Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation Starters

You know how people who have fancy dinner parties sometimes pass out conversation starters? Well I decided to make my family dinner more interesting with some homemade convo starters of my own. Take that Martha Stewart.

I pulled out some of my mom's fanciest paper and most expensive pen and got to work. Feel free to use my ideas to spice up your own Thanksgiving.

Here are a few of my most brilliant:

  • How many run-ins with the law will my brother Jake have in 2012? (You can substitute Jake for a member of your family who is frequently arrested.)
  • Which person in the room would you most like to fight and why?
  • Would you rather pee your pants at church once a month or be called "Splatter Pants" for the rest of your life?
  • What are your 10 most favorite things about Emily?
  • If you had to change someones pants in the room, who would it be? (This question is especially relevant considering there is more than one person with incontinence problems who will be attending tomorrow.)
  • What was your favorite part about puberty?
  • Why are you better than everyone else in the room?

I have a feeling Thanksgiving will be an eventful holiday.


  1. Love it. I'm going to share this on FB so that all can read your wisdom.

  2. My 10 most favorite things about Emily:

    1. She only hangs out with other girls named Emily.
    2. She has a gold medal in gold digging.
    3. She is amazing at peeing in public places
    4. Her husband is hot (he also only hangs out with other guys named Jared)
    5. I don't remember her baby's real name because she only refered to him as "pee baby" for the first 3 months of his life
    6. She is a good kisser
    7. Because of Emily her parents get an automatic free pass into heaven
    8. Her reverent and humble blog makes mormons look good
    9. She somehow tricked the boys and girls club into letting someone with a maturity level of a 6 year old to be in charge
    10. She is living proof makeup is a miracle worker.

    How's that for a conversation starter?


Speak with your heart or your private parts, either one is fine with me.
