Sarah Silverman Recalls Her Traumatizing Childhood Thanksgiving on Funny or Die
Thanksgiving is nearly here. What does that mean? All our favorite animal loving celebs are dishing on why they don’t dine on turkeys (or any other animal) during the holiday.
On Funny or Die, Sarah Silverman narrates as her animated six year old self faces a traumatizing Thanksgiving. The video, Sarah Silverman’s Special Thanksgiving (or Thankskilling), certainly is special. She recalls how when growing up in New Hampshire, her father took her next door to Vic’s Farm to pick out a turkey. As soon as she had the cutest most charismatic one in sight, Vic slaughtered it there in front of her.
However, Sarah’s Dad remembers it differently. He remembers the animal being a pregnant cow and Sarah never wanting to eat meat again after that day. When asked why he brought his six year old daughter to witness the slaughter of a cow, Sarah’s father says, “I have no f^@%!#& idea why I did it.”
Sarah goes on to talk about the true meaning of Thanksgiving in her signature Sarah Silverman way. Check below the jump to watch the full video and ponder what you think is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
