“Cooking tip: Wrap turkey leftovers in aluminum foil and throw them out”

American cartoonist and writer Nicole Hollander is credited with the popular Thanksgiving line:

It’s not known when Hollander first wrote this, but it was included in the book The Fifth and Far Finer than the First Four 637 Best Things Anybody Ever Said (1993) by Robert Byrne.
