The patent collection is an underused resource for solutions, and yes, it contains a solution to the biggest problem of the day: back in 1980, Lucy Barmby invented a solution to overeating on Thanksgiving (and every other day).
Lucy Barmby’s U.S. Patent No. 4,344,424 on an Anti-Eating Face Mask.
Lucy may have solved the problem of turkey and pecan pie, but it looks as if gravy is still a threat. Beware, and have a happy holiday with family and friends.
