We've been behind on all of our MasterChef Junior cuteness, which is a shame because sometimes we just need our weekly cry watching adorable kids going after their dreams. Yet this was an episode not to be missed, because Gordon Ramsay's mother came on as a guest judge. You have to admit -- so. many. questions.
So you want to host your own Thanksgiving party for your friends (you know, Friendsgiving) and think to yourself, "Hm, how do I feed many mouths with delicious food?" You don't usually think to yourself, "AHA! A turducken ... stuffed in a pig ... stuffed in an alligator ... and then just wrap that sh*t up in bacon."
In short: our hybrid-loving, overly creative minds looking for a viral hit have gone and just ruined Thanksgiving for us. We've already ruined pumpkin spice for everyone by sticking it in our lattes and every other food product, do we have to go ahead and throw Thanksgiving foods in the dumps of overly saturated seasonal foods?
Who cares if the Met Ball was across town last night? A few culinary celebrities knocked it out of the park sartorially speaking at the James Beard Awards, and were thrilled to see that a creative palate can sometimes translate into a creative palette.

We’ve selected a few of our favorite outfits below, and are attempting to crowdsource more with this plea: does anyone have a photo of Naomi Pomeroy or Rick Bayless? Our floor correspondent claimed that they killed it, but we can’t tell you exactly how best-dressed they are without photographic evidence.
