Ex-New York Times critic Sam Sifton is now the paper's National Editor, but he's got a new Thanksgiving book out this Fall called Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well. He's been doing a bunch of fun interviews, like this one in which he describes the "single most important culinary element" of Thanksgiving: "Bounty. That bird should be bigger than you need... There should be rivers of gravy and mountains of dressing. Pies should be visible in the distance, on sideboards, many of them." And the good people at Buzzfeed have taken an illustration of his head and plopped it into Quickmeme, and overlayed some of the best Sam Sifton quotes. And a meme is born.
