Smiley Face Oyster Will Be Family's Guest Of Honor At Their Thanksgiving Meal

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Massachusetts family said they decided to spare the life of an oyster they found with shapes on its shell arranged to resemble a human face."


Eva Carbonaro was searching for Thanksgiving oysters when she came across the unique oyster. Who the heck goes searching for oysters for the Thanksgiving meal? I`m surprised Eva didn`t find an oyster with markings that look like "666."


Eva has been keeping the oyster in a bowl of water in the fridge, and she plans on making him the guest of honor for the Thanksgiving meal.

I`ve heard of pardoning a turkey for Thanksgiving, but this is simply ridiculous. If I found an oyster that looks like a smiley face, he wouldn`t be my guest of honor for Thanksgiving, I would put it up for sale on eBay.

I hope that all my readers will enjoy their Turkey (and oysters) this Thanksgiving.
