Weekend WTF Special Edition: Thanksgiving Tragedies

by Erika Nicole Kendall

This Thanksgiving, many of us gathered together with family to laugh, love and chow down.

Not everyone’s Thanksgiving meal was so… wholesome.

Of the hundred-or-so snapshots I saw of Thanksgiving meals, I was particularly intrigued by these two, below. If you can identify what, on Earth, is taking place in these photos… it’d be much appreciated. For my sanity.

Yes, yes, that’s macaroni and kraft…. ’cause that certainly ain’t cheese.

On this one… I just need someone to tell me what, on Earth, is going on here. I just don’t understand.

Re the second picture: I’m still trying to figure out what the hell is it! :O

And when you find out, be sure to report back. LOL

I think it’s ham with mustard on it?! Looks disturbing.

When i say that Mac and Cheese….LMBO I died!

Erika November 27, 2010 - 12:46 PM

That mac and kraft had me emotional. I was like, c’mon… do it right, man, or just find another creative use for that cheese. It straight up hurt my feelings. LOLOL

OMG–I think you just summed me up EXACTLY: this entire post has HURT. MY. FEELINGS! Thank God it’s out there though, and not in my belly! UGH!

That looks like a burnt Cheese covered brain in juice!!!!! Who in the Hellen Keller ate that?!?!?

Shay November 27, 2010 - 12:52 PM

Noooooooooooooo not my mama biscuits! Well not really, but the Mac n Cheese is um… and that 2nd thing is umm..well what IS it?

Lisa November 27, 2010 - 12:59 PM

That second thing is a ham…I think. And looks like they thought a mustard based glaze would be good…BUT I could be ALL WRONG. I’m hoping that’s what it is. And the mac and processed cheeese food is just sad.

EWWWW! How sick! Well, this is why I brought my own food to my husband’s family thanksgiving. the ONLY GREEN item at the table was my Salad. I had turkey – and Salad. None of those people could be trusted to prepare anything wholesome. In Fact – any healthy eating was MOCKED! Sigh. My People my people…..

I am bringing a fruit salad and a HUGE tossed salad to the family Christmas gathering so I can have something to eat. Those folks thought canned green peas and canned string beans were sufficient vegetables for the Thanksgiving meal. I had to wait to eat until I got home.

Really? @ the first picture. I mean, just – REALL-Y? My 9-year-old niece could probably make a better pan of macaroni and cheese than that! LOL

In the second picture, it looks like someone attempted to cook a ham using a crockpot/slow cooker. I don’t think that was the best idea, but the person might not have had access to an oven at the time. I looked at the picture again, and that yellow-ish stuff could just be fat. URGH.

The first picture: really? Maybe it is some kind of tradition or someone let the small kids cook, but even at 6 or 7 I could be bothered to cut up real cheese into chunks. That is just disgustingly sad.

The second: it took me a very long while but I think it is a ham. At fist it looked liked they pushed in some pineapple chunks late, but I think that trying to use a mustard based sauce, even though I’ve never heard of such a thing, makes more sense given the color.

Nikita November 29, 2010 - 10:37 AM

The top one – sad. Mac and something.

The second one looks like a ham and someone tried to glaze it and put butter,margarine or something in the glaze. That is why it is floating on the liquid. Nobody told them any better.

Mia November 30, 2010 - 7:34 PM

I agree with Lisa….my first thought was a ham glazed in a mustard (type) base. That Mac and Kraft is hilarious!! I wouldn’t even have touched that if I saw it before I started clean eating.

i know i’m late on this one but i think it’s a zombie thanksgiving and the last one is brains…

It’s now 8/2011 I’m just seeing this I had to just say Ewwwwww to the 10th power. Who in the world told you it was OK to put orange squares of plastic replica “cheese” gooey substance in Mac and Cheese? I’m pretty sure the box of elbow macaroni has a recipe on it for mac and cheese and it does not call for squares of goo. The second pic I’m not sure what it is, looks like someone cooked “Wilson” from Castaway…YIKES

Angie August 31, 2012 - 11:00 PM

lmbo…I always get so emotional when I think about Wilson. That was hilarious!
