    Happy Turkey Day! If you're here, I assume you're taking a break from food, football, family, or whatever. Let me steer you to a little gem of an illustrated Thanksgiving fable about life in a future where things are getting warmer, but holiday traditions are still being observed - but in a new way thanks to genetic engineering and Chevronsanto. It's the tale of How Nature's Turkey® came to inhabit the Abandoned Business Park.

  It's a creation by Patrick Sean Farley at his Electric Sheep Comix website. He has some pretty intense adult graphic novels at the site that can be a bit NSFW, but Nature's Turkey is relatively family friendly.

Enjoy - and if you like what you see, Farley has a Paypal link at the site.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

    We decided not to cook anything we'd done before, and ended up looking through issues of La Cucina Italiana - the Italian version - and found some good sounding stuff. Not too difficult, as we all have a lot to do, and dinner can't take all day this year.

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.

    really .. it's too close to the truth ..

    I remember when I was younger, there was a big scare about how Butterball turkeys were injected with some kind of coconut or palm oil that was bad for us ...so everyone switched to Honeysuckle ... but now I learn that Butterball is union produced .. next year I am having scrambled eggs

    if I can find free range!

    Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
