I had an existential crisis last year when my then almost-7-year-old Mr. Monk started talking about a golden turkey. Complete with legs wrapped around in silver tinfoil and tied with red strings.
I honestly had no idea where he got the idea. I still don’t.
But an idea he did have. In fact, he was convinced that on Thanksgiving Day we were all going to sit around the table when, voila, out of the oven, a golden bird would be brought out on a silver platter and everybody would Oooo and Ahhh. And we would live happily ever after.
Ok, the last line was from my sarcastic self.
I hated breaking the news to him. Earth to Mr. Monk. Earth to Mr. Monk.
“Are you going to eat the turkey?”
“So you just want to look at the turkey?”
Norman. (Please imagine me saying it the way Jerry Seinfeld says “Newman!”)
“Norman Rockwell can take the turkey and stuff it!” I thought.
That being said, I do like all the parodies made of the now iconic Freedom From Want. The following is a repost of all the Freedom from Want parodies I could find with some exciting new additions.
