HOPEFULLY the Duggar family wasn’t Counting On having a juicy turkey this Thanksgiving.
The reality show clan shared photos of their dinner, and Reddit users stuffed the comment section with jokes about the dry looking bird.

The first post summed it up best: “This is one dry ass looking turkey (the bird not Justin).”
Others followed with comment like: “That turkey looks like it’s begging for a glass of water,” and “Poor thing crawled down several miles of Mojave highway.”
The family shared photos on Instagram of everyone pitching in a day earlier to help make dinner, along with a special note of thanks:
“Today it was all hands on deck preparing for our Thanksgiving meal! We have some staples that we make every year, like our favorite homemade rolls!
Can’t wait to try everything tomorrow with friends and family! Happy Thanksgiving!”
While fans had their fun with the turkey, many are still fuming over the photo of a smiling Jackson kneeling on top of a deer he shot and killed.
In the Instagram photo, the 17-year-old smiles as he lifts the dead animal’s head up by it’s antlers as his rifle laid over the buck’s body.
The image was captioned: “Jackson got a nice buck on Saturday, the opening day of gun season here in Arkansas!
“We’ve already enjoyed some of the meat from his harvest! Deer jerky is one of our favorites to make.
“Jackson is a good shot, and becoming a great cook, too!”
But fans cried foul over the fatal shot, with many disapproving in the comments section, sharing varying lengths of “No’s”
One follower exclaimed: “Y’all need to take a minute off social media .. feel the room!”
While another responded: “Sorry no congratulations from me.”
A third simply noted the photo was: “Graphic and cruel.”
This holiday feast is especially somber for the family, as it comes juts days before their brother Josh’s trial date.
Eldest Duggar sibling, Josh, 33, is currently on home confinement until his trial on November 30, and is unable to spend the holidays with his underage siblings, nieces and nephews amid his child pornography charges.
The troubled son won’t even be at the family’s dinner table, as he is currently living with third party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of the family as he awaits his upcoming trial.
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES
Back in April, Josh pleaded not guilty to two child pornography counts.
He was accused of possessing and receiving images of child pornography.
Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner said at a May court hearing that downloads made from a specific file were “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine”.
Josh’s trial could last until December 3.
The Sun exclusively revealed from court papers that the state plans to use his past molestation scandal, which he was never charged for, at the trial and is asking the court for permission.
In 2015, a police report was published that revealed his dad Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of five young girls while they were asleep in the family home back in 2006.
The state plans to use the police report at trial, as it shows his alleged “sexual interest in young girls.”
Josh fought back against prosecution being able to mention the molestation scandal, as a judge will rule on the argument next week.
Recently, at a hearing in federal court, the prosecution mentioned Josh’s father would be one of their proposed witnesses.
