Sing with me!

IIIIIIIII saw Santa made of strawwwwwwwwberries. And Rudolph cookies - even a sandwich too. 

I would have gone for, “I saw Rudolph kissing Santa Claus,” but the chances of a child walking downstairs to find that is slim to none.

Thanksgiving is a time of thanks, but also a time of very important questions. Such as, is Thanksgiving when “planking” was invented? (picture 1) or, was this “kids table” picture the inspiration behind the famous ‘Full-House’-Olsen-twin coined catchphrase, “You got it dude!” (Picture 2?) We’ll never know, I suppose. What I do know just made up, is that the pilgrims and Native Americans (picture 3, clearly an original, well preserved photo) worked together to invent, what we know today as “The tuxedo shirt” (picture 4.) So enjoy these pictures and, as Christurkey Aguilera once famously sang, “don’t hate them ‘cause they’re basterful” (picture 5.)

See you next Thanksgiving, awkward families (insert creepy winky-face-right-angle-neck-tilt here.) Can you guess which picture that one refers to?
