Thanksgiving Jokes



Maxine's Tips for Entertaining!

1. When one hosts a dinner party, it is essential that all the place mats match, or, at the very least, that they all come from the same fast-food restaurant. 

2. Entertaining in your backyard? The key to a nice-looking lawn is a good mower. I recommend one who's muscular and shirtless. 

3. My favorite party game is "Pin the Cleanup on the Guests." 

4. Nothing in the world is quite so entertaining as pouring old milk into new containers before having guests over. 

5. A good host must always be a STICKLER for attractive food presentation! I always take the foil COMPLETELY OFF the TV dinner before serving. 


6. Getting your home in tiptop shape for a party can be fun if you think of it as kicking ! 

7. Take short cuts! I used to offer my guests instant coffee. They kept whining for hot water to go with it. 

8. The best way to prepare a roast is to make an aluminum foil tent over your roasting pan. Similarly, the best way to prepare for relatives is to pitch a tent in the backyard and stay there until they leave. 

9. When decorating for a party, be creative with regular household items. Some people might just see a moldy shower curtain with torn eyelets. What do I see? A new tablecloth. 

10. The better you cook, the more likely your guests will return. Which is why I'm not usually too hot in the kitchen.

~Robert Fulghum, Author of 'Words I Wish I Wrote'~

"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A 
happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we 
would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with their imagination."


"The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven"

~ Jack Prelutsky ~

The turkey shot out of the oven 
and rocketed into the air, 
it knocked every plate off the table 
and partly demolished a chair. 

It ricocheted into a corner and 
burst with a deafening boom, 
then splattered all over the kitchen, 
completely obscuring the room. 

It stuck to the walls and the windows, 
it totally coated the floor, 
there was turkey attached to the ceiling, 
where there'd never been turkey before. 

It blanketed every appliance, 
it smeared every saucer and bowl, 
there wasn't a way I could stop it, 
that turkey was out of control. 

I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure, 
and thought with chagrin as I mopped, 
that I'd never again stuff a turkey 
with popcorn that hadn't been popped.

A 4-year-old boy who was asked to return thanks before Thanksgiving dinner. The family members bowed their heads in expectation.

He began his prayer, thanking God for all his friends, naming them one by one. Then he thanked God for Mommy, Daddy, brother, sister, Grandma, Grandpa, and all his aunts and uncles. Then he began to thank God for the

He gave thanks for the turkey, the dressing, the fruit salad, the cranberry sauce, the pies, the cakes, even the Cool Whip.

Then he paused, and everyone waited--and waited.

"If I thank God for the broccoli, won't he know that I'm lying?"
