Yummy! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Saucy little things, aren’t they?

You know how they harvest cranberries, right? Better check the vineyards to see if the soil replicates the geological column in miniature.

What came first, cranberries. blueberries, or a different common ancestor?

If cranberries evolved from blueberries, how come there are still blueberries? (or vice versa)

Checkmate, evilutionists.

I always reply “If Americans came from Europeans, then why are there still Europeans?”

That’s the most common version I’ve heard. I’m Canadian, so I’m particular to, “If bacon comes from pigs, why are there still pigs?” It’s not a perfect analogy, but those making the original argument are usually too slow to notice anyway :-)

Without pigs, there would be no way to bring home the bacon!

Were cranberries on the ark?

Of course! They’d need them for when they eat the turkeys on Thanksgiving. (Isn’t that in the KJV?)

Well then, I hope they had plenty of sugar with them.

Of course. They go perfectly with roast dinosaur.

A timely observation, especially seeing as how, here in the States, we just had National Dinosaur Dissection Day.

I’ve heard Deinonychus makes FANTASTIC stuffing.

Cranberries were sweet before the Fall – all they had to do was dry them. And get to them before the T. rex did.

I thought tyrannosaurids only preyed on coconuts before the Fall, as Ken Ham alleged God having said so.

Then why was sugar still sweet after the fall?

Maybe the sugar didn’t fall quite as far as the cranberries?

My version of “Why are there still Monkeys”:

This is true.

But little known is the fact that the coconuts back then stood 10 feet tall and had spiked tails and teeth the size of steak knives.

Strange place, the Garden…
