I just realized... today is Columbus Day! Let's celebrate all the people who live in Columbus!

Let's see... there's babsbunny, sqrlly, sonicblu, maxgoof... awolf... [Edit: and xolo and colinft] [Edit: and mycroftb] aaaand that's it! That's everybody.

Eat a bowl of Columbus chili today in their honor, won't you? Well, actually it's called Cincinnati chili, but they serve it in Columbus too.

I thought a lot more people than that lived in Columbus.

And it's not Columbus Day, it's Thanksgiving!

It is too Columbus Day on this side of the 49th parallel!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, though. :}

Hey, I'm on the same side of the 49th parallel as you, and it's definitely Thanksgiving here. But happy Columbus Day, anyway.

I was being poetic, using "the 49th parallel" as a picturesque term for "the US-Canada border".

I'd been thinking of all the places in the world named after Christopher Columbus: Colombia; Colon, Panama; Columbia, SC; Columbia MD; British Columbia; Colombo, Sri Lanka; Columbine; the District of Columbia...

Then I thought it would be better to celebrate by watching a Chris Columbus movie. But it was too late.

The Chestershire Cat factory is not located in Chestershire, but in Wales.
As far as this "Columbus day" thing you speak of, I think you must be referring to "Columbo day," which was on TNN recently.
