Significance of Mills' Book Title

The lecture today opened unexpectedly with a fake Final Exam having one question: write a two thousand word essay on the significance of John Mills' title Thank Your Mother For the Rabbits.
This is a plausible question for a real Final Exam, and the title has profound importance for a major theme of Mills' work. Indeed, it is fairly close to the surface of the text. Next Tuesday's lecture will deal directly with this topic, but you may want to consider it on your own between now and then -- in addition to continuing with your second reading of the Coupland text.
