Giving thanks...the day before we give thanks. Your twoppic of the day is Thanksgiving Eve. The Twitter-verse is alive with tweeps discussing plans for tomorrow, giving thanks a little early, and debating the best ways to cook a turkey.

19 years ago today, just 24 hours after publicly announcing he had AIDS, your top twoppic died... Queen frontman Freddie Mercury passed away on November 24, 1991. Mercury's partner, Jim Hutton, claims Mercury tested H-I-V positive in 1987, though Mercury denied and avoided rumors of his illness for 4 years. As the singer and songwriter for Queen, Mercury was the voice behind 18 No. 1 albums, 18 No. 1 singles, and over 300 million album sales. @leannejx tweets "RIP Freddie; Legends live forever."
