The Dysfunctional Family Thanksgiving 2013

Let’s face it, there are many families that will be popping a Valium or other drugs to get through the Holidays . Oh, yes. In honor of these brave family members, The dysfunctional family Thanksgiving 2013 may need a song. I have written a new parody to the tune of the hit song, We are Family, by Sister Sledge. Here is a snippet of the chorus: We are family, We Live dysfunctionally, We are family, Everybody needs therapy…..#pearlsbookLet’s face it, there are many folks in  families who will be popping a Valium or other drugs to get through the Holidays .  Oh, yes.  In honor of these brave family members, I have written a new parody to the tune of the hit song, We are Family, by Sister Sledge. The dysfunctional family Thanksgiving 2013 may need a song.  Here is a snippet of the chorus:

We are Family

We live dysfunctionally…We are family…Everybody needs therapy…..

I imagine the first Thanksgiving was not that pleasant.  I bet some of those  sistah Pilgrims were mad at their husbands for dragging them across the big pond.  I bet they threatened to swim back to England many times.  “Oh, really!” said the hormonal sistah Pilgrim. “I’ll show you and sail that Mayflower right back home.  Momma told me to marry that cute English butcher.” Maybe this is why turkey is such a tradition to be consumed at Thanksgiving  since it has a chemical in the meat that puts you to sleep. The Pilgrims actually were pre-yankees and if I-95S had been invented, they would have hit the road….. bound for Dade County.
