When Cleveland is frustrated by his son’s lack of enthusiasm for killing dinner, Junior expresses a sentiment that is close to home. The turkey in the store, wrapped in cellophane is ‘food’ while the living bird on the hoof – so to speak, is an animal.
It looks like the menu will include Soy-turkey this year at my house! We also learn a biographical ‘fact’ about Benjamin Franklin from Cleveland, who – while lacking facts, none the less turns the moment into a teaching opportunity about the vegetarian, atheist, pedophile father of our country! Have you noticed that when conservatives get on a roll, the subject of their ire becomes the very incarnation of Satan himself? I’m surprised that Cleveland didn’t demand to see a better copy of Ben’s birth certificate.
