Ahh, Thanksgiving. Turkey, pumpkin pie, stuffing, rampant consumerism...

Thanksgiving as we know it is only celebrated in America, but many other countries have their own unique celebrations which are all meant to give thanks and celebrate the end of the season's harvest. Presumably, they all copied America because they thought our idea was so cool. Here are a few of the more famous festivals.

Canada just out Murica'd the United States.

Ontario burger chain The Works has unveiled a hamburger that is stuffed and topped with Reese's peanut butter cups.

Cue the mouth watering.

The Frankenstein burger is part of the restaurant's "Get Stuff'd" campaign, and is described as:

"Stuff'd with Reese Peanut Butter Cups candy right inside our juicy beef patty and topped with crispy onion strings, two strips of smoked bacon and even more Reese Peanut Butter Cups candy!"

Diabeetus doesn't count during Halloween, right?

It was an actual tall midget.

That's who arrested actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi in Canada today. We don't know what they did, but it couldn't be any worse than their previous sexcapades.

Evi did what any sane person would do after the incident—blame Canada.

The couple posted this bizarre video right before the arrest where they talk about Hillary Clinton's email scandal, toast to their wedding anniversary and complain about Canada some more.

Wow, Quaids. Just wow.

Man breaks into ranch, writes in t

This right here is great.

Thirty three-year-old Christopher Hiscock seems like a pretty normal guy according to the National Post.

Except of course for the fact that he stole a truck to drive west, broke into a ranch and spent the day living comfortably in its confines before the resident came home and found Hiscock.

"She found the accused in her home watching TV," Crown lawyer Mike Wong said.

"He had started a fire in the fireplace and prepared himself a meal. He said he had been driving by and the door was open, so he came in.

..."The accused appears to have done some laundry. He also fed the cats and put out some hay for the horses," Wong said. "He used (the residents') toothbrush and shaver, he had taken some meat out of the freezer to thaw and he had written in their diary."

Yes. That's right. He even found the residents' diary and wrote in it.

In beautiful proof that the law can sometimes work for the people, the court released his one diary entry.

"Today was my first full day at the ranch," he wrote in the diary. "I fed the cats and horses. So much I can do here I have to remind myself to just relax and take my time.

"I don't feel alone here, I guess with 2 cats and 3 horses it's kinda hard to be alone. Last night I had a fire in the house. It was so (peaceful). I slept like a little baby.

I saw a picture in the basement on the wall of a man holding and weighing fish on a boat. Looking at him I realized we look a lot alike, but I think I'm more handsome."

They did not release either a picture of Hiscock or a the picture of the man weighing the fish, so we cannot confirm or deny whether Hiscock is more handsome. Although that question will keep us awake at night.

The story has a kind of happy ending, since he was only given probation by the judge.

Hiscock, who has no prior criminal record, apologized in court.

"I made a lot of mistakes," he said. "There's really no excuses for it."

He was still beaming about his brief stay at the ranch.

"Beautiful ranch," he said. "Gorgeous. I was driving and I just turned in. Beautiful place."

Judge Chris Cleaveley placed Hiscock on a one-year probation term with orders barring him from contacting the residents of the ranch and the owner of the Ontario truck.

But his future prospects look less than ideal.

"I really have nowhere to go," he said... "The woods is a good place, I suppose. There's a lot of fish out there."

Never stop dreaming, folks.
