HIGHLIGHT: Inflatable animals
In New York, the striking writers have been using some oversized props to garner extra attention. Early in the week, they used a giant rat, but after some workers who were obligated to work objected to the negative connotations, they switched to an inflatable pig. Thanksgiving is in two weeks; perhaps the strikers can commandeer a giant inflatable SpongeBob after the parade?
