Thanksgiving at home

Now that we've all finished our travel, we get to celebrate Thankgsiving, that holiday when we sit down for dinner and celebrate just how dysfunctional our families are. I'm not certain what Hollywood's most dysfunctional screen family is. TCM is showing You Can't Take It With You at 11:30 AM this morning, but in that movie, the Vanderhofs really aren't dysfunctional. They just look it to everybody on the outside; in fact they're the only normal people around. A better example of a dysfunctional family, and one that's getting together for the holidays, might be the Plantagenets in The Lion In Winter.

And what's on the table? Why, The Chicken of Tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody.
