It is indeed Armageddon days: venerable prankster-gift website Archie McPhee has run out of inflatable turkeys. Is the economy so bad this year that people are serving their Thanksgiving guests hot air instead of real juicy meat? Sad, sad.

Note on the Archie website says: “We've run out of Inflatable Turkeys for the season! This item will be back in stock in January 2010. Please check back then.” The turkeys cost $11.95. Or would have, anyway.

Better pick up your inflatable fruitcake before the holiday season is truly upon us.
