"Bird down! We've got a bird down over here!"
"Want I should pop the legs off this Barbie?"
"Where's the Gorilla Glue?"
"Thank goodness Grandpa isn't here to see what morons y'all turned out to be."
"Hey! I'm right here."
"Who dug up Grandpa?"
"The dogs have muddy feet."
"Good thing I had jerky in my pocket or I'd have been digging myself out for days."
"Just maneuvering to get a drumstick for once."
"I earned those drumsticks."
"Would someone put Petey's legs on a platter for Grandpa?"
"Anyone seen my watch?"
"You had it on when you were filling the turkey."
"Let's just call it Cracker Jack stuffing. Comes with a prize."
"Hey! There's an angry swan on the deck. Wants to know if we've seen his mate."
"And would you look at that? He has only one leg."
Enjoy your family this Thanksgiving. No matter how strange.
