Basted in Blood

Oh, sure – you’d think the last two days of non-Site of the Month posts would be leading up to an actual Site of the Month. Silly silly people – you!

I do believe I mention this year after year, but I find T-giving to be a bland and boring meal. It’s just not for me. ….and let’s not even get into the family aspect of it.

I wanted to post a video of a song done on SNL way back, but true to form, much of NBC copywrited material is not out there. The song was done on Weekend Update and sung by Sarah McLachlan & Ana Gasteyer (who went under the guise of Wendy Calhoun). It was a hilarious send-up of a vegan T-giving protest song.

I do not have the video, but I do have the lyrics:

BASTED IN BLOOD

We gather together
For yams, beans, and cranberry sauce
But have you given much thought lately
To the turkey holocaust?
200 million noble birds
Slaughtered every fall
Ain’t no difference between Hitler, Stalin
And the folks at Butterball

So set your tables, America
From Birmingham to Branson
But when you carve that turkey
You’re a finger lickin’ Charlie Manson

Enjoy your pumpkin pie
Your buttery Idaho spuds
Grandma’s chestnut stuffing
And a turkey basted in blood

Basted in blood Basted in blood Basted in blood
Enjoy your turkey, enjoy…Basted in blood Basted in blood Basted in blood
Basted in blood Basted in blood Basted in blood

Song by: Sarah McLachlan & Wendy Calhoun
