Stovetop Made Thanksgiving Stretchy Pants

Because nothing should come between you and your second (or fourth) helping!

Some people will try to convince you Thanksgiving is about family and friendship. I’m sorry to tell you this, but Thanksgiving is actually about food, and cramming your face with so many sides and pies that you won’t be able to move until Christmas.

However, the inevitable lateral expansion of your gut will result in collateral damage to your pants. In a perfect world, we could just shovel food into our mouths while wearing nothing but a Snuggie that we could burn later, but the odds are good that you are dining with family members who would prefer you wear pants.

As one of the biggest makers of stuffing, Stovetop apparently felt some residual guilt about the predicament eaters face because the company is apparently offering up a solution this year: Behold, Stovetop’s Thanksgiving dinner pants! They are basically maternity pants with stuffing on them, and yet they are genius:

Watching that video, it is not hard to see how you could find yourself in the very same situation. Minus the part where the woman tries to stick spoons in her pants. That’s a new one for me.

The only real mystery is what took a company so long to come up with this genius idea. After all, Joey from “Friends” was on this trend years ago.

Unfortunately, the idea might have been too good. While Stovetop said the offer was going to extend until the end of the month, they are already sold out. Stovetop did at least also make a $10,000 donation to Feed America, so it’s hard to be too mad at them.

The company hasn’t said anything about making more pants, but maybe the high demand will make them reconsider. Until then, you might want to check out “swoveralls,” which are overalls made of sweatpants.

The other option, of course, is to not eat until your pants explode. Haha, I know, that was funny, right? Who are we kidding here? Pass the stuffing, please.
