I don't think you love teddies too much if'n you're tossin' 'em off 'da roofs.

This is good. I know it's hard to get a nice cold beverage sometimes. I hope the people on the ground appreciate it.

I wonder if anyone will fashion a parachute out of a red lace teddy?

Congrats. I was trying to work a red lace teddy in here, just couldn't find a way :)

Read the article and was disappointed..... Thought they were pushing real bears out a plane with parachutes strapped to them...

Let the bears pay the bear tax!
I pay the Skarekroe tax!

Shame the Yankees don't have one.

"Daddy, how do they get bears to ride bicycles?"
"They nail its feet to the peddles and chase it with a stick"
 
2005-08-11 11:35:44 AM  
For some reason, I thought of that crappy Disney movie where a dog plays sports. It's quite cruel, actually.

MAN! I'm all disappointed. I wanted real bears parachuting out of planes! Like when they used to go into the woods by themselves and dance in big bear circles, I thought they had, as a group, advanced to more Xtreme forms of bear entertainment. Geez!

are these people retarded?

This will be like NASCAR. People will watch only to see things go horribly wrong.

BTW, what the heck is with the poll on the right side?

Opinion: Do you support the opening of the first lap dancing club in Gloucester?

Is a "lap dancing club" different than a strip club? Do the women lap-dance with all their clothes on? (I am obviously on a subject where I am completely ignorant.)

This Sunday's unusual stunt is the brainchild of churchwarden Mathew Page

Brainchild? Didn't the military just do this last month in Iraq...

/and didn't the Russians do it in Afghanistan
//but with bears that go boom

Donald, I believe
"fetchez les nounours!"
would be more appropriate, mais on a encore des vaches!
 
2005-08-11 11:48:08 AM  
I swear, with God as my witness, I thought teddy bears could fly.

You guys should read Clancy's non-fiction book about the special forces. The green berets threw a dog and a gator out of a plane with parachutes. The funny thing is, the gator got away, and was found in a pond at fort Brag years later.

Bears made to parachute

From a helium balloon?

Did they let them take off their armour first?

/Shouldn't be obscure

Why did they threw them out? I know it's fiction, but that sort of doesn't make sense?
 
2005-08-11 12:01:02 PM  
I was totally thinking something else until they said "teddy"

BearToy knows what I mean
 
2005-08-11 12:04:25 PM  
Parachuting bears?
Sounds like a Bob The Angry Flower comic to me!
 
2005-08-11 12:05:16 PM  
This reminds me of a better story about a guy who drops teddy bears from his helicopter in Iraq for the kids. I farking hate war and think it's a dumbass thing to start, but at least there are good people there.
 
2005-08-11 12:05:39 PM  
And on a side note, Brap, "Bear Tosser" sounds like a good friend for BearToy.
 
2005-08-11 12:07:37 PM  
You see, this is why I don't look at the photoshop contest right when there posted. This way I have something to do when the admins are take a nap.
 
2005-08-11 12:08:01 PM  
Next article about Gloucester better have something about a kitty cat tea party or I'll be disappointed.
 
2005-08-11 12:08:02 PM  
Coincidence?

GIS for "parachute bear":



Sooooo cute.

Imagine the results if I did a GIS for "bear" and "harness" with SafeSearch off....

2005-08-11 12:15:25 PM  
Is it me or does it look like that guy took a pair of underwear and made a parachute out of it?

Did anyone see the commercial for those places where you can pick your own bear or other animal and stuff them yourself and customize them? That was the freaking funniest commcerial... I can't believe there is actually more than one store. I wonder how long they will stay in business?
 
2005-08-11 12:17:19 PM  

who is driving? Bear is driving! How can this be?

Actually, it wasn't fiction. It was a book he wrote with a former special forces general about the history of the real special forces. They threw them out because they were the mascots of the unit, and as members of the unit, they had to be jump qualified. At least that was the excuse they used. I think they were just nuts.

Should have a "sappy" tag...


/just sayin'
 
2005-08-11 12:21:26 PM  
Meh...How the heck can I start a flame war over this subject? Hmmm....perhaps there are some moranic PETA farkers who feel that Teddy Bears are being exploited and tormented for our collective amusement?????

TPerrin, Thats one of my favorite jokes/lines in the series. Glad to know someone else has seen that show.

"Yep"

Is it sad that I first clicked on the comments and did a search to see if anyone said "useless without pics" before I RTFA and then when I did, I found the pic to be a stuffed bear, and was devastated.
