3."I thought it would be a funny prank to put a rubber chicken in the oven on Thanksgiving. My mom would laugh and laugh. Ho ho ho, there's a rubber chicken in the oven, what a gag. 13-year-old me didn't realize that normal adults usually preheat the oven before putting the turkey in."
4."Aunt opened the pressure cooker without releasing the pressure first. Went about as well as you can imagine."
5."My 10-year-old brother decided to demonstrate how to properly body slam himself onto a bed to the cousins. He proceeded to hit his head on the windowsill behind the bed and crack his head open. We could see skull. 15 stitches later, we got to eat dinner."
6."I heard some screaming from outside my apartment. I opened the door and saw this lady running to the dumpster with a turkey still in the pan on fire. She threw it into the dumpster, which then caught fire. I called 911 so the fire department could put it out."
7."My mom dropped the turkey platter. It shattered, turkey and porcelain shards littered the floor. Thankfully, most of the turkey was salvaged due to the five second rule. Some of us had shards of turkey platter on our plates but it wasn't a big deal."
8."My brother took my two-week-old son to check his diaper during dinner. Came back with diaper in hand saying it didn't look right. He proceeded to smell it and say that something was wrong. So then he tasted it. Everyone was flipping out. Turns out he filled a clean diaper with pumpkin pie filling. It was hilarious."
9."I was at my friend’s conservative Catholic family’s house for Thanksgiving, and his older brother told everyone that my pal had gotten a tattoo. His parents were pissed, and forced him to show them the tattoo. When they saw that it was a dollar sign on his left butt cheek, there were tears."
19."Someone's dog got into the trash and ate a lot of turkey, ham, and everything else that didn't make it to a human's stomach. As some family members were leaving, the dog let out a loud yelp and sprayed said family with projectile diarrhea. First time I got to hose anyone down and hopefully the last."
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!!! Hope you have a better holiday than these folks did.
