Good spot! Apparently bear paws look like people feet and Farkers can't resist a bad cop no doughnut joke.

When I was stationed at Ft. Bliss about 20 years ago a local fast food joint found what they said was a "human claw" in the bathroom. When my wife and I heard that we started laughing out loud. Human claw? After further investigation it turned out to be a bear claw. We still will bring up the "human claw" to this day. So stupid.

LOL, thanks chimp_ninja. I hope I don't find one of those in the fast-food joint's restroom.

They would have recognized it, but all the bakery had was this box of one dozen starved, crazed weasels.

I know how you feel. Last Friday was donut day at work. I grabbed what I thought was a cherry filled donut, it turned out to be raspberry... I hate raspberry. I was pretty bummed too...

Okay, that made me giggle. Sad that it's a repeated joke, but hey.

When they found my friends thumb 2 weeks after 9/11 at ground 0, I did not take it stride. I knew I not only lost a friend, but also a digit.

comeon guys this deserves more than 37 posts.

It was a good "old fashioned" joke with a clever "twist" that almost made me drop a "chocolate log."

Well played subby. Well played.

Well, they do look remarkably similar:

winnie.the.apu: "Deputies took it to the Monroe County Medical Examiner's office, which determined through DNA tests that it wasn't human and was most likely from a black bear"

Funny, Subby.

Reminds me of one of my favorite SNL bits-

Jimmy Fallon: Officials at a zoo in Bangladesh said the zookeeper was killed by two black bears, in an attempt to-

Tina Fey: Wait, wait, wait! Why did you have to say they're black bears? How is the color of their fur relevent?

Jimmy Fallon: Well, but they were black bears.

Tina Fey: Oh. But if they were polar bears, you wouldn't say two white bears attacked someone. You're prejudice, Jimmy! You're-you're a specist!

Jimmy Fallon: Specist? Really?

Tina Fey: Yeah.

Jimmy Fallon: Well, I'm gonna make a fool out of you - maybe. 'Cause I travel around with something. I don't know, maybe you want to see this? [ takes out picture frame ] My wife is a black bear! [ reveals the picture of himself with the black bear ] So, now, who's the idiot - you or me, the guy who married a black bear? [ silence from Tina ] I thought so!

Wonder who discovered the Grizzly evidence. The perpetrator maybe bi-polar.

HAHAHA! That is SOOO FUNNNY!!1

They can't tell the difference between a bear claw and a human foot! OMFG! I'm laughing so hard I think I may piss myself! OMFG I've never heard anything so funny in my entire life! You can't make stuff like this up I'm tellin' ya!

OMFG! I just got the part about cops and bearclaw donuts!! That makes it double funny! Because cops like donuts they should know the difference between a donut and a foot! OMFG!! I'm LMAO! In fact it's so gawddam funny I'm even going to add a LAUGH OL in this post! If I had a job, I know I'd be LAUGH OLing at the water cooler about this one with all my beloved co-workers over this one, that's for sure! But not so loud that it disturbs the other workers. We'd just drink our water and laugh and laugh!

Deer hunting with my father one year we passed a campsite that had two bear carcasses being dressed out. Skinned and beheaded a bear carcass looks a lot like a fat naked guy with his head cut off.

You know it's not a dead person, but for just a second you get a real "The Hills Have Eyes" vibe.
