Ben Franklin & The Politically Incorrect Turkey Farmer

Did you know that the day we celebrate as Thanksgiving was supposed to be a fast? That is what Ben Franklin says of the first American overeatathon. It took one politically incorrect farmer to change the course of history. When the government tried to impose a fast, he called for a grand feast—thanksgivings—so that Americans could celebrate their bounty and nourish their bodies, not lament their hardships through hunger. We love Ben Franklin at VICE for writing, "Rules on Making Oneself Disagreeable" and penning such a nifty cartoon. Support or Die!
