<i>The League</i>:  A Thanksgiving Episode for the Rest of Us

Whenever I watch The League, I expect to be slightly horrified, fairly disgusted and thoroughly amused. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect form "Thanksgiving," given all of the conventional tropes of a holiday sitcom that it promised, but by the end of the episode, I was choking on my own laughter (but thankfully, no one's beloved class pet). This highly underrated comedy managed to take every clich├ęd part of a Thanksgiving episode, flipped it over and nailed it from behind in front of its loved ones. Here are the banalities the writers used, and how they managed to cover them in the funniest filth I have ever seen.
