This turkey bites!

I'd like to join Publius in wishing the entire MilPub - patrons and waitstaff - the happiest and most peaceful of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving has always struck me as among the most American of holidays; invented here, founded on a half-ounce of history larded with ten pounds of myth and outright bullshit, centered around a perfectly denatured "religious" occasion and (in modern times) represented by eating too much good food and professional sports.

And since you can't get more Thanksgiving than Star Wars, here's my gift to you all this year: this is an "All-Terrain Turkey Eliminator" walking tank, as envisioned by my little man, who cares nothing for the holiday other than he gets a week off from school.All the best from the four of us here in Portland to all of you, wherever you are.


  1. All the best to you and yours, Chief. And thanks for everything.

  2. That picture is awesome. Thanks for sharing and your hard work Chief.

  3. All the best Chief . . . now back to work.
