I won't shame anyone for liking what I don't like, especially when it comes to food. We don't get to decide what tastes good to us and what doesn't, after all, or we wouldn't be so fat. You like stir-fried cockroaches in an apple juice reduction glaze served over foraged kale jelly? Have at it, just please don't try to make me eat it and we're good. So opinions about Thanksgiving side dishes are definitely highly subjective. However, the worst Thanksgiving side dish is any dish made with sweet potatoes or yams with marshmallows on top. The DisseminationMonkey has spoken.
Drew's away doing family Thanksgiving stuff, so there won't be a Fark News Livestream this week. Send any complaints to elon@twitter.
A couple of things of note:
Farketplace will reopen this weekend for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday so you can share information about your own small business and buy some cool products and services from fellow Farkers. Bookmark it, check out the awesome stuff already listed, support your fellow Farkers, and be ready to tell everyone about how they can buy stuff from you. This is a creative and talented community, and it really is a joy to check out the Farketplace to see what y'all put up for sale.

Fark Weird News Quiz (brought to you by ox45tallboy)
Another fun time on the Quiz this week, where I learned all kinds of ways of sneaking some turkey into a dish for my family's "non-traditional" Thanksgiving dinner. On the Quiz itself, Two Dogs Farking made 1024, but we're not counting him because he greenlit a number of these stories. TheMothership took top honors among non-staff members with 993, followed by Evildog in second with 953 and coscausticevil in third with 952. The Third Man made fourth with 952, and Glockenspiel Hero made it into the top 5 with 931.
The hardest question on last week's Hard Quiz was about the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Only 42% of quiztakers knew that the event organizers had decided the mascot would be... a hat. Not a French hat like a beret, but a red Phrygian cap such as worn by the leader in our generation's most well known allegory of socialism vs. capitalism, "The Smurfs." I mean, I guess it's better than the unidentifiable blobs used by Japan at the Tokyo Olympics, and it could have been worse, they could have gone with mimes.
The easiest question on last week's Hard Quiz was about who to go to to get your Holy Ears edibles this holiday season, sure to make every forced family get-together somewhat more tolerable. 90% of quiztakers knew the ear-shaped candies were a joint promotion between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson, who have shown that even the fiercest rivals can bury the hatchet in the name of weed. Or capitalism, it's open to interpretation.
The hardest question on last week's Easy Quiz was about Wendy's new Frosty flavor for the holidays. Only 53% of quiztakers knew that if your Aunt Edna's apple cobbler she makes with the canned biscuits every year doesn't do it for you. you can hit up the drive-thru at your local Wendy's for a Peppermint Frosty. Which should be a perfect accompaniment to the peppermint schnapps you hid in your coat pocket in case the Holy Ears take too long to kick in.
The easiest question on last week's Easy Quiz was about which Canadian rocker celebrating his 77th birthday saw his first real success in an L.A. band called Buffalo Springfield. 95% of quiztakers recognized Neil Young as the artist. Incidentally, I have it on good authority that Neil's music goes pretty well with peppermint schnapps Frostys and Holy Ears.
If you missed out last week, now's a great time to catch up on the Fark Weird News Quiz. Congratulations once again to the winners, and we'll do it all again on Friday once we survive Thanksgiving.
