‘I Wish Turkey Only Cost a Nickel’ [VIDEO]

This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for my family, friends, girlfriend, health and job.  I’m also very thankful for our soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors — my brothers and sisters in arms — and the sacrifices they make for us.  But there’s one more person I’m thankful for, I am thankful for Adam Sandler.

Come on, let’s be serious it doesn’t get much better than 20 years of Adam Sandler. Who is not thankful for Adam Sandler?  I sure am.  Sandler brought some of the greatest SNL characters to life like Cajun and Opera Man.  He’s the man that gave us amazingly, ridiculous movies like “Waterboy” and “Billy Madison” of which the latter , Siskel and Ebert gave the film a very bad review, and said of Sandler:

“Not an attractive screen presence, he might have a career as a villain or a fall guy or the butt of a joke, but as the protagonist his problem is he creates the fingernails on the blackboard” with Siskel adding “…you don’t have a good motivation for the character’s behavior”

Ha! Those grumpy old farts missed missed that review, Ha! Of course he’s gone on to shine in dramatic roles like “Reign Over Me” and “Funny People” as well.  The thing that’s so great about Sandler is his uncanny ability to connect with his audience — Whether he’s Theo’s friend on “The Cosby Show” or giggling his way, like a pre-teen girl through a song like “Ode To My Car” or he’s a 20 year old man with the maturity level of a 10 year old boy (like in an overwhelming majority of his movies) or he’s a loving father who lost his wife and kids in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.  We’ll just always pull for this guy, we always want Sandler to win.

So this Thanksgiving Im thankful for him and his career.  But regardless of how great I think he is or how much you think he’s not (and you know you know you think he’s great) this post is all just an elaborate excuse to post the best Thanksgiving song ever — “The Thanksgiving Song.”  And you can bet come Christmas yall be watching “The Hannuka Song.”  Enjoy and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
