Remembering Redd Foxx On Thanksgiving

November 20, 2008 at 8:54 pm (Unzipped Thoughts)

My favorite Redd Foxx line:

“If the pilgrims had shot at bobcat, instead of turkey, we’d all be eating pussy on Thanksgiving.”

Bon appetite, everyone.

    From my email:
    “I prefer dark meat. I guess that mean i’d’ve preferred redd foxx to bobcat? it’s a toss-up!!!!!”

    Regarding the Pilgrims from the Mayflower and Plymouth Rock, it was the late great Malcolm X who once observed, regarding the continuing unacceptably sad state of race relations in this country,

    “We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock…. Plymouth Rock landed on us.”

    Happy Thanksgiving; let’s keep the faith.

    Keep the baby, Faith.
