Turkey, yams, pies, stuffing, beets, cranberry sauce, green beans -- all this and more is very likely to end up in your stomach by Thursday night. It all seems so innocent and glorious at the beginning. You've had a light breakfast in order to build your appetite. You've embraced the sweatpants-as-formalwear trend. You promised yourself you'll enjoy each dish without going overboard.
Yet something, be it the delicious smells of the food or the fact that this entire day is centered around eating (and gratitude, and, well, pretty awful European settlers), always makes you go a little too far in the stuffing-your-face department. It's that moment, after desserts are passed around and the TV is firmly tuned to football, that all decorum goes out the window and Thanksgiving dinner guests are strewn around the living room in various states of consciousness.
These sloths get it. These sloths are us. I know after a hearty turkey meal, it is literally as if I am hanging from a branch in a Central or South American rainforest with my giant toe-claws, happy to sleep about 16 hours a day and wondering about my endangerment status in my spare time, right?! But if you still don't get it, these 17 sloths will make you feel truly understood.
Talk about relatable.
