A riot broke out in the dining room this Thursday when an overcooked turkey was declared "good enough," by family matriarch, and previously unchallenged head-cook, Grandma. Opposition leaders began pushing for honey baked ham after the smoke alarm interrupted the football game. Grandma served the turkey anyway, saying, "it will have to be good enough, it's not like I can get a ham this late anyway."
Uncle Bob and the cousins broke dishes, while chants of "ham is hope" erupted from the Indiana family. Grandpa attempted to broker a peace deal, but Grandma abruptly ended negotiations after the china cabinet was broken. The vegan coalition proceeded to eat. Outspoken meat critic Anne later claimed, "we would have ignored the carnivores anyway."
A consensus eventually formed among protesters for Aunt Martha's promotion to head cook for Christmas. However, opinion waned when Martha declared that she'd be fixing fish.
The riot dissipated after the mashed potatoes and green bean casserole were sampled. Uncle Bob later said, "I guess we were really here for the sides all along."
