Something's not quite right in the land of Martha. Something in this scene from her Thanksgiving Special tonight on Cooking Channel is surely not to her liking. Submit your best idea for a caption and earn the fame and glory of thousands!  **WINNER ANNOUNCED AFTER THE JUMP**

*****UPDATE - 11.19.10: We've got a winner! The competition was BRUTAL on this one. You are all pretty damned funny. However, one entrant just caught our eye and seemed to be channeling the true spirit of Martha. In fact, it scared us just a little. Don't worry -- it was a good thing.

HUGE CONGRATS to RedRoundOrGreen for the immortal words:

"Well. This is not so pre-tty, is it? No. What you might do, in this circumstance, is to abandon the tableside carving and simply immerse the sliced turkey in your homemade lavender-juniper gravy reduction. Soooo simple and very elegant. Also, I have a lovely centerpiece idea that will magically transform any burnt carcass into a floral paradise using seasonal gourds and exotic Moroccan hydrangeas."

And never forget, as Martha Stewart once said...

"I invented 'It's a good thing' before you were even born."
Looking forward to the next Caption It. *****
The rules:
1) Post all captions in Comments below.

2) We love funny, witty, clever.  Keep it clean, or Martha will be coming to pay you a visit.

3) Next Friday, Nov. 19 we'll pick our favorite.

4) The winning caption will be featured in this post — Martha bragging rights and all.
