Thanksgiving Punch

Annie and Grace always spent Thanksgiving together, but the year that they were ten, Grace noticed that something was different about Annie.

“Why are your arms all hairy, and mine aren’t?” Grace asked.

“Granny said hairy runs in my genes,” Annie announced nonchalantly.

Grace looked puzzled. “What does that have to do with anything?” she demanded. “And why does Harry keep stealing your pants?”

Well, how do you pass the time between Thanksgiving dinner and dessert? If you are possessed of an excess of snark, you have little choice but to make up ridiculous jokes around a pun that catches your fancy. It is the way of the Snark.

The punkin pie was fantastic, by the way.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English degree-holder, a southern liberal, and an adult amateur equestrian who doesn’t match her saddle pads. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!

  1. Hi Snark on the Side,

    Your blog is very entertaining — nice joke about Harry running in your jeans.

    I was writing to see what your book review policy is. Do you review ebooks on your blog? Mine is about graduate school, and it includes a fair amount of snarkasm. If you think you might be interested, please send me an email.
