Not for you British folks...

Build a multi-part food can with the different foods of Thanksgiving, one part is turkey, stuffing, and gravy, another part could be vegetables, and another part could be sweet food such as pies, yams, and jello. Plop it all down on a plate, microwave it, and voila! Instant Thanksgiving dinner.

       Awwww..   

       On second thoughts (having just read the idea), sod it. You can keep your can, I'll just make a nice roast this sunday.

       Well, to be more politically correct, you can celebrate the holiday representing the beginning of religious freedom from Britian if you want to.   

       I would take a real cooked dinner before a can any day.

       //the beginning of religious freedom from Britian//   

       We need one of those - it's just that the date isn't defined. (I thought thanksgiving was all about sharing food with the injuns? Peace and goodwill, plenty to scoff and sports on the telly?)

       Jeez. Why stop at a can? Go all the way, à la Fifth Element, and do Thanksgiving in a pill.

       We have a similar idea here in Oz except you have to chase it through the bush, it's called a' UTE' stacked with crocs,kangaroos,camels and wild pigs.

       Our family very often does Christmas-in-a-bottle. We don't worry overmuch about the actual food.

       Thanksgiving in a can = Pabst Blue Ribbon in Kentucky..

       Not for we lot in England? And just who invented All-Day Breakfast in a Can, hmmmmm? Yummy bits of chopped scotch eggs, baked beans, sausage and bacon all chopped up and swimming in a light tomato sauce...... um... well, it SHOULD be really good, right? I mean, it isn't Marmite, but still.   

       T. in a C. reminds me of my brother in the military reserves, who once, for the sake of expediency, piled salad, roast beef, gravy, potatoes, carrots & apple pie with whipped cream into a cup and ate it all with a spoon. Maybe this could be a niche market...

       By Christ! Which army gives its reserves salad & whipped cream for rations?
General Washington, Sep 09 2002
  

       Well, not the Territorial Army in the UK, that's for sure.
