Which is what this viral prank is doing. It's frustrating parents across the country. It's #25poundturkeychallenge. It's encouraging kids to text their parents a simple question. Mom, dad, how long do I have to cook a 25-pound Turkey in the microwave? This was sent to mom and dad. Here are their responses. Mom said to call. Dad guesses it will take a week. I like that dad takes the question seriously. This person who is also named Michael, it is not me. They got a brutal response. I don't know, Michael. How long does it take for you to stop being a huge disappointment? I mean, sounds like it's a little deeper than just a Turkey. We even texted our parents. What did your mom say? Your mom was cute.

That looks better microwaved than I thought it would look. It said it has to be 160, right? How deep do you go? I trust it's 160 degrees. I'm going to cut the Turkey. I like a leg. I was going to do the breast. I would like a leg. I'm a leg girl. Yeah. I want to do it at the same time. Before we do this, I must say this Turkey is moist. It smells good. Cheers. I made them pinky swear -- That's good Turkey. That is very good Turkey. My parents are wrong. You can do this in the microwave. This is going to change my Thanksgiving. This is really good.
