Because Not Listening To This Song On Thanksgiving Would Be Un-American

Spend the next 20 minutes listening to Arlo Guthrie talk about his favorite restaurant.

While the House Un-American Activities Committee didn’t use listening to Alice’s Restaurant at Thanksgiving as a litmus test for Americans’ red-bloodedness, we can only assume it was because the song hadn’t been written yet.

If you’ve never heard the song before, we can only assume it’s because you’ve just arrived from a Syrian refugee camp, in which case we need to explain that it’s a terrifying crime story about littering and father-rapists and if you like this country, you must listen to it every Thanksgiving (and probably before and after so you can show off to your new American friends how you’ve memorized their Thanksgiving song.)
