Are you one of the 66% of Americans who secretly don't like classic Thanksgiving food but pretend to enjoy it? Or maybe you're dreading Turkey Day because you know you're going to be forced into a problematic conversation with a racist relative.
Well maybe this is the year you avoid the turkey and the tension, and just eat out. Because, really, don't we all just want to spend this precious day off work not cooking and eating a giant delivery pizza instead?
