Warning: Graphic turkey violence.

Did you ever wonder how they choose which turkey gets pardoned by the president?

A bloody farm fight to death obviously.

"Gobble Games" - featuring a "cameo' by Obama - imagines a world where tribute turkeys need to tear each other apart for their freedom.

Remember their sacrifice as you're stuffing yourself with them this week.

Cameron Diaz hosted SNL on Saturday for its Thanksgiving episode, and this might be the best skit of the night.

With the help of Diaz, the women on the cast performed a song about being back home with your parents for the holiday, and - you know - mooching, napping and eating way too much food out of bowls.

Remember that family that rapped about their Christmas pajamas last year? Don't want to remember that?

Well either way, they are back again and jumping on the Meghan Trainor parody bandwagon, with a song about basting turkeys.

Warning: Very SFW.

Believe it or not, people have been cooking all kinds of savory meats in their dish washers since the 1970's. Reknowned chef, David Burke, says that can even include the star of your holiday feast! Sealing the bird tightly in a number of Tupperware containers and running it for a few cycles will apparently do the trick. It probably isn't the best way to get that classic golden sheen, but it will definitely be a conversation starter around the dinner table!

Several attendees at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade allegedly found shredded confetti strips made from confidential documents belonging to New York City's Nassau County Police Department, according to the local TV station WPIX. Ethan Finklestein, a Tuft University freshman and one of the several parade-goers who noticed, says that he found legible imprints of phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers and police incident reports on the confetti strips, including an arrest log that read "At 4:30 A.M. a pipe bomb was thrown at a house in the Kings Grant' area." The Nassau County officials told the station that they will be launching an investigation and reviewing the department's procedures for the disposal of sensitive documents.
