Suffering A Mad Case Of Pantal-Distension

As most of us in Canada are probably struggling within the confines of our pants, what with the bulk of us having just finished Thanksgiving dinner (or leftovers from last night as is the case with me), I thought it was time to reflect on that for which I am thankful. Of course, family and…
