Crazy, Stupid Thanksgiving Tales


Thanksgiving Eve.

To prepare for tomorrow’s holiday, I’m scanning the inter-webs for crazy, stupid Thanksgiving stories so…

…if any crazy, stupid stuff happens at MY holiday party, I can think, “At least we’re not the family where…”

🤪 Mom and auntie ate way decided Thanksgiving would be a great time to try edibles. They each gobbled one. After 15 minutes, they thought, “These aren’t working.” So each ate another. Mayhem ensued.

👴 Grandpa announced at the dinner table he most regretted divorcing Grandma (while his new wife sat at the table, gaping in horror)

🧀 Grandma made her famous cheese ball with spoiled cream cheese and everyone ate the “garbage ball” because they didn’t want to hurt her feelings.


…when some crazy, stupid sh*t happens at your Thanksgiving festivities, remember:

You’re not alone.

(And stay tuned for an email on Friday about the persuasive power of “You’re Not Alone Marketing.”)

If you have any crazy, stupid Thanksgiving tales, please reply and share it. I’d love to hear your story.

Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving. 🦃 🥂
