[thanksgiving day] best wishes to the americans
Not a great time to be a turkey, I should have thought. It's Thanksgiving tomorrow in the U.S. and I'm getting in early to wish everyone the very best of days and don't die of consumption.
Things to be thankful for - you still have an unaltered constitution, there's still a great sense of nation below the elite level, you still kick butt in sport and you are still, for the moment, the possessor of a political system that has basically worked well.
You're also a friendly people. To you also, the world hegemony of the English language is largely due.
So, best of luck with your day tomorrow.
