We all know about "The Twelve Days
of Christmas," but what about "The 12 Days of Rickmas"? Ricky Gervais
is doing his own take on the classic carol on Twitter. On the first day of
Rickmas, you should give your true love your signature on a petition to ban the tiger-skin

recommend next? A ban on
foie gras? A donation to an animal rights group? The suspense is like … waiting for Christmas.
