27. Yup, Been There - An Idea
Getting into a lengthy argument with your relatives would ruin your enjoyment of the meal, but you don't have to just sit there and take it. My suggestion - think of the most controversial thing you might say to them and then create a small sign with it on a piece of paper. When your asshat relative begins to rant take the paper out of your pocket and pin it to your shirt in front. Then point to it. Each time they say something absurd, point to it again. No words are needed.

Eg. - your political idea is bat-shit crazy - Tax the Rich, Feed the Poor - We're coming to take your guns after Obama is reelected - I am the 99% - etc.
