What weird things do you discover at your parents' house when you return for your annual Thanksgiving meal? Figurines, creepy dolls, seashell soap, or strange paintings, perhaps? Jenn, who works for Cards Against Humanity, asked for pictures of weird stuff people found in their parents' homes over the holiday, and the Internet delivered.
"Please show me pictures of weird stuff in your parents' house," she asked and then clarified, "I want to see the seashells in the bathrooms people."
It turns out that people's parents had a LOT of strange, charming, and ridiculous objects lying around their houses.
This one wasn't quite a seashell in the bathroom, but it was in the same category.

Twitter user Amuly21 shared three of the objects in their parents' curious collection.They are a standing suit of armor, a Shakespeare bust that opens a hidden door when you tilt its head backward, and a larger than life penguin statue. "WONDERFUL TRIO," Jenn approved. Twitter agreed that these objects look like they belong in the house of Batman or maybe the Addams' Family.
Twitter user ZacBruin revealed this truly creepy version of Santa that lives in his parents' home.If this almost-adult-sized, shoeless Santa robot wasn't creepy enough on its own, take a gander at what it does when you turn it on. Zac added, "You can press a button and in a scary gravelly old man voice he says 'Soak soak soak my aching feet' and the legs/feet move up and down.'"
Deana's mom still has this turtle planter that Jenn gave to her when she was just six years old.

Just when we'd thought we'd seen the craziest stuff, it got weirder.

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.
