Smallpox pie

Since I'm not allowed to read from James Loewen's works at the family Thanksgiving dinner, perhaps I will show my true feelings about the day ala Marge Simpson, via my food prep:

Smallpox pie

  1. Prepare one recipe Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle
  2. During assembly, insert small plastic dolls/figures and fresh cranberries into the trifle
  3. Dot top with fresh cranberries
Present with a flourish, announcing that the one who raids the most native graves (ie., finds the most doll parts) while avoiding contracting smallpox (eating a cranberry) wins.
