Fun T-Day angle! Happy Thanksgiving!
By: Cranky on November 27, 2013
Or you can always get a turkey TV dinner and just pop it in the microwave. I wonder if they've shipped the Butterball hotline over to India yet? It'd be hilarious listening to a vegetarian tell me how to cook meat.

I thought that was part of the 21st Century dowary: You get their daughter off their payroll, they feed you on holidays forever. And in case of a divorce later, you include their turkey dinner obligation in the settlement.

sounds about right!

Ha! Probably truer than we think. Happy Thanksgiving!

Too funny. I wonder if they would instruct you about using the leftovers in a quiche. ;)

You made me laugh out loud with the red thermometer that pops up when it's ready. I've noticed something like that with Willy Dunne Wooters. I know. TMI Love, Janie

It's reassuring to know that I've been doing it correctly all these years!!

Oooohhhhh, you've destroyed my faith in males taking over the kitchen duties! Funny, though.

I don't need a guy to tell me how to cook a turkey. In fact, I don't CARE if a guy gives me a prostate exam (as long as I don't see a hand on each shoulder). But, I will NOT have a guy give me a massage. To quote George Costanza, what would happen if "it moved"?

I did hear about the new male review on the Butterball stage, but I wasn't quite picturing them looking like Duck Dynasty stars! I thought more like Martha Stewart with a tuck! lol

This reminds me of the scene in the movie The Santa Clause where all of the divorced dads with kids are eating at Denny's!

Sadly it isn't Thanksgiving in the UK just another ordinary day. No turkey. Hope you have a great day!

I shouldn't laugh too hard at this . I may cook some things but a turkey is beyond my experience. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

I am laughing. Butterball turkeys are incredibly easy - and I'm no chef. I would appreciate a fudge hotline, though. I don't always get the consistency right. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mrs. C. xoRobyn

Thanksgiving is going to Hell in a handbasket. Great story!

I don't know why guys couldn't just buy those sodas that come in all the Thanksgiving dishes flavors.

Hey, that is pretty much how I've done it. No reason to make it diffcult.

As I sit up late waiting for my pumpkin cheesecake to cool so that I can put it in the fridge, I got a good laugh from your two dudes! Reminded me of the green bean casserole guys. Have a HAPPY Thanksgiving!!

Great post.I really enjoy Turkey, we usually have ours at Christmas.
By: John on November 28, 2013
If you really want to have a drama free Thanksgiving, then I suggest you dash the turkey and try a roast chicken instead. It's much easier and no fuss at all. Maybe next year.

Yep, that's what I'm afraid it would be like if SM was in charge of the turkey. Although he did teach me to cook when we first wed. I could only prepare fudge and scrambled eggs. Not together. But here we are 40 something years later and the man has forgotten how to warm water on the stove for tea. Something about selective memory. Happy Turkey Day, Oma Linda

oh bwa hahahah I'll bet that Butterball hotline is based off shore and those poor folks probably have never cooked a turkey before.....I can hear them now ...... Actually in my family a lot of my brothers and nephews know how to cook those ginormous birds....even my dad could make a mean gravy. Have a great day Stephen and all the best to your family!

Really? Someone thought having women answer the turkey hotline might be a gender issued that needed correcting? While I don't have a problem with men manning the phones, the fact they are talking about it like they need to be "high fived" makes me suspicious of their motives. BUT...I am so glad this happened because it led you to post a really funny post. If I ever call the hotline I hope I get Ernie. Hope you are having a great day, Chatterbox...

LOL that's hilarious! I'm kind of like a guy when it comes to things like that (you think I'm joking, but I bought a ready-made meatloaf that I just needed to microwave & killed it because I forgot to remove one of the plastic covers on it.)
By: The Bug on November 29, 2013
LOL - you are too funny! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day. It seems that if a guy had to ask for help cooking a turkey, it would be much easier for him to just watch a youtube video.
