Unsheathe your corn cobs and load your potato guns, because the War on Thanksgiving is nigh.
As you mash you potatoes and baste your turkeys, you might not have realized that a war is raging right outside your kitchen window–the War on Thanksgiving.
According to Donald Trump and the geniuses at FOX News, someone somewhere maybe wants to change the name of Thanksgiving (but probably not), and that means it's time to rile up our dumbest, most frothing countrymen.
THANKSGIVING SAVED: President Trump Says Democrats HATE Thanksgiving www.youtube.com
Yes, the War on Thanksgiving, much like The War on Christmas, is upon us, and Twitter is reacting in turn.
Be careful leaving your homes, as gangs of radical liberals are roaming the streets, attacking anyone who so much as thinks about turkey.

Many brave Thanksgiving warriors are even writing letters to their loved ones as they traverse the mashed, war-torn terrain splattered in gravy.

After all, Thanksgiving shouldn't be about war or discontent or whether or not the president of the United States is a racist. This Thanksgiving, let's all try to remember that Thanksgiving is really about the genocide of indigenous people, and how most Americans are pretty much just cool with that. Happy Thanksgiving!
Gravy Take: There is no #WarOnThanksgiving. Which is... actually... kind of astonishing when you think about i… https://t.co/iGslwkXbG2— Heather Archuletta (@Heather Archuletta)1574875634.0

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
A vibrant summer earworm.
