Brag about yourself
Let's talk turkey. Whatever your Thanksgiving traditions, be they traveling to visit family (warning: there's some salty language in that clip), settling in for hours of football—NFL or otherwise—tuning in to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, preparing to get your holiday shopping on, or any number of other possibilities, chances are one aspect of your holiday involves turkey. And this time of year, there really should be a hotline you can call with questions about cooking turkey. Oh wait, there is one: 800.BUTTERBALL. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
