I wanna be a Bear

If you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that. Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too.

If you're a bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.

If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that.

Heard that mamma bears only have to raise the cubs for two years and then kicks them out on their own. Bears seem to have a lot going for them, can't think of a true unarmed predator, except for maybe a bigger and meaner other bear.

The downside is that they only have sex every two years. The upside is the sex goes on for a couple of days.

You know that now they've tortured the smokers into submission, they are going after the "overweight", right? ? ? Bears have got to be at the top of their list. No doubt about it.

Granny, Did you know that Bear fat floats? Yep, if you want to make an ivory type soap that floats use Bear fat.

Don, Around here the Bear seem to do much better than the humans. They manage to have the humans trained to dump truck loads of candy and generally they get away without being shot. We have a lot of Bear too!
