Twitter user MustachedPat shared this photo of what is supposed to be an Elvis bust.
He found this curious treasure in his uncle’s house when he visited for Thanksgiving. But people thought that this guy was a far cry from the King of Rock. Jenn said, “This has to be an anime guy.” Someone else said, “It’s the guy from the new Final Fantasy.” Yet another opinion is that it is actually an interpretation of Justin Trudeau.
Just when we'd thought we'd seen the craziest stuff, it got weirder.
Jordan shared this picture of a pilgrim and her child, made of corn husks and the spirit of some vengeful Thanksgiving demons, probably. “Wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it lording over all of us at the table,” Jordan said of the dolls, which have been staring out at the table for over 35 years.
Another questionable Thanksgiving decoration looks over the crowd at Twitter user Vegan Mortensen's house.
This turkey, who may appear normal and kind at first glance is quite frightening after you inspect it closer. Its plaid eyes are piercing and we have questions about its feet. Why are they different? Was this modeled after a real turkey? We need some back-story here.
Lots of people showed themed bathrooms that were painstakingly covered in coordinating decorations.
One person’s parents had a bathroom entirely covered in elephant statues. Another person’s guest room was covered in hunting paraphernalia. A third was overwhelmed by figurines and pictures of frogs fishing. This one might take the cake, though. It is dedicated to unicycles. “This is one of many unicycle-themed elements of that bathroom,” Nick added.
We're just going to leave this here...
Matt Diller said, “My sister found an OJ Simpson trial themed Russian matryoshka doll set that my grandparents apparently had.”
Even though many parents shared an obsession for the same kinds of objects, a couple of them were very aware that their spouse’s love of certain things was a bit over the top. Leah shared this adorable story about her dad’s love of chicken statues.
“I’m trying to find my dad’s three chicken statues and my mom housed at me to shut up about them bc she hid them,” she wrote. “Also, when they were getting new kitchen wallpaper ten years ago, one of the borders in the sample book was chickens and she tore the page out of the book to keep him from seeing it… When he saw the torn page he asked about it and she was like ‘don’t worry about it’ and after a long pause he said in a very serious voice ‘is chickens isn’t it’. Then after a minute of silent staring he said “that’s the one I want.'”
When someone asked whether or not her dad got the chicken border, she said, “No but when he didn’t I bought him another chicken statue that was holding a chalk board and he just wrote CHICKEN on it in big letters.”
We love how much her dad loves chickens and how much these families hold these quirky, cute, and hilarious collections near and dear to their hearts.
