Which bear is best?


A friend suggested grizzly, but I couldn't get it through the door.
Any ideas?

Are you going to make him a pet or have him eat the wife?

I thought Paddington was a native of the UK somewhere!?

I'm with jeebizz anyways; pandas are nice. They're popular with the ladies, and are a good excuse to have lots of nice bamboo around the house

Paddington came from Peru and is living in London. He had a sign which said "Please look after this bear" and was found at Paddington Station. And all that was from memory. I still got it!

And I dunno - would you rather have a bear in front of you or a bear behind?

You are a sick man. No, I basically need a replacement for the trout. Now we got the grizzly through the window, but he ate the trout and claimed the bedroom for himself. A complete disaster. I have to sleep on the couch.
- Will definitely look into Koalas!

Gee, thanks . . .

However, I'm a little biased here.

Polar bears who use Slackware are probably OK.

Yeah but the poor polar bears are all dying out.

Borat reccomends a black bear or a grizzly bear to keep jew, gypsie, and monsters fail, yes? Is nice, nice.

Put salmon in your pockets and have a seat. The grizzly should be in the door shortly.
