Thanksgiving is a time of the year when families get together and are grateful for what they've got in their lives. But what happens when you forget to buy a turkey? Here's a hilarious joke about a man desperately trying to fix his mistake. 


On the night before Thanksgiving, a butcher was about to lock up his store and go home. Before he can get to the backdoor, a man started pounding on the front door begging the butcher to let him in. 

"Please let me in. I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife's going to kill me if I go home empty-handed." The butcher sympathizes with the man and lets him in. 



The butcher told the man that he has to look around as he's almost sold out. The man nodded and nervously waited while the butcher opened one freezer after another. 

He opened the last freezer and noticed the last turkey. He brought it out to the man and placed it on the counter. "That one is too skinny. What else you got?" asked the man.

Knowing that there were no more turkeys, the butcher went to the back, waited a few moments, and brought out the same turkey.

The man still looked nervous and said that this one is not any better. The man had an idea, and told the butcher, "Tell you what. Give me both of them."

A day before Thanksgiving, a father from Dallas called his son, Eddie, and said, "I'm sorry to tell you this, but your mother and I are getting a divorce."

"I can't stand the constant nagging and moaning anymore. I'm telling you this first because you're the elder." He hangs up after telling Eddie to inform his sister, Julie, about the divorce. 



Eddie called Julie and informed her of the divorce, and they decide to stop the divorce at any cost. Julie called her father and told him not to take any actions before they arrived and hung up.

"You must NOT get divorced. Promise you won't do anything until I get over there. Eddie and I will be there with you tomorrow. So don't do anything until then."

The man put the phone down, looked over to his wife, and said, "Great news! Eddie and Julie are both coming over for Thanksgiving. What's better is that they're both paying for their travels on their own."
