To be fair, turkey can be pretty good when prepared correctly (brined), but 99% of people are completely incompetent and overcook it to death with very little seasoning. Along with the rest of the brown/tan flavorless filler that goes into Thanksgiving dinner, it's just disgusting. Most people have no idea what good food tastes like, so they convince themselves that it's good and compliment the cook.
Fuck, for the past few years I've hinted that I would do the majority of the cooking for Thanksgiving (I'm a NEET, what else would I be doing), but my retarded aunt takes it upon herself even though she's the worst in the whole fucking family. Nobody wants the young male nerd to cook even though I'd do a much better fucking job.
