Default Have a happy (Facts of Life) Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

And to celebrate, here is a special Eastland Thanksgiving song, set in November 1980, inspired by Mindy's real-life comment at the first November 1980 table read, "Where'd everybody go?":
(Sung to the tune of "Where is Mr. Turkey?")

"Where is everybody?"

Where is Miss Mahoney?
I thought she's in the lab
I guess she's in the classroom
Her hair is looking drab

Sobbing, sobbing, sobbing
I can hear her say,
"My role on this show's cancelled
Before Thanksgiving Day!"

Where is Mr. Bradley?
I really do not know
I hear he's just been fired
And now he's off the show

Calling to his agent
He says he's been made 'free'
So now he'll have to star in
A film called S.O.B.!

Where are all the Lost Girls?
Where did the students go?
Molly, Cindy, Sue Ann,
And Nance replaced by Jo

Locked down in the basement
They'll have their dinner there
They'll be allowed back upstairs
If they don't bother Blair.

And now the show has Howard
A chef who's very tall
His role won't last much longer
Not much past early Fall

Working in the kitchen
But rarely heard or seen
It won't take long for Howard
To exit Eastland's scene

So very many people
Were written off the show
In order to expand roles
Of Nat, Tootie, and Jo

And keep the giant line count
For Lisa Whelchel's Blair
With Warren Littlefield counting
They didn't stand a prayer!

I really love how you explain on each line what really happened to each of the cast (i especially like the line about how the 'Lost girls' will only be allowed to come back upstairs if they don't bother BLAIR hee hee!).

And poor MISS MAHONEY + MR BRADLEY:they'll never recover from being written off the show lol!!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL THE AMERICANS!!!!!

Thanks! Did you do anything special? I guess in the UK you don't have something similar.

I applaud anyone who can go veggie (or even kind of veggie). My body, however, requires a little more protein, so I need some meat.

My least favorite kind of meat is ham.

I like pate! Sausage is good but I'm more of a bacon guy.
