Squee!  :)
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

(Sorry if this is taking the joke too far -- I mean it sincerely. Bear with me.)

Oh! That like the staritsa we could bear witness to how our venerable and God-bearing father Seraphim of Sarov fed the bear with his arm without the bear feeding on him. Let us bear sorrows, persecutions and slander with gratitude, and raise our bear-strong arms to Heaven, and let the Holy Spirit bear down on us as it did bear down on him.

It's shopped with, I think, an image of Putin that appears in other shops, where he is made to do this and that.  :angel:

Yeah, it's shopped. The water is too shallow for Putin to be swimming like that.

Clearly it is shopped. If it was real life, Putin would be chasing the bear who would be frantically trying to swim away from him.

Let us also remember, in these trouble times, the ongoing struggle of women in the U.S. Congress to maintain their right to bare arms. That certain politicians would so brazenly fight against a right enshrined in the Constitution is outrageous.

What if your bear hands are metal, though?

Sure  8)  The joke was initially inspired by this giant bear-inspired machine in Horizon Zero Dawn:



...and then someone was joking that for beating the boss bear you should get bear claws as a weapon; I was thinking maybe something along the lines of the 'claws' in DQ3:



...except rather than that they'd be the metal claws of the bear; so you'd be fighting literally bear-handed

"Hug me!"

From 1976 to 1982, Alaska had a license plate like that.



They discontinued the design because people thought the bear looked like a gopher (and possibly because somebody complained that it looked like the bear had an erection).


They introduced a redsign a couple of years ago and actually won some awards for it.

Come on now, it's only $325 to get a PS4 + the game. Compared to going to a pro sporting event with your family or buying Star Trek TNG DVDs c. 2006 that's a complete steal!

Eesh, tell me about it! We bought all of TNG on DVD back then. It took a couple of years. Nothing like shelling out a combined 700 bucks for a sermon about moneyless utopian space Communism.

We don't have that kind of money now. If we did, I'd buy a Switch first anyway.
