Be Thankful for Lawyers on this Thanksgiving Day

Not only did lawyers (well, only Abe Lincoln of the Illinois Bar) invent some important patents, but a lawyer invented that canned congealed cranberry sauce that you will eat today.  It's delicious, plus it is fun to try to get it out of the can.  So please do not bash the legal profession, today of all days.

Update:  Just told my mom that lawyers invented cranberry sauce, and she replied, "No wonder it's so sour."  Lawyer bashing, even at home.

Alan, Happy Thanksgiving to you and everybody else. I just thought I ought to point out that the cranberry sauce post, like a holiday fruit cake, is recycled from two years ago:

We are now officially in the Holiday Season! Be of good cheer!
