“Why don’t you eat fish on Thanksgiving?"/"Because Thanksgiving never falls on a fry day.”

People usually eat turkey—and not fish—on Thanksgiving, and there’s a riddle:

Q; Why don’t you eat fish on Thanksgiving?
A: Because Thanksgiving never falls on a FRY-day.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2006.
