1. When your uncle brings up how those red Starbucks cups have started a war on Christmas:

Fill his cup with red wine until it’s overflowing and declare, "Now that’s a red cup we can all get behind!”

2. When you grandma mentions how we should build a wall to keep out the "illegals":

Slop tons of turkey and stuffing on your plate until you've built a food wall to separate yourself from the rest of the family.

3. When your grandma brings up Lisa’s beautiful babies and asks when you were planning on having some of your own:

Take her to the toilet where she can meet her food grandbabies.


7. When your sister-in-law asks how you can be against killing animals and not against killing babies:

Start choking on your broccoli. Once everyone has surrounded you, turn the cough into a sick beat and start breakdancing.

9. When you hear any of the following: "Shouldn't it be #alllivesmatter?"/ "We shouldn't let any refugees in--unless they're Christian."/ "If Rachel Dolezal isn't black, how is Caitlyn Jenner a woman?"

Lift up your hands and fly out of the room, out the window, and out of this world.
