Thanksgiving According To Stock Photos

Spoiler alert: this is not real life.

This sweet multi-generational family stock photo is not real life.

They are too happy. Too neat. Too cute with their baby pumpkins. No.

This family is really into their cutlery usage all proper-like.

No. Not real life. Fork and pointer finger for maximum fork-shoveling.

There's no way that you're serving plain veggies from a salad bowl on Thanksgiving.

Or a full uncooked pepper on top of corn-on-the-cob. Nope.

Orange juice at Thanksgiving dinner? And that tiny cornish hen?

Nope. Fake life.

Oh, same family different clothes? Still nope.

That little girl is getting real pumped about that fake cornish hen. Mmmmm.

Everyone tilting up their head in admiration at the woman who slaved over the meal?

And her dad is just like, "No way, you did this?" (That seems real life, maybe).

Cheers to fake dinner and turtlenecks!

Not sure why you're cheers-ing to anything with that delicious turkey sitting there all untouched.

Aww look at your fake ugly sweaters.

Homegirl on the right looks like she wants to end fake Thanksgiving and all the weird love pronto.

You do not look that perfect after baking a pie like that.

And why is your pie done but your turkey is still raw?! WHAT IS HAPPENING?!

(This is what baking aftermath looks like.)

Hmmm, your kitchen is very clean considering all of the cooking going on here.

And if any family crowded in the kitchen like that while cooking was going on, all hell would break loose.

Again with the whole raw pepper and orange juice?

That turkey would not fly IRL. (Pun not intended, but go with it).

Thanksgiving at my house this year -- dress code: baby blue and white.

No Thanksgiving looks this clean. No normal meal looks this clean.

It's not a newborn baby, it's a fake baby turkey, chill.

This is so creepy, but do this with your families and send all photos our way for the lolz.

Are you going to stuff that raw turkey three stuffing nuggets at a time, lady?

IRL: grab a handful and shove it in.

There is NO WAY that everyone is listening attentively to a story while there is uneaten food on their plates.

No one looks this pretty, this put together, or this clean while fake-basting a turkey.

Not real.

These kids are not sitting at the adult table. They're just not.

Sitting at the kid's table until you're 30 is a thing. These kids are sitting at an adult table of lies.

Either way, weird.
