Smarter Than the Average Bear

In today's weird news:

Remember the "Land Shark" Saturday Night Live skit? A knock is heard at the door, Lorraine Newman or whoever would ask, "Who is it?" and the mumbled reply, would come. "Candy gram; Pizza; and a variety of other ruses that might convince Lorraine to open the door.

A bear in Croatia is working the con, trick-or-treating his way through the streets in search of pic-a-nic baskets.


It's funny, because it's scary. And true.

Hannah-Barberily,

Do you remember the story last year about the bear in the Northeast somewhere who learned to puncture beer cans and drink? He drank over a case of beer, finishing all the Mt. Ranier and leaving most of the Busch. They found him dead drunk and relocated him. A long way from a convenience store, I hope...

I didn't hear about that. Oh god, those bears.
I read a great short story--a speculative fiction piece by Terry Bisson called "Bears Discover Fire." Sounds like firestarting among bears isn't such a stretch of the imagination any longer.
