    Ruin Thanksgiving in four words.

    That's the challenge.

    Give me a four (4) word sentence that explains how you ruined Thanksgiving,

    or, theoretically, how one might ruin Thanksgiving.
    We need funny people.

    As someone who spent more Thanksgivings than I can count (which I showed up to without complaint and just sat with a plate of safe side dishes without saying anything btw) explaining that no, still don't eat turkey, yes, turkey counts as meat, yes, it matters if there's meat in the x, y, z, no, I don't want to 'just try' the meat-based whatever....

    about half of you can bite me!


    BTW, I hate Thanksgiving. Big dead bird holiday.
