Watch a Turkey Fashion Show From 1951

What's worse than being a turkey on Thanksgiving? Being a turkey on Thanksgiving in 1950s Georgia.

Before facing the ax, turkeys in Griffin, Georgia, suffered a much greater indignity: a fashion show. Costumes in this 1951 newsreel include a football player and a beauty queen. These are nice, but the turkey dressed as Snow White takes the cake. She is joined by Seven Dwarfs played by her little chicks—"soon to be orphans," the narrator gleefully exclaims.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dr. Seuss Is Getting a Funko Pop! Doll

Several characters from the world of Dr. Seuss have received the Funko Pop! treatment, including The Grinch, Horton, and Sam I Am. Now Comicbook.com reports that the man behind the whimsical stories is being immortalized as his own cute vinyl figure.

Dr. Seuss (real name: Theodor Seuss Geisel) is one of Funko's first new releases of 2019. The children's book author is depicted in his iconic gray suit and bow tie, with a copy of The Cat in the Hat tucked under his arm. He measures 3.75 inches tall—so he'll stand up to any other full-sized Funko Pop! dolls in your collection.

The Dr. Seuss Pop! is set to ship out some time in February. That means fans can get him in plenty of time to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day, a.k.a. National Read Across America Day, on March 2. Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904, and if he were alive today he'd be turning 115 this year.

You can preorder the figure for $11 from Entertainment Earth. And if you're looking for more ways to honor the writer's legacy, check out these 10 stories behind his most famous books.

If you plan to watch the big game on Super Bowl Sunday, and also anticipate eating your body weight in food while doing so, then the aluminum foil aficionados at Reynolds Wrap have something they want to show you.

You can now satiate your appetite without moving a muscle or missing a play, thanks to the Reynolds Wrap Hunger Harness. This $5 “wearable snack pack” has plenty of pockets to hold your appetizers, main course, snacks, and beverage, all while keeping your food nice and toasty. Essentially, it’s a mini kitchen you can wear like a front-facing backpack or a baby carrier, because after all, snacks are precious cargo.

Want to nervously eat a dozen buffalo wings while you yell at the referee on your TV screen? Just tuck them into the upper thermal pouch in your Hunger Harness and you’re good to go. Want to make sure you have enough tortilla chips to last through the halftime show? There’s a side pocket for that, too—plus an insulated slot for your queso or dip of choice.

A built-in food tray rests on your lap and “turns you into a human table,” and there’s also a pouch for your can of soda—or more likely, your can of beer.

The Hunger Harness will be sold in waves in limited quantities. (It's currently sold out, but will be restocked again.) Keep checking the Reynolds website for updates, and if you're thinking of ordering one for yourself, please heed this advice from Reynolds: “Use caution when handling hot food and beverages.” Lovers of lava-hot pizza rolls, you've been warned.
