Most kids adore animals. So it was no surprise that these two little boys were all excited about turkeys at Thanksgiving.
They just sadly had no idea exactly what was going to happen to the turkeys they were celebrating.
Their dad, Reddit user ryancav, posted an adorable photo of his two boys looking overjoyed to be celebrating the Thanksgiving turkeys.
While one brother held a soft toy turkey close to his heart, the other held up his book, The Thankful Turkey.
The smiles on their face were so innocent that it was soul-destroying to see that innocence shattered when it came to the Thanksgiving dinner.
Below the sweet turkey photo, the dad posted another photo which showed a totally different scene: the horrified look on the boys’ faces when they opened the oven to see a murdered, plucked turkey cooking away.
It truly was a Thanksgiving nightmare.
The photos were posted to Reddit, where of course, the reaction to the photos weren’t so sympathetic – in fact, most users found the pictures hilarious.
One joked: ‘Ahhh, yes. Traumatising the children. It’s the small joys in life.’
Another quipped: ‘The parents just made 2 vegans’.
Make that three.
