An important message from Parade magazine:
After the big feast, the countdown to repurpose leftovers into soups, sandwiches, and various turkey 2.0 dinners begins. But how long can you safely keep leftovers to enjoy after Thanksgiving day?
First, within two hours after dinner has been served, make sure to pack up leftovers right away and store in the refrigerator. For every 20 minutes over two hours your food sits at room temperature, the level of bacteria doubles in quantity, so don’t procrastinate!
Leftovers can safely keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator, or 3 to 4 months in the freezer.
Thanksgiving was four days ago, which means that you should be safe eating refrigerated leftovers for one more day...assuming you were as timely as you should have been about getting everything into the fridge, of course.
And you were...weren't you?
Here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets of the past week:

lol @ everybody urging Sens fans to not boo Alfredsson. Those 12000 fans paid their $18 to get into the game, they can do whatever they want— Anthrax Jones (@AnthraxJones) December 1, 2013
How the hell do the Senators have attendance issues? I mean I know Ottawa isn't like a big or important city or anything but still, it's in Canada right? What the hell else are people spending their money on?
According to Dreger, Robidas had a rod placed in his fibia. The fibia interestingly enough is not a bone that actually exists. #confirmed— Jo Innes (@JoNana) November 30, 2013
You mean Dreger was wrong about something?!

@boring_as_heck is a twitter superstar, and he's also a hockey fan. He doesn't tweet about hockey nearly enough, but when he does it's pure gold.
Remember, if you see a funny hockey tweet during the week and think it deserves a place in the top five, send it to me @MegalodonBOC .
Was @TheNHLHumor funny this week?
