"What if I came to your home,killed half of your family members and kept the others as slaves? What if I chopped off the heads of those dead ones and kicked around with it? In addition to giving the others smallpox, syphilis and gonorrhea? Then, to show my appreciation for killing your family, I'll prepare a great feast,(on your table of course)and call it "Thanksgiving!" Every year I'll have this feast in honor of my slaughter; Thanking my gods for helping me to destroy your family."
