Watch "The 12 Days of Leftovers," This Year's Greatest Video About Gross Old Holiday Food

Christmas is over, but if you went to mom's for dinner, you probably were sent home with a Tupperware full of uneaten food.

Depending on who's cooking, there could be anything from ham to lasagna in that container and let's face it -- chances are you took the leftovers home to "be nice."

Then, in a few days, probably after drinking too much holiday cheer with friends, you'll take that mystery meal out of the fridge -- maybe finding it a little fuzzy...maybe covered in a protective coating of ice... or oil... or sludge.


In any event, leftovers can sometimes be rather ugly. Outback

Steakhouse made an awesome video called The 12 Days of Leftovers. It's what happens when good food goes bad... and congealed... and fuzzy... and spoiled.

Watch this awesome video. But be warned: You'll be singing it on the car ride home tonight.





And, since we all know the best part of a movie is the outtakes reel, here are some from the session.

Who knew Grandma's stuffing is so hip?



Who knew ham would forget his lines?
