Ahh...Thanksgiving. That time of year when the smell of turkey is in the air, pies are thrown in the oven, and families and friends gather to stuff themselves with food (and as much quality time they can stand before they're ready to bolt).
It's also when some people who might not always be fluent in the language of food preparation (or anything else that has to do with the holidays) take to the kitchen.
I'm not sure that's something to be thankful for...

via: FlickrSo if you can't make them on the stove, as our friends above seem to have trouble with, why not stick them in the oven? Oh, yes, because your glass can shatter and squash your dreams.
via: ImgurBecause it's just not Thanksgiving without bringing the turkey hooker out!
via: Top. MeIf you stuck a charred turkey in a dehydrator and then back into the oven for 14 hours, it would still be more moisturized than this thing.
Life of Pie

via: BlogspotOne the plus side, this one looks better than the first attempt up above. On the other hand, this one appears to have a bit of striped camouflage thing going on.
via: CheezburgerThe whole escape plan is probably a good idea, especially this time of year. But I'm not sure swimming would really be the way to go.
via: ImgurNo thanks, foil turkey "watching me marinate." Send your guests home with decorations and traumatic memories.

via: RankerWhat are the odds of that? Her parents must be so proud.
via: IzismileI don't know what's more disconcerting — the sheer amount of potatoes coming out of the bowl or the fact they seem suspended in the air like globs of glue.
Stick It To Me

Fire in the Hole!
via: ImgurDo not try this at home. Or anyone else's home, either.
via: Most HappyNow there's dark meat, and there's dark meat. This is crossing that line quite a bit.
via: Top.MeThis is your veggie platter. This is your veggie platter on drugs.
via: Seriously For RealI hope whoever frosted this isn't allowed to go back to the kitchen again, as they need to leave a little more frosting for the rest of us to use.
via: PinterestPumpkin roll that monstrosity right on out the door. Do square things even roll?
via: TwitterThis year we're thankful for correct punctuation. Oops. Thank'ful.
via: ImgurWhen life hands you lemons, place the rinds under the skin of the bird to add a little "life" to the breast.
Chew On This
via: AmazonBlow a bird-flavored bubble! Actually, no, don't do that.
via: InstagramCall me crazy, but I thought cornbread was more like...squares of bread? That's more of a corn brick.
Roll With It
via: Acid CowThey're pre-made rolls! You just have to warm them in the oven!
via: Seriously For RealThe Thanksgiving caterpillar coming out a rainbow? Your guess is as good as mine.
How you doin'?
via: ImgurHey. He followed directions.
via: InstagramAt what point does one not realize that things are looking a little bit dark? No amount of whipped cream on top of this thing will ever make it okay.
via: She Walks SoftlyAny guesses? A turkey/anteater hybrid eating a mouthful of leaves, I assume.
via: RankerI almost think I would prefer one of the charred birds above to one that looks like it's growing moss on top of its skin. Actually, I'll just have salad.
