Horn of...well, not Plenty. Horn of Something.

All right, people. The Peach and I are off to Vancouver for the Thanksgiving long weekend. I don't want to leave you all with nothing to do, though, so here's a little cornucopia of odds and ends to entertain you while I'm away.

If you're an American and are confused about why Thanksgiving is a month and a bit earlier in Canada, or if you would like to know more about Canadian Thanksgiving in general, I would like to direct you to an old Electric Mayhem Non-School Research classic.

If you would like to see an amazing performance of Frank Zappa doing "I Am The Slime" on Saturday Night Live - one of my favourite fun Zappa songs - here is where you could go to do that. (Thanks to icculus on the CGS forums for the link.)

For those who like things a little more superhero-y, Kevin Church has done the nearly unthinkable: combined photos of the campy 60s Batman with dialogue and captions from Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. It made me cry a little. Go see.

And of course, there's always the Aquaman Song Contest, for 2 or 3 Geek Points. Go here and scroll to the bottom for a quick refresher on the rules.

So there you go, folks. Have a fun time, and keep the place clean. I want to come back here and find things exactly how I found them. Except for comments and song lyrics, you can leave plenty of those lying around.

Thanks for posting that link about combining 1966 TV Batman w/ TDK...too hilarious! My fav is the Batboat & Robin yells, "Peel!", classic!

If you're a real Batman Fan you should check out this blog.

You know, I think that starting next year, I'm going to start celebrating both Thanksgivings. It's my favorite holiday, so why not do it twice a year?

And maybe I'll switch out Christmas for yet another Thanksgiving...why go into debt in the name of Jesus when you could just have an orgy of gluttony?
