Pass the gravy

Doug:
Wow, Arturo, a five minute line for a hotdog? Business is booming!

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Ah, you know, it's Thanksgiving week. People use the holiday as an excuse to eat whatevah the frig they want and then go back for seconds.

 

Doug:
Doing anything special for Thanksgiving, Arturo?

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
The usual. You?

 

Doug:
I'm thinking about getting all authentic and what not.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
What are you gonna do? Pull a Sarah Palin and hunt your own wild turkey with a musket?

 

Doug:
Too contrived. I was thinking instead to get really old school.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Oh, yeah, how's that?

 

Doug:
Yeah, was thinking I'd go get syphillis from an indigen.

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
You really out to have your own show on the History Channel.

 

Doug:
Funny you should say that, Aruturo, as I was thinking the same thing last night after a few pulls on my peace pipe...

 

Doug:
I even came up with a working title: "Doug's European Canon — Size Mattahs."

 

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Yeah, and the print ad teasers could have the tag line, "Is that the Western Canon in your pocket or are you just glad to colonize me?"

 

Doug:
Beautful. And people think I come here just for the kraut.

What did the Buddhist say to the Hot Dog vendor?

Make me one with everything.

Excellent strip, H.B. When I was at John Two-Hawks' venison charqui cart the other day, he told me that his people had given the Pilgrims a gift in honor of all they'd done for his tribe. It was called a "sub-prime mortgage."

Arturo rulez.

@Lazlo Freem, I love that joke. Sounds like a groaner at first

.... but then again, so does Doug

I think Lord Jeffrey had the best approach. Smallpox infected blankets - the gift that keeps on giving.

It's not smallpox!


The cat went bald before dying. It's ricketsia pox!

Somebody sift some syph and shake a blanket this way. Don't get Thanksgiving here, but on the upside I don't gain 15lbs. before December either. It's a trade off I guess.

How did the Hot Dog Vendor reply to the Buddhist that was looking for change from his twenty?


Change comes from within.
