    Drunk Bear - I didn't know we let bears join Cyburbia

    Quote Originally posted by Reuters
    SEATTLE, Washington (Reuters) -- A black bear was found passed out at a campground in Washington state recently after guzzling down three dozen cans of a local beer, a campground worker said on Wednesday.

    "We noticed a bear sleeping on the common lawn and wondered what was going on until we discovered that there were a lot of beer cans lying around," said Lisa Broxson, a worker at the Baker Lake Resort, 80 miles (129 kilometers) northeast of Seattle.

    The hard-drinking bear, estimated to be about two years old, broke into campers' coolers and, using his claws and teeth to open the cans, swilled down the suds...

    I sense the guiding hand of Budgie and the Tuna somewhere in this mess.

    I think Cyburbia has just found it's new official mascot.

    He must have liked the effect, he came back for more.

    I wonder if he had a hangover.

    I personally like the fact he went for the better beer. Definitely has cyburbanite possibilities.

    "They set a trap using as bait some doughnuts, honey and two cans of Rainier Beer. It worked, and the bear was captured for relocation."

    That is great, I wonder if it was the Beer or the doughnuts that attracted him.

    I think it might have been the unbeatable combo. Heck, had I been in the park at the time I probably would have ended up in that bear trap.

    Perfect and fitting choice ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    If I were the Manager of Rainier Beer I would see about getting that Bear to do commercials.

    Labat's has their Bear... but Rainier's would be real.

    Notwithstanding the fact this bear does not enjoy even a single post to his/her credit, I hereby nominate this bear for honorary membership in Teh Clube.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    I have personally only gotten two creatures drunk before (not including people). Both dogs.

    I plead the 5th on this bear thing. Sounds like ole' slew foot has been up to no good again.
