7 Funny Thanksgiving Quotes Especially for Moms

Being a Mom 17

thanksgiving kids tableYou might not normally think of Thanksgiving as a "funny" holiday, with all the stress that goes along with it. Most moms are either cooking the meal, or battling traffic to get to the meal, or trying to wrangle their kids to stop messin' with their cousins and please eat the darn meal. Like I said, LOTS of stress.

So just in time, here are some funny quotes about Thanksgiving that will give you a giggle and help you appreciate all the wonderful things around you. And as a bonus, I also give you permission to have extra stuffing and two slices of pie. You deserve it, Mama. It's Thanksgiving!

"Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not a coincidence." -- Erma Bombeck

"I love Thanksgiving turkey; it's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts." -- Arnold Schwarzenegger

"My mother is such a lousy cook that Thanksgiving at her house is a time of sorrow." -- Rita Rudner

"You know that just before that first Thanksgiving dinner, there was one wise, old Native American woman saying, 'Don’t feed them. If you feed them, they’ll never leave.'" -- Dylan Brody

"I love chicken. I would eat chicken fingers on Thanksgiving if it were socially acceptable." -- Todd Barry

"My whole problem is that all of my favorite things at Thanksgiving are the starches, and everyone is trying to go low-carb this year, even a green vegetable has carbs in it." -- Ted Allen

"It's like being at the kids' table at Thanksgiving -- you can put your elbows on it, you don't have to talk politics ... no matter how old I get, there's always a part of me that's sitting there." -- John Hughes

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!


Happy Thanksgiving!
