Sometimes you just have to know when to say no. I mean, come on Lady Gaga - a Thanksgiving special? What are you a cast member of Peanuts? A Muppet? This shit is ridiculous. Take your beef curtains and go do "weird" things like show up to see Grandma Abramovich at MOMA or something similarly "avant-garde".
Even Aunt Shannon knew when to say when after a work out at the Court Jester she would limit herself to only a dozen chicken wings and a Coors Light (emphasis on the Light!). True story, the Court Jester used to have a built in snack bar with booze. And you could smoke! The '80s were grand!
