Happy Thanksgiving from the Barbie Pond

Locals in NW DC will of course be familiar with the Barbie Pond on Ave. Q, which is currently showing a painstakingly accurate re-creation of the First Thanksgiving:

A small, mossy water feature in an urban home's front yard. Ivy grows on the ground all around it, and a small, spindly tree is behind. A platform is built just above the surface of the water in the pond. Three Barbies in pilgrim costumes sit at the table, with two more standing at the ends of the table. Inflatable turkeys are hung from the tree, as well as a sign reading "GRATEFUL". A series of topless Barbies are buried chest-deep in the dirt in front of the pond, with their arms raised above their heads and small plastic pumpkins on their hands.
