I’ll admit to giving serious side-eye to the thought of JJ Abrams reviving the “Star Wars” franchise again by directing Episode VII (which comes after “Return of the Jedi”) — especially since he directed the new “Star Trek” movies and I tend to believe people should pick a damn side.

This insanity tends to arrive in stages as you sink deeper into the Thanksgiving fever dream. After the jump, a few universal facepalm moments that arise when you visit your hometown for Thanksgiving – in GIFs! Keep reading »
