(BusinessWeek)   Ukraine plans to release alcoholic bears into local forest near kindly church-going villages. Hungover, D.T. shaking, withdrawal-grumpy bears. Oh yeah. This should end well   (businessweek.com) divider line 25

In the former Soviet Union, one of the myths about Americans is that they think there are bears prowling the streets of the former Soviet Union. In fact, most Americans probably never think about streets or bears in the former Soviet Union. They probably never think about the former Soviet Union at all.

The last part is more or less spot on; still, if I thought about bears prowling the streets of the Soviet Union, they would be drunk bears.

Huh, that's interesting. I remember having beers with a Russian guy at Stansted Airport several years ago. There's a lot of weird misconceptions about what went on in each other's countries.

For instance, I was brought up being told that people in the Soviet Union had to wait in line every day for government bread and cheese. He laughed at me when I said that, said no it was nothing like that. His mother went to the store and bought it just like everyone else does in the West.

He said he was brought up believing that Americans were all slaves to rich people and corporations and that American freedom is a myth. We both had a good laugh on that. Of course nowadays that's become more and more the case...

I wonder if they have a similar program for the local Kindly-Church-Going-Villagers...

Is it wrong that this headline gave me the first real belly laugh of the day? If so, I don't want to be right.

I worked with a Muscovite a few years ago. He was constantly trying to hook me up with a Russian bride. He made a pretty good case for the women of Russia, so eventually I asked him what it was that Russian women were looking for in a man that they couldn't find from Russian men. He said, "Sobriety".

I've heard the same. My ex-BIL brought over a Russian bride, actually. Last I heard it wasn't going well. They've got a kid.

Hello? VODAK BEARS! Where's the vodak mention in the headline subby?
 
2012-06-17 09:55:03 PM
Came for some beariot, leaving satisfied.

So they are sobering up the bears o they can go back into the forest and have the sex? No more beer goggles for BEARS.
In a serious note I am sad for the bears. At the same time I laughed a lot during this article.

"The bearkeepers counter that they treat their bears humanely. Plus, they say, the bears are a source of entertainment for patrons, especially children."

The children, they love them.
