If meal planning, family drama or the daunting task of cooking has you stressed ahead of Thanksgiving, laughter just might be the best medicine.
Luckily for those of us needing a dose of holiday humor, if there's one thing the internet does well it's memes and jokes.
So while we can't keep that one weird uncle from saying something wildly offensive at your dinner, we can collect the best of those memes and jokes for when you start to disassociate midway through the appetizers.
