This Guy Will Be Your Horrible Thanksgiving Boyfriend

A weird guy offers his services to be a fake boyfriend at a Thanksgiving dinner. His price? Just one awesome meal.

One of the most anxiety-inducing parts about traveling home for Thanksgiving is all of the questions from friends and family about your life. They mean well, but there's only so many times you can explain your job or the reason for lack of a significant other. This enterprising young gentleman, however, has begun renting himself out to make those conversations easier to digest, by ruining them.

This Craigslist ad popped up in Nashville last week. This guy will give it his all to ruin Thanksgiving dinner at your request, and all just for the price of the meal (He really likes turkey.) What could you have going on in your living room if you hire him? He'll pretend to hit on other women, start combative political discourse or even just fight the family member of your choosing. It'll be a laugh riot!

Of course, this could backfire if you, say, actually care about your family having a good time while they eat. There's always that to consider.
