Jimmy Fallon knows how to brighten every holiday with humor, and Thanksgiving is no exception.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon host aired a segment highlighting the viewers best "Thanksgiving Fails" on Wednesday night, sharing the worst of the worst.
From undercooked turkeys to exploding chocolate fountains, the answers shared via social media with the hashtag had Fallon and his crew rolling with laughter.
Check out some of the tweets the late-night host loved most:
One year my grandmother kept complaining about the awful snacks. She was eating potpourri. #thanksgivingfails— Christina Post (@Tinamarie0713) November 21, 2017
One year my mother in law went to make gravy. She poured the gravy in a strainer but forgot to but a pan under to catch the liquid and poured it all down the sink. We had can gravy that year. #ThanksgivingFails— lilybell (@lachute9) November 22, 2017
During the holidays I tried out my new chocolate fountain. While I was dipping in a pretzel it broke and fell inside. It caused it to spin out of control, I stood and watched. I didn’t know what to do. I was frozen. Hot fondue went everywhere and then hardened. #ThanksgivingFails pic.twitter.com/GFfiTo7BNN— Kelsey Hernandez (@KelseyChole01) November 21, 2017
Fallon took a week off from his nightly show, and when he returned on Nov. 13, he got a warm return with a chilling surprise from singer Taylor Swift, who wasn't scheduled to appear on the program.
"When we were little, my mom would walk us to the store — me and my sister — and we would hold hands. She would squeeze my hand three times and say, 'I love you.' And I would squeeze back, 'I love you, too,'" Fallon said of Gloria at the top of the show. "Last week, I was in the hospital and I grabbed her hand and I squeezed, 'I love you.' I just knew we were in trouble."
Later in the broadcast, Swift performed her new song "New Year's Day" as a surprise to Fallon. Without altering the lyrics, she sang out "you squeeze my hands three times in the taxi," and Fallon's fellow cast members said he (and they) instantly "lost it."
"It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance," Tonight Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo said after the show.
