it’s the end of the semester). For what it’s worth, it makes your video even funnier.
