Muppets or Pepper Spray Cop?

The temptation to post a meme of "Pepper Spray Cop" in Norman Rockwell's iconic "Freedom From Want" painting seems just too crass today; a day when gratitude for what we all have should be paramount.

So, I'll go with the traditional, lesser known Rockwellian Thanksgiving images on my other blog "Empty Nest Evolution", and present The Muppet recreation of Rockwell's most famous work (IMO).

Love it! I'm going to see the Muppet movie once the kids have gone back to school and I can enjoy it better. I love those guys. Happy Thanksgiving to you, dear friend!

The real history of Thanksgiving is actually complex and dark from the Native American's viewpoint. And our shadow self marches on and finds new victims. But pepper spray our children? Horrifying. Even as I feel gratitude for my life and graces. Happy Thanksgiving.

Well, I'm glad you included the link because it gave me a laugh/sigh/twinge of pissed-offedness. But I'm also glad you took the high road with the Muppets image. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!
