Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.

When we were on acid, we would go into the woods, because there was less chance that you would run into an authority figure. But we ran into a bear. My friend Duane was there, raising his right hand, swearing to help prevent forest fires. He told me, "Mitchell, Smokey is way more intense in person!"

In England Smoky the Bear is not the forest fire prevention representative. They have Smacky the Frog. It's just like a bear, but it's a frog. I think it's a better system, I think we should adopt it. Because bears can be mean, but frogs are always cool. Never has there been a frog hopping toward me, and I thought 'man, I'd better play dead. Here comes that frog...' You never say here comes that frog in a nervous manner. It's always optimistic. Hey here comes that frog, al-right. Maybe he'll come near me so I can pet him, and stick him in a mayonnaise jar, with a stick and a leaf, to recreate what he's used to. And I'm pretty sure I'd have to punch some holes in the lid, because he's damn sure used to air. Then I can observe him, and he won't be doing much in his 16 ounce world.

Only you.

Only WHO can prevent forest fires?

You pressed "you", meaning me. That is wrong. The correct answer is "me", meaning you.

Heh.

I never liked Smokey as a kid; compared to Yogi, we was just too damned serious!

THE!... It's "Smokey THE Bear", and nobody's gonna convince me it isn't.

jaytkay: I had this 45 RPM record as a kid and played it over and over and over...

Smokey the Bear - Peter Pan Records
He can find a fire before it starts to flame
That's why they call him Smokey 'cause he sure deserves the name

I think people in California do. They  preface everything with THE to make it sound more imoportant.

Unfortunately for Smokey, Ranger Rick has turned into a bit of a pyro lately:
