Thanksgiving would be nothing without the food — turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. Accompanied by this food is the feeling of discomfort and fullness so profound that it's created a trope of people unbuttoning their pants after the meal. Fear not, America. There's now a pair of pants that eliminates that last important step. Under the Radar Host Callie Crossley joined Boston Public Radio today to talk about the Stove Top Thanksgiving Pants, a pair of pants with an elastic waistband. This is what tryptophan dreams are made of.
