Forgive my attempt at humor with regard to the 'too many words' line which I would have hoped would be taken unseriously.
Perhaps it was because the words were quite in your face
as opposed to the "normal" Firesign stuff that can get so obscure as to mean nothing, or so they might have us think. Perhaps it rang with a little too much truth as to the hypocrisy with which we as Americans regard the idea of Thanksgiving. Perhaps Phil Austin is just a commie. Maybe they are all commies. Maybe they are the most important type of Americans we can have, bigger than, dare I say L'il Georgie W. I'm sure it just wasn't politically correct use of the airwaves on such a sacred and cherished holiday. Maybe it's none of the above. Sorry I've gotten all soapy on you. I'll clean up after the pageant is over.
