What Kind of a Disgraceful Excuse for a Blog Is This, Anyway?

Posts trailing off to once a week, lost comments, just what kind of a blog is this, anyway?

The Bear is quite sorry he has let things get slack lately, but, after all, he is a Bear. Laziness is considered a mark of character among bears, which is just as well, since one might as well make a virtue out of vice if you have no immortal soul, right?

But wait! Big news in the woodland! Pope Francis said that animals go to heaven.

Among those sending Tuffy to Hell, or at least oblivion, would be Pope Benedict and Fr. Mitch Pacwa from EWTN. (Bears have long memories.)

The Bear has to side with Pope Francis on this latest non-magisterial statement on the fate of animals.

So make that two posts this week, albeit at least one of them sort of lame.

  1. Animalae.... yes... I see...

    What about the other taxonomic classifications that are eligible for the beatific vision? I mean... surely Plants and Fungi that have led a good life should not be excluded from the New Jerusalem? Now, I can understand leaving protistae out! I mean, really, single cell life enjoying paradise? that is too ridiculous to even discuss. And monerans? They don't even have nuclei.

    1. What a d-bag. Your "micro" blog just got even more "micro"

    2. I am in I am not sure if this a Rokian joke I missed, but to clarify, that was my shorthand for the Pope's seeming predilection for pleasing whomever he is addressing, in this case a boy whose dog had died. It probably wanted a little more fleshing out. I thought your comment was quite amusing. This is indeed a microblog, if anything involving a Bear can be termed "micro." So I hope the explanation is sufficient to win your return.

  3. We're going to have to report you to the bloggers guild.

    1. Please, no. I think I'm already on probation.

    2. This could mean suspension of your license to blog. Wait for further notice.

      Does your resident troll require discipline too?

    3. Where is my troll when I need him, anyway?

      It wouldn't be the first time the Bear has been the target of mangel-wurzel used as light artillery. It reminds me of the great Jethro Tull song, Sealion: "You know after all the act is wearing thin, as the crowd grow uneasy and the boos begin, but you balance your world on the tip of your nose: you're a sealion with a ball at the carnival."

    4. Reviewing your files now...not looking good....If you were going all "Mark Shea" about torture, you know, it might help with some powers that be.

  4. I thought animals went to the Rainbow Bridge.

    No fair.

    1. Wait...silly me, it's the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven. (Duh.)

    2. Wotan goes to the Rainbow Bridge if he can get past the storm Giants. Or the chorus line, I forget.

  5. In additional (though less reliable) news, the Eye of the Tiber reports that Pope Francis says some animals will not go to heaven. Good thing you're not a panda bear.

    1. Well, I can certainly understand Panda Bears. We are dog lovers, but have a very nice pussy cat who doesn't seem the Hell bound type. There was all that idol worship in Egypt, but was that Briar's fault? Unless cats are Jehovah's Witnesses, which would, of course, explain everything. (Like who's been leaving Watchtower magazines on the front mat.)

  6. We all know how Internet communication is subject to misinterpretation, but, please, remember this is your old friend the Bear, who, even in the depths of a distemper, would not be cutting to a guest. If something seems odd, it's probably just the Bear typing something that crossed his mind.

    Oh, bother, this really is a poor excuse for a blog this week! Now I've lost a quarter of my readership!

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts, and no links to videos. Have a great day!
