Watch: The National’s Subversive “Gravy Boat” Video

Check the subliminal messaging in this image of the sailors lying on the turkey in a sea of gravy in the shape of a “v” for vegan.

The National have made a Thanksgiving video for “Bob’s Burgers,” the animated TV show.

The group has done a remake of “Gravy Boat,” putting a dark, possibly vegan spin on it.

In the video, a group of sailors sing the ode to gravy, now turned into a dour funeral march, including the daft chorus, “Sailors in your mouth,” and are ultimately eaten by the Belcher family, equating the eating of animals with the eating of humans.

Check the video here.

And Morrissey offered a full-bore rant against President Obama for the annual turkey pardon, which Morrissey calls “Thankskilling.”

On the Morrissey fan site True To You he writes:

Thankskilling

Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!
As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey ‘meat’ is one of “our nation’s top killers”, causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.
Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House ‘turkey pardon’ is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.
And President Obama laughs.
