17 Cringe-worthy Thanksgiving Fails


Thanksgiving isn’t always pretty.  Actually, if you’re not a chef, making a Thanksgiving dinner for all your family and friends can be really stress-inducing.  Just the thought of failure can send you into a tail-spin.  Ugh….please don’t let these awful fails happen to you.  Here’s 17 cringe-worthy Thanksgiving fails.

1. Cats got your dinner

The can will love to take a few nibbles out of your turkey, fresh from the oven, which leaves everyone else with less than half an appetite.  So, be smart and lock the kitty away.

2. Mom dressed up as indian

Yeah… don’t do this.  Halloween is for dressing up and Thanksgiving is for eating, ok?  But that little baby turkey is pretty dang cute!

3. A turkey hooker

Now, despite the terrible name, this little gadget is exactly what it says….an easy way to get the bird from pan to platter.  Have you ever tried to pick up a giant turkey with just your hands?  It’s no fun at all.

4. Ugh…your turkey cake shouldn’t look like that

Basically, people should just stop making turkey cakes because each one looks like a certain male body part instead…..

5. The classic ‘fire in the kitchen’

If you light the oven on fire, you can pretty much kiss your wish of a smooth Thanksgiving dinner goodbye.

6. Nobody likes their turkey blackened

Blackened chicken might be a thing but blackened turkey?  Yeah…not so much.

7. Cupcakes that look like they came out of the toilet

Frosting that looks more like poo isn’t exactly a favorite dish of ours…

8. Sunbathing turkey

We love tan lines over our holiday weekend…but not on our turkey.  That’s just weird.

9. Curvy turkey

This turkey girl has got some great breasts…literally.  We’re sure those turkey breasts taste delicious.

10. Turkey desserts

These are ugly and creepy.  We’re sure the idea for this came from Pinterest.

11. Stop with the turkey cakes!

Obviously nobody can draw a turkey without having a very dirty mind!

12. Turkey veggie platter

Serve this instead of turkey and we’re sure your guests will be surprised.  But, at least this one isn’t shaped like something terrible.

13. Too much turkey

Watch out kids, this woman ate an entire turkey by herself, as well as the rest of Thanksgiving dinner and, well, you can see the outcome.

14. When dinner is a fail

When your meat and veggies look more like plastic than real food…that is never a good sign.

15. Turkey cake

This cake is the only acceptable-looking one…but the fact that it bleeds candy corn and stuffing makes us all a little suspect.
