It’s a common misconception that the tryptophan in turkey causes drowsiness. It’s actually a combination of that plus the sheer amount of carbohydrates and simple overindulgence. Also, Thanksgiving Day television specials seem to help with this too.
That whole Lady Gaga television special thing mentioned in the comic? We’re not making that up.
This is a real thing.
I wouldn’t think about it too much.
I don’t follow popular culture (it’s known to cause brain damage), but every so often a nugget of pop-culture detritus floats to the shores of my consciousness and materializes into some thought or idea that through some arcane ritual becomes a comic. I guess ideas have to come from somewhere.
As usual, I’ll be with my friends and family this holiday, eating jerk chicken and getting a little buzzed off Concord Grape Manischewitz wine. Fun times.
To all the readers out there, please have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. We’ll see you all next week!
