Happy Thanksgiving: 50 Funny Americans We're Thankful For (PICTURES)

It's Thanksgiving. And we admit that, over here in Britain, we understand very little about Thanksgiving, other than a) it's American and b) it's about giving thanks.

And while we might whinge about our American cousins from time to time, we do, of course, love them too (they're family, after all). So we thought we should embrace the spirit of Thanksgiving and say: thank you, America. Thank you for all the people below. Because they're 50 of our favourite funny people on the planet, and they all come from your little ol' country. Well done you!

So getting clicking through our gallery to find out who they are - in no particular order - and do let us know which funny Americans you're thankful for too, in the comments below.

(Note: We came very close to including Donald Trump, but then realised that while he is extremely funny, we're not really that grateful for him. Sorry, big man.)
