69. Something like this
"Dear God, we thank you for this meal and for this turkey which once was alive and breathing, brave and free, watching over its chicks with care. Anyway, its dead, and we are going to eat it now. Amen."

Even when I was a kid, when I was trying really hard to work at this religion thing, before I threw in the towel in college and admitted I'm an agnostic... I could never understand how blessing food would somehow make it better for me? Don't get me wrong, I'm always grateful for a meal, as I realize that others have none. But some religious types act as if food is poison if you don't instill it with magic blessing goodness.
