With Thanksgiving here and Christmas almost upon on, shops are selling decorations, people are putting up their Christmas trees and delicious recipes are being swapped with friends (and stolen from family).

And what better way to usher in the festivities than with a good ol’ joke?

How long do I microwave a 25 pound turkey?

That is the question millennials have been asking parents.

The joke, of course, is that you don’t microwave a 25 pound turkey. You cook it in the oven. And if you thought that was a legitimate question, you shouldn’t have moved out of your parents' house. Go back. Stop adulting now.

People shared their parents’ responses to the question, and they ranged from “HAHA SO FUNNY” to “CALL ME NOW".

Here are some of the best ones:

"Don't ever get married."

"No!! Idiot."

A 25 lb turkey is the size of two dogs, daughter.

"That's a huge f***ng bird."

"Planning a big dinner and a trip to the ER?"

It depends on if the turkey is pregnant...

This mum who fell for it.

This dad and mum who were just done.

And grandma, who offered to cook the turkey for her granddaughter. Bless.
