We promise that this is the last Thanksgiving post for 2011, but we had to share this Saturday Night Live skit which made us feel really good about our completely weird family holidays.
Remember the Aunt who kissed too much? We remember running under the table, hiding in a closet, climbing a tree to get away from her clutches. When she finally caught up to us, we'd be smothered in the cloying scents of cheap drugstore perfume as she held us to her too ample bosom then covered our faces in orange frosted lipstick. We were mortified....until we saw this SNL skit.
Jacob brings his girlfriend Lucy to meet his overly affectionate family for Thanksgiving. We're talking years of therapy from this family. Trust us - you'll never have good thoughts about Chapstick or Brussels sprouts again.
Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
