Traditionally, this is the day all Americans pause to give thanks. Thanks that those thrice-damned PajamaGram and Vermont Teddy Bear advertisements which have been on the TV wall-to-wall for a month, are gone for another year. Well, the bears, anyway. The Pajama ladies will be back for Christmas.
I see that the Vermont Teddy Bear site lists bears for 'Religious Occasions'. I had hoped to find suicide bomber bears or Fred Phelps bears who hate everything and everybody, or bears suitable for burying alive in the king's tomb, to eternally serve the king in the afterlife, unable to escape a slave's chains even in death... but, sadly, no. Just a few Chanukah bears. Rats.
