Oh, Pat. Your brand of humor on social media never ceases to give us a good chuckle. The longtime Wheel of Fortune host shared a Thanksgiving update recently, assuring us that he’s going vegan for the traditionally meat-centric holiday.
Hey, to each their own. We could all probably benefit from dialing back the bacon, beef, and butter in place of some extra veggies. But sorry, Thanksgiving is not the time for it. At least, in our minds, it isn’t. Wheel of Fortune icon Pat Sajak is willing to give it a try, though.
Other than the turkey, the sausage dressing, the bacon in the green beans and the butter, we’re having a completely vegan Thanksgiving. I hope it’s a wonderful day for you and your family.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) November 24, 2021
Oh, got it. So it’s just a traditional Thanksgiving for Pat Sajak this year. His joke is giving us a few ideas, though. Can we start claiming veganism in parts of our meals? Maybe I had a vegan lunch. The bun, toppings, and french fries were all vegan—everything except for the burger patty itself. We like where your heads at, Pat.
It’s honestly hard to comprehend what a vegan Thanksgiving entails. We’re sure at least a few of you Outsiders are on the meatless, dairy-less train. What are some of the best options for traditional dishes? It seems like a decent stuffing could be in the cards. A green bean casserole, perhaps? Then again, what Thanksgiving dish isn’t entirely built on or slathered in butter when tucking into the feast?
And please don’t take this as ridicule, vegans. We’re genuinely curious. But like Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, most of us are still looking forward to our Turkey Day staples. And we couldn’t be more thankful.
‘Wheel of Fortune’ Icon Pat Sajak Comes With Jokes, But He’s Trying Not to Be Too Judgmental
The Wheel of Fortune legend has been a public figure for a long time. He puts himself out there regularly and knows it’s like to be judged. Recently, ahead of the holiday festivities, Sajak shared a Thanksgiving wish. And ambitious as it is, it’s hard not to be on board with it.
Neither Twitter nor Wheel of Fortune is the real world, but I much prefer an alternate universe where people are happy and friendly, where they don’t judge each other based on politics or race, and where they root for each other to succeed. I appreciate all that more each year.— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) November 12, 2021
His tweet is particularly relevant as we get ready to share tables with family and friends who may not share our same outlook. Here’s to everyone getting along and devouring some turkey together. Or meatless turkey substitute. Sorry, vegans.
