Kids Hilariously Butcher The Thanksgiving Story [Video]

thanksgiving story

Take solace in the fact that no matter how historically questionable your relatives’ version of the Thanksgiving story may be, they are not as far off as these kids.

These sharp young historians absolutely butcher Thanksgiving’s origins, providing explanations that involve everything from taking over “the African-Americans’ land” to Calvin and Hobbes. As far as what the original spread included, one young’un guessed salami and pickles, because it’s what his grandparents put out every year.

And of course, the whole thing comes to a grinding halt when the kids go all sparkly-eyed over pie, apparently their favorite subject. At this point, the video wouldn’t really be all that different if it featured adults.

We’ve already given you a Thanksgiving video that might help you gain control over a dinner conversation run amok, but if that just doesn’t help, pop in the buds and enjoy this one for yourself.
