As nice of a guy that Tebow is supposed to be, I am sure he would punch my mom in the mouth like the rest of us want to.

I'd like to have dinner with whoever (whomever?) knows the best restaurants.

The intellectual side of me wants Jesus, Einstein, Gandhi and oh lets say Carl Sagan over for thanksgiving. Good discussion and debate on science, religion, philosophy, meaning of life. My stomach would be overly filled but also my mind's desire for intellectual stimulation. And then maybe after dinner, we could all repair to the drawing room with a glass of sherry and/or coffee and listen to a nice string quartet or some jazz music.

OTOH, I also would rather just have my latest Asian pron star infatuation Evelyn Lin over for thanksgiving. Her wearing a nice tight one piece creme colored spandex mini skirt outfit and a g-string underneath. We could make some initial moronic small talk ("so how did you get into the industry?", "what do your parents think of your career choice?") and eat turkey.

Or just skip all that shiat and go straight to some serious monkey sex.

I'm favoring the latter on reflection.

exick: Thanksgiving with Tebow would be nigh intolerable. I barely have room in my heart for the annoyance at the 10-second hypocritical sham of a prayer I already endure from my family before Thanksgiving dinner.


Eh, at least it seems Tebow practices what he preaches. I mean, you gotta respect the man off the field.

I never got the Tebow-hate (other than the fact he is a sub-par QB). The guy seems like a class act off the field.

cryinoutloud: Shee-it. I'd rather have George Bush over for Thanksgiving than some sports star. It's bound to be more interesting.


Hitler.
 
2012-11-21 03:14:22 PM  
Who wants to eat with Obama. His skank ass wife would make green beans the main course, and ration it.
 
2012-11-21 03:14:54 PM  
Rather have Obama. The guy would be able to hold up his end of the conversation.
Tebow would spend too much time on grace, when we all want to eat.

//and can you imagine watching the game with Tebow?
 
2012-11-21 03:17:19 PM  
I'd invite Benito Mussolini and Vladimir Putin.

After dinner they could wrestle.
 
2012-11-21 03:17:29 PM  
Tebow would be okay.

I could thank him for booting the Steelers from the playoffs last season, and then he can give me judgmental looks as I get hammered on pumpkin ales and red wine.

cryinoutloud: Shee-it. I'd rather have George Bush over for Thanksgiving than some sports star. It's bound to be more interesting.


Honestly, I would have to agree. Any current/former president would be interesting to sit down with for a few hours.

/Goes for most world leaders as well.
 
2012-11-21 03:20:16 PM  
My first choice would be dinner with Wallace Shawn.

UtileDysfunktion: Turkey day dinner with Lady Gaga would be... different.

He'd probably rock out with his cawk out.

64% of men said they were most looking forward to watching football on TV

Am I living in a different version of reality than the one this poll is from? Of all the people I've ever known, not that many even have televisions, let alone care about football. I certainly don't.

Maybe this was just a really terrible multiple choice question?
 
2012-11-21 03:22:40 PM  
Neither of those are real!
 
2012-11-21 03:23:48 PM  
I would go with Gaga because she's fairly hot and I don't give a rats ass about football or Sesame Street.
 
2012-11-21 03:25:16 PM  

Sticky Hands: L.D. Ablo: Having Tebow over would be great. My family would mock him and dish out shiat the entire time. Way more entertaining then the others.


note to self... never eat at L.D. Ablo's


Note to self: find a way to get invited to L.D. Ablo's.

Unless they're driving me home, I wouldn't want to invite a teetotaler to Thanksgiving. Otherwise I'm sure Tebow would be fine, though he would no doubt put a major dent in the leftover inventory.

Lady Gaga is pretty and slight, but there is the extreme attention whoring problem that she might not be able to turn off. She might also be put off by me, a musician that has only heard like two of her songs maybe five times total.

Big Bird? As others have said: cruel.

Obama: yeah that would go over GREAT with my in-laws, although if I could spend some time again with them using the bible to prove that he is definitely NOT the Antichrist it might go better.
 
2012-11-21 03:28:21 PM  
Susan Tedeschi ,Willie Nelson,and ZZ Top.Great stories,music,and smoke.
Oh yes,BBQ,potato salad,and pecan pie.

note to self: Preview is my friend. double check those bold tags. Then folks will know you are making a stupid "poop: it's what's for dinner" joke, instead of not wanting to see a ball player insulted.

I want to have dinner with Drew.
 
2012-11-21 03:32:12 PM  
Gaga + meat = Thank you?
 
2012-11-21 03:33:53 PM  
Thanksgiving dinner with Obama and Biden would be a farking riot, especially if we could loosen Joe up with a couple of those Presidential beers.

That being said, here's the person I'd most want to have Thanksgiving dinner with. She's cute, talented, quirky, and I have a huge fanboy crush on her:

/I'm sure someone will point out sharp knees and all, but this video made me totally fall in love with her.

The survey is obviously slanted.
Of the choices, Big Bird is the superior choice, though his attendance might dictate a veggie dinner. Tim Tebow is likely to recite one of those long-winded look-at-me prayers while the dinner gets cold. Lady Gaga seems like a nice enough person, but Big Bird has more humble charm. Really, who wouldn't prefer to converse with Big Bird?

The best Thanksgiving pie is sweet potato pie with pecan pie following as a close second.

"Tim, will you pass....uh...actually, will you please gently hand the salt to me?"
 
2012-11-21 03:37:09 PM  
Only if he takes his shirt off.
 
2012-11-21 03:37:39 PM  
I don't know why anyone would though. He is going to be interrupting you while watching the game, talking about what he would do if he was on "america's team".

I suspect that she might be the table.

Don't you love how the phrase "Mr. President" only seems to be used now when it's meant as a sarcastic insult?
 
2012-11-21 03:40:47 PM  

The_Sponge: This would be epic...if most of these people could magically come back from the dead and they are in peak condition:

Frank Sinatra
Dean Martin
Sammy Davis Jr.
Elvis
Don Rickles
Rodney Dangerfield
Brian Johnson
Mike Ditka


Don and Mike?

You are a cruel, cruel person

Invite Putin and Berlusconni. They will wrestle instead of dinner
 
2012-11-21 03:43:52 PM  
In honor of Tebow, i'd like to say grace. "Grace".
 
2012-11-21 03:44:17 PM  
I'd rather have Thanksgiving with Lady Gag Gag.
 
2012-11-21 03:46:53 PM  
I'd invite John Madden and his turducken chef.
 
2012-11-21 03:47:09 PM  
Having Lady Bird over for dinner? Eh, why not.
 
2012-11-21 03:48:00 PM  
I would like to have dinner with the rapper behind the Friday and Thanksgiving youtube videos
/Would drug him, punch, kick, stick a rusty pipe up his arse, and cut his tongue out
 
2012-11-21 03:48:50 PM  
What's a tebow?
Is that like a spatchcock?
 
2012-11-21 03:50:51 PM  
I wouldn't mind having DePrez over for Thanksgiving. We're having turkey so it's not like he's going to eat all the chicken.
 
2012-11-21 03:52:19 PM  

uncleacid: I'd stuff Lady Gaga.


i would like to work the camera while you stuff the Gaga, then maybe have a go at her myself if she was okay with wit that.

I had the opportunity several years ago to meet Caroll Spinney, the pupeteer/voice of Big Bird. Grade A class act, and he could switch between Himself, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on a dime. I only spoke with him for a few minutes, but it was such an amazing few minutes I would die to have enough time to eat a meal with him.

The President would be awesome too, but Spinney was part of my childhood. Given the opportunity, how could you pass that up?


/Apple pie, please
 
2012-11-21 03:54:25 PM  
Am I the only one who for some reason gets reminded of Bea Arthur every time they see Big Bird?
 
2012-11-21 03:56:00 PM  
Lady Gaga is the alternative?

Fark man, I don't want to have dinner with either of them.

i get reminded of urination when I see Big Bird

That'll change once we get a Republican back in the White House, the way God intended.

That's assuming it isn't just moved up to "your worship" or "your highness." Something tells me the Republicans tire of this silly experiment called democracy, and they'll try to ensure the next Republican president stays in the White House longer than FDR.
 
2012-11-21 04:06:11 PM  
In all fairness.... think about how awkward it would be to serve Big Bird a turkey for dinner... not to mention if you had Lady GaGa over for dinner she would try to wear the turkey... All you have to worry about with Tebow is a prayer...
