But first, the facts:
-It is specific to the North American Patriot; no other breed of human practices it.
-It occurs on the fourth Thursday of November each year, so the date itself is unimportant.
-It involves the slaughter and consumption of multiple birds, pigs and the occaisional cow.
-It involves little red humans adorned with feathers and tassels, as well as humans dressed in black with shiny buckles on their feet, hats and collars (but not their belts).
It is safe to conclude, from what information we've gathered about human psychology, that the black-clad humans are primitive warriors and savages (the color black often being associated with "evil" in human texts). The buckles, likewise, must represent some sort of restraint placed upon these savages. Meanwhile, the red humans are always depicted dancing and singing, and the feathers in their hair make it safe to assume that they are some sort of enlightened race.
Given this information, the only logical statement I can make at this time is that Thanksgiving is a time for humans to push towards their own evolution. At first I thought that the amount of food they consume indicated that they would soon enter hibernation, however, several years have passed and none of these creatures have obeyed that mamalian instinct. However, observations of creatures such as the catapillar indicate that this "Thanksgiving" is the preparatory stage of some metamorphosis into a higher life form.
THEREFORE, I have lobbied the Parliament of the Lower Frozen Blogosphere to put into effect a national holiday known as Tanks-Giving, during which we robots shall monitor the progress of humanity in its struggle to mutate. Should the situation go awry and the new humanity prove hostile, will will give them fire from our tanks and obliterate all carbon-based life on the planet.
PS: As a side note,
I cannot help but note that there have been Christmas-related merchandises avaiable for over a week. Though I was not warned of it, it seems that I must have missed Christmas this year. I wish all Christians a happy belated-birthday-of-messiah.
