Something appears to have gone horribly wrong shortly after Green Bay's Ahman Green and Brett Favre were awarded their ceremonial turkey legs from Fox's John Madden on Thanksgiving Day.

Page 2 couldn't figure out why the Packers stars seemed a little confused, so we asked our readers for help, and you flooded our mailbag with more than 800 responses.

Here's a look at some of the best caption suggestions from our readers.
