Should We Change The Image Of Thanksgiving From A Turkey To A Sweet Potato?

Not going to sit here and act like I don’t scarf down 3-4 pounds of turkey each Thanksgiving. But tomorrow when you’re eating, I need you to really think, and tell me if that turkey lives up to the hype.

Not if Thanksgiving lives up to the hype (because it clearly does), but if that turkey does the job. Obvious answer’s that no, it doesn’t. No matter who’s cooking it, turkey’s maybe 5th on my list of Thanksgiving foods. Yet number 1? That’s our new Thanksgiving logo: sweet potatoes.

Don’t know how someone doesn’t like sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes literally translates to candy vegetables. Doesn’t get much better than that. Especially if you pour a little gravy on them, toss a little butter in, get the sweet and sour thing going. I could eat an olympic pool full of sweet potatoes in probably 44 minutes.

I get the potato’s not the most aesthetically pleasing logo, and the turkey’s somewhat adorable (but not really at all) (I need an explanation on that weird neck thing). It’s just that the time’s up for the turkey, and we all need to move past it as our logo. My vote’s in for the sweet potato, fight me on it.
