A few of Arnold Jansen op de Haar’s seasonal inspired observations on the Holland Park Press website:
‘The presidential turkey is a metaphor for contrasts in the USA. America is a land of gargantuan wealth and flagrant poverty, home to the most obese people in the world and slimming pills for pencil thin actresses, of chaste nudity in Hollywood films and very explicit pornography, it has a record number of firearms used for self defence and the most murders, a very strict judicial system and the highest number of prisoners, finally consuming is its religion.’
‘The presidential turkey symbolises divergence in America. But it also personifies a national symbol at public holidays. Many Americans, wherever they may hail from, enjoy a turkey dinner at Thanksgiving and Christmas.’
You disagree? Well, we would like to hear from you.
