I think we need a Thanksgiving rodent.

After all, we have a Christmas Mouse.

What about a Vole?

OP, Anderson Cooper is hosting the "CNN Heroes" tribute on Thanksgiving Day. What more do you want?

I vote for The Thanksgiving Nutria.

R3, you read my mind. I was also going to say the nutria!

Voles are cute, but lemmings seem more consistent with the season.

Are we going to eat it?

Can someone provide the most gourmet nutria recipe?

To go with the giant bird we're expected to eat, why not the world's largest rodent, the might Capybara?

New tradition! Kill and stuff the nutria (the tail is the delicacy, save that for Thanksgiving eating), and put that nutria under the tree as a fun surprise for the kids. Or in their stockings.

I'm not so sure about the nutria -- they seem to have mood swings.

Newton the Thanksgiving Nutria often stops by my mouse nest for hot cocoa and gingerbread!

I don't know about Nutria. I was once tortured by an aging Serbian who demanded that I sell her a spool legged harvest table without charging tax.

She told me I was ridiculous, that the piece was crap, that she knew of a cheaper one in much better condition elsewhere. All the while her beady eyes were glaring at me from beneath a Nutria fur hat the same boring brown as her hair. Even her hands looked like those of Snow White's evil queen - but multiple diamond chip rings on every dagger-like finger.

Her throat had those two vertical lines of flesh surrounding her windpipe (wanted to punch her so hard) and her mouth was not so much sphincter as it was a crack in that fucked up face.

She actually whipped out her checkbook and wrote down her idea of the price and dropped it in front of me. I tore it in half, gave it back to her, and told her I was too poor to survive an IRS audit.

So, No, I don't see Nutria as a thanksgiving rodent.

or tiny nasty little shrew.

by Anonymousreply 2811/22/2010

One word would scan better with "thanksgiving" than another long word.%0D %0D So that leaves us with "rat", "shrew", or "vole". I vote Vole, although I think "shrew" also has its points.

I was going to suggest a thanksgiving platypus, but it doesn't have the same cachet as a monkey.

I wish it could be a honey badger, but they're from Africa and they're mustelids.

The Thanksgiving Rat would be appropriate as there were no doubt plenty of rats that came over on the ships with the English Puritans!

R60, so what do capybaras do on Thanksgiving?

Since both the capybara and the nutria appear to be basically giant guinea pigs, I suppose they could be stuffed and used in lieu of a turkey.

The nutria is not a cute little rodent suitable for a holiday. It is a voracious monster that can grow to 350 pounds and has been know to kill cattle in Texas. My nephew hit one driving early one morning and almost died, and the damned thing just sauntered away. They're not nice. You hear stories of how they form gangs and attack isolated homesteads - they seem to watch the houses because they know when it's a woman alone there. They break through windows and will attack and kill humans if they get in the way when they mob the kitchen. They're particularly vicious because they use their long fangs to snap at the soft tissues, especially a woman's nethers and occasionally a man's bottom and testicles. Three teens were nearly castrated in Louisiana when they tried to trap one. The fangs jut out like something in an old vampire movie, and they harbor terrible tropical bacteria they carry from their pestilential homelands. Nutrias also eat cats. My aunt in Alabama lost 16 of her cats to a gang of nutria and it really had a depressing effect on her happy home. They eat everything but the heads and they return the heads to the door of the house the take the animals from. It was horrible. My uncle lost his mind over it and went out and trapped as many as he could and went bankrupt attempting to make a venture out of their fur - it turned out the "fur" is toxic and causes mental retardation in children.

I vote for the Norway Rat because Norway is such a beautiful, peaceful country.

Honey, you do need to get out more.

I know they're scary, but you're anthropomorphizing them just a bit.

Here's Dave Attell on Insomniac with some Orleans Parish sheriff deputies shooting them in the canals (that was a great show!)

Nutria all the way, or as the locals call them, "nutra-rats." Their teeth are the perfect Thanksgiving color.

And nutria balls, like gar and alligator balls, are delicious. And no, not talking about their testicles.
