    When I talked to my grandma today she said she was cooking her turkey in the oven at 500, once I FINALLY quit laughing I had to explain to her what was so funny. Her turkey came out unscathed.

    Since OT opened, I had to bump this classic thread back up because the OP is not alone!

    From our friends at www.notalwaysrelated.com

    Playing Chicken With The Oven

    (My stepmom is in the kitchen preparing dinner.)

    Stepmom: “Wait! No! Stop! Undo! Undo! Cancel! Stop! NOOO!” *she starts yelling for my dad* “Honey, you have to come help me right now! The chicken is going to catch on fire! Help!”

    (By now the whole family is in the kitchen to see what’s going on. My stepmom is frantically mashing buttons on the range and pulling at the oven door, which appears to be locked.)

    Dad:
    “What happened?”

    Stepmom:
    “I put the chicken in the oven and pressed the ‘Self Clean’ button instead of ‘Timer’! The oven locked and it’s going to heat up to 900 degrees and the chicken is going to catch on fire! You have to rescue our chicken!”

    (The house was brand new and the circuit breaker box was poorly labelled. My dad ended up having to cut off the power to the whole house to find the right breaker to reset the oven!)

    I have to clean my oven. I have been trying to get up the nerve to do so for a month. Every time I get ready to try, I remember this thread and "chicken" out.

    I am now glad I bought a cheap oven which will never lock and hold my chicken hostage.

    I've been hungry for a really good thread, lately - seems to be a dearth of them.

    This one turned into such a classic thread. That poor chicken was just the start!

    I've shared this story several times and it's always good for a laugh.

    We bought and dressed the turkey this year and then delivered it to my BIL's house to go on the oven. My niece just texted me, "do I need to flip the bird?"

    No, I said, you don't NEED to flip the bird...

    A helmet saved my life.
