5 Stories You Might Have Missed Over Thanksgiving
We hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving, with minimal travel headaches, plenty of time spent with friends and family, and even more time sleeping off unholy amounts of turkey and stuffing.
We also hope you had some time to really step away from work and all things promotional products for a few minutes. We sure did. (Heck, I was on another continent for a lot of it.) But, now that we're back in the swing of things, it's our job—nay, obligation—to gently remind you of all of the things you may have missed while you were gone.
So, with Thanksgiving festivities behind us, let's recap a few of the biggest stories from this past week or so.
South Dakota launched a campaign to combat drug use in the state, but chose an interesting slogan for it. "Meth. We're On It." It certainly got attention beyond the South Dakota borders, and now we're seeing plenty of merchandise to support it. Which, I mean, is good.

Sometimes we all need to blow off a little steam, right? We're not usually rewarded for it, though. But, this Angry Birds "Venting Machine" gives prizes in exchange for punches, shakes or shouts.
