yeah: don't do drugs on the holidays, kids, or you'll end up making as much sense as this guy when you get back to post here.

let me rephrase that would freedom day be considered thanksgiving because its all one world instead of countries.  Fry and leela both say "they" are american in one episode, so would thanksgiving still exist.

Probably, but maybe that tradition died out. But I don't think "Freedom Day" is a good episode for Thanksgiving. No one really gives in that episode. (If they do, then someone please tell me what they give.)

Can you rephrase again using proper grammar and punctuation?

I recall them saying they were American in one episode.  It slipps my mind though.  I didn't relize that punctuation and grammer was so important to some people but ok whatever floats ur boat.

Punctuation and grammar are useful for communication, as it actually helps people understand what you're trying to say.

Case in point: your post, and the mass of confused responses.


In any case, while America still exists, it isn't an independent nation anymore. It could be a state, or it could just be a region that still goes under the name America, the show never makes it clear. Earth has a single government, and all parts of the world are under it's control.
Freedom Day is more like your Forth of July than Thanksgiving, though if it's commemorating any particular event in history, we never find out.

If, hypothetically, the show DID do a Thanksgiving episode, it would probably be about something else entirely to the original holiday, or would just simply miss the point of the day.

I'm assuming that they would make the turkey extinct and perhaps make them eat some sort of octopus or somesuch. Which would be unfortunate because cephalopods are chewy and flavorless.
