Watch Gary Oldman's historically accurate anti-Thanksgiving tirade

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor Oldman proclaims that England is glad Americans "aren't British anymore." His actions suggest otherwise.

On Monday night, comedian Tracy Morgan delivered a delightfully absurdist Thanksgiving message on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not to be outdone, ABC's late-night host, Jimmy Kimmel, brought on British actor Gary Oldman to offer a rebuttal of sorts.

It's odd that each November we have a national "divorce party" from England, now our closest ally, Kimmel says, setting the scene for Oldman's special Thanksgiving message. Oldman starts out by saying Americans are hurting England's feelings by throwing their annual "big, fat food orgy" to celebrate the historic escape from English taxes by a bunch of whiny, self-centered pilgrims. It goes downhill from there.

Watching a food-throwing, foul-mouthed tirade from a self-proclaimed "noted Englishman" isn't your typical Thanksgiving entertainment, but it's a nice reminder of where the Turkey Day tradition comes from. And it's always good to hear the other side. Especially when salad is tossed about. Well played, Kimmel.
