In honor of Movember, that great month where men grow their lip sweaters for charity, pastry chef, Miss Insomnia Tulip of Lou Lou P’s Delights, has transformed Burt Reynolds into a cream-filled pastry.

“Thanksgiving appetizer” might seem like an oxymoron, because, well, the entire day is dedicated to stuffing yourself. Do you really need a snack before the main event? I say yes, for a few reasons.

If a child’s lunch box has to be “supplemented” on any given day, the parent gets fined. Strange. Yes. Canadians!
