The Brief: Kids have been asking their parents "how long do I microwave a 25-pound turkey?" in a viral Thanksgiving prank turned meme.


After asking their parents this absurd, and potentially upsetting question, many kids and young adults have posted their responses on social media. Beware that if you receive such a ludicrous text, it is likely for the sake of the viral #TurkeyChallenge, and your child may even be baiting you for a response to post online.

This prank seems to be in good humor and many parent responses are appropriately clever, horrified, and hilarious.
