In a mad scramble to create the picture perfect meal, people can get a little sloppy and thus give the gift of foodborne illnesses to their guests. Nothing like a sprinkle of e.coli or salmonella to make the holiday meal extra special. No, I don’t suffer from hypochondria and quite frankly it never would have crossed my mind except I noticed the government is on a mission to make everyone aware of how unsafe their turkey dinner might be if they aren’t careful. Well, it makes sense really. Here in the U.S, fear is the new black. Anyway, it’s how I came up with this comic, so I guess I should, um, give thanks! 😛
Isn’t it funny how sometimes you have some odd random thing on your mind and the next thing you know someone mentions it? Such is the case tonight. I had been reading up on tainted food and statistics on food poisoning and related deaths. (I actually do a little research when I have a vague comic idea. Sometimes, I learn something that can impact the direction it goes in.) Anyway, just when I thought I’d had my fill of nauseating food thoughts, my friend Gabe sends me a link to his recent blog post. It’s about the entity he found in his refrigerator. It made me laugh – check it out.
Here’s last year’s Thanksgiving comic if you feel like visiting the past.
To those that are celebrating it, Happy Thanksgiving. To all my readers, thanks for reading, commenting, haiku-ing, stumbling, digging, linking, passing the url along, buying stuff, etc. Your support is appreciated. 🙂
