Yes, folks it is that time again. Time to gather around the table with family and friends, and be thankful you don’t own any of the following turkey-like masterpieces. At least we hope you don’t!!
Now we know it’s a tradition to stuff the turkey, but we prefer cornbread to this:
For those into simpler crafts, we have this example:
One of those easy printed pillows where the back and front are just sewn together. Really though, the front face on view of a faded turkey is just not the most attractive thing in the world, and this one is no exception. We think we prefer this view.
Now, we actually have to admit that we rather liked these little candles.
We just thought they were cute, but you are going to have “gobble” that meal down quick before they burn out, if you actually use them for your feast. When the candles are done, the guests have to leave, right? Maybe they are more useful than we thought.
This next item truly falls into the “What is it?” category.
We like covered dishes, are especially drawn to chicken ones (We once went to a sale, where they literally had 100s of chicken covered dishes. Never seen such a thing before or since), but this is just a monstrosity. We can’t tell what that head is supposed to represent, but it really creeps us out. Deb suggested it was part octopus. If it weren’t for the tail, there would be no chance of deciding it was actually a turkey. Not to mention, this is one of my least favorite colors of glass. Thank goodness they taped the top on, as we wouldn’t want this to hit the floor and shatter. Well, probably we do, but we are not going to be the ones responsible for that.
We think the makers just got lazy here:
Lastly, and perhaps most creepily (yes even creepier than Dr. Zoidberg) we saw these Thanksgiving figures:
They kind of look like Peanuts knock-offs, but as adults. There is something incredibly maniacal about that middle woman; it might be the size and redness of her mouth. We can sort of imagine that she might be eying her fellow diners as a meal instead of the lovely feast.
We hoped you enjoyed our Turkey feast, or if not, you got a good laugh. We wish everyone a peaceful Thanksgiving shared with those you love best, and we are very thankful for all our loyal readers!!!
