We came, we saw, we ate, we watched football, we punched walls, we kissed strangers, we rejoiced, we wept, we rolled trees (or we poisoned them). You know, just another Thanksgiving weekend in the great state of Alabama, always first alphabetically in the nation, if nothing else.
So let’s get right to all the downright insanity that occurred last weekend — at least out in the open. I’m sure things got much freakier behind closed doors, but that’s your business. (Unless someone tells me about it.)
Mobilian gets her Little Debbie on again
I am not really sure why or how Mobilian Marie Katz started her very unique Black Friday tradition of dressing up like an advertising mascot and then breaking out dance moves in the Greenville, Ala., Walmart, where her family goes for Thanksgiving every year, but I also don’t care because it’s pretty fabulous.
Katz has dressed as Little Debbie and the Quaker Oats guy (gal), whose name is apparently Larry (who knew?) and this year she brought Little Debbie back, and her son got in on the action by dressing as the iconic Little Debbie Christmas Tree cake.
And, I mean, why not? You know what they always say? A family that dresses up like snack cakes and spontaneously dances in the Greenville Walmart together, stays together.
You can see the video on Katz’s Facebook page. At press time, it had been viewed more than 21,000 times.
Toomer’s Corner South?
I don’t want to beat around the bush or rather, hedges. We all know things got a little crazy on The Plains last weekend!
After the Auburn Tigers upset Alabama, with the added bonus of ruining any chance the Crimson Tide had of getting into the playoffs, Tiger fans headed to do what any football fan would naturally do to celebrate a victory: They threw toilet paper up into trees. After seeing images of the iconic oaks in Toomer’s Corner this year, let’s just say we hope no one in Auburn had to poop on Sunday.
Closer to home, we hear Auburn fans who were watching the game at Callaghan’s rolled the not-so-iconic tree in its parking lot after the victory. Probably not as gratifying as throwing up a fresh roll of Charmin into Toomer’s oak, but surely a close second? Somehow I doubt they cared all that much.
Congrats to Auburn and Alabama on another great matchup in this storied rivalry! A game like the one is what it is all about! War Eagle and Roll Tide!
