Ever since I was a little boy man since I was a little boy I've always wished they had been some wise Indian woman back in the day who said to our people before the pilgrims sat down to dinner. She said to them don't feed them!

If you feed them they'll never leave!

And that food must have been that good man now like my mom's cooking Oh God, if my mom had made that meal for those pilgrims.

They would have swam back without the goddamn Mayflower.
