Mexican Pilgrims?

We were at a going away party for our friend last night and I asked a really dumb question. It was one of those moments that as soon as the words escape, you regret them. I was talking to a friend from Mexico about his Thanksgiving and asked:

So, do they celebrate Thanksgiving in Mexico?

I had my first Turducken (a combination of turkey, duck, and chicken plus some stuffing) at that party. It did not inspire me to have it a second time. However, I had some of the best gumbo I have ever had. I asked what kind of gumbo it was and the response was:

It's 'what you got' gumbo.

Nutria. I don't think there were any in there. Mostly andouille, turkey, greens, etc...

Will, when I first read that, I thought you *overheard* someone at the party ask that. And I was thinking, "Oh no, that must have been Tommy."

Nope. I take full credit for the stupidity.
