  1. Great stuff, Bear. No Androcles and the Lion lore for Bears! Except maybe Smokey.

  2. By the way, Bear, there were always two truisms that were considered radically self-evident.

    The first was "Is the Pope Catholic?" and the second was "Do bears (yatta yatta) in the woods?"

    Since the former truism is not remotely self-evident any more, would you care to confirm or deny the indisputability of the latter?

    1. The Bear understands that these are difficult times, when people crave the certainty of ancient truths. But such questions can wait until we solve world poverty and save the planet.

    2. I understand you prefer to deflect the question, Bear. Quite understandable. However when the joint UN- World Theological Commission of Inquiry on Animal Methane Emissions commences so as to determine if it shall be cows or perhaps say bears who must be culled in order to save the planet you may rue the day when this softball question was tossed to you and you bunted.

    3. I was just following the lead of the Holy Father when asked about condoms on his trip to Africa. It seemed to work for him.

    4. I agree with Bear. He shouldn't answer until there is justice. Somewhere.

  3. Mr. Bear, I think you should take this great idea one step further. You could make some bear rebuttle videos to counter the monthly papal propaganda videos. I can visualize the bear in the lead role, with the woodland creatures in supporting roles, expressing the real world of life in the forest. Now that's a video I could watch without cringing!

    1. That's a great idea, but, unlike Michael Voris, I don't have a sponsor who will build me a television studio. And anyway, the Bear has a perfect face for radio, as he has been told. One of my sons has suggested that I start a podcast. It would be fun to do an audio response with production music. The title could be "Good Intentions," which works on more than one level.

    2. Bear you could co-opt the Beach Boys "Good Vibrations" as your theme song! I volunteer to sing it for you, but as much as I like singing no one has ever told me I have a good voice.

    3. I'm full of those good intentions.
      I've got so many inventions.
      Fundamentalists have contentions,
      But I'm lovin' my own intentions.

      Oooo, oooo, oooo, good intentions.
      Heaven's paved with good intentions.

  4. I watched 'Backcountry' the other day and hoped that wasn't a cameo from THE Bear...although there was something very close to jawbone ripping...now I'm worried.

    1. It is wise to be always worried around Bears, although less so for your humble correspondent. For what it's worth:

    2. Just watched 'The Revenant' and am pretty sure Leonardo DiCaprio could have benefitted from that list. (Although he did follow it pretty well, as I checked through it mentally whilst in the theater). :-)
