"Nothing like going to the Cincinnati Zoo and being on lock down due to a polar bear on the loose!"

"No animals or people were harmed."

Shouldn't that be "No people or animals were harmed"?

No doubt some effect of the Republican primary.
Polar bears, like cats, being Republican.

I would think No animals were harmed would cover it, since people are animals, if not particularly civilized ones.

Bi-Polar Personality lock down alert. Has Trump escaped?

Just wait for Climate Change to kill all the polar bears.

True story- my sisters' family fell into the shark tank at the New Orleans aquarium when the catwalk broke. Fortunately the animals were well fed and not terribly interested, but my sister had a brief moment of panic when a guy who couldn't swim latched onto her leg.

Polar bears think monkeys are "good eatin'."

"We're hiding in the monkey house."

Aren't we all?

Shortened from Beritzeskiewicz.

I concur with Ipso. Curious George for Trump's VP!

You're going to hide from a polar bear where, exactly? In a bank safe?

Because you're talkin' about a critter who can pull open a locked car door (well, there aren't a lot of cars in the Artic, but grizzlies can do this, & polar bears are bigger than grizzlies). If a polar bear really wants to eat you, it's going to take quite a bit between it & you to stop it.

But, this guys probably so well fed, he just has the Spring-time Wanderlust.

Doesn't Berit Bear host FNC's special report?

The bears are so cute when they're in a picture. less so when they are roaming around freely.

I think the other animals were likely more alarmed than the people.

"Mmm, meerkat snacks. ... Oh! Crunchy flamingos! Don't mind if I do... Ah, grassland animals--the main course!"

I saw a show on one of the animal networks where they filmed a fight between a polar and a grizzly.

The grizzly whupped the polar, setting him to running. Surprised me.

I guess it doesn't mean every grizzly can whup every polar.

The zoo just opened its "Let's take a closer look at those monkey butts" exhibit.

It's not a bug, it's feature!

Strike out "Cincinnati Zoo", insert "Republican Convention"....Has there ever been a better tag line?

I've got a .454 Toklat if they want to borrow it.

It is a creative, and possibly useful idea - let loose a dozen or two polar bears in the Republican convention. It will concentrate the minds of the delegates and candidates, and, of course, add interest to the spectacle.

"We're hiding in the monkey house"

That must have been one terrifying bear to make people flee from Cincinnati all the way to the Detroit City Council Chamber.

Polar Bears evolved from Brown Bears (the same species as grizzlies) fairly recently as these things go about 400,000 years, and they still occasionally interbreed when the come into contact. But, bears being bears, they probably fight most of the time.

Monkey house or Planned Parenthood?

Not even polar bears would risk entering that little office of horrors.

YoungHegelian said...

See! See!

All week long I've been telling you stupid fucks "Don't poke the Trump bear"!

THIS, THIS is what happens when you poke the bear!

Ron said...

Evan animals desire freedom. Only humans are dumb enough to give it away.

Big Mike said...

Keep in mind that polar bears really like humans -- as a mid afternoon snack.

The Baltimore Zoo had to redesign their polar bear pool after the bears started rocketing out of the water, without any warning, in an attempt to snag the visitors just a few feet away, who were leaning over the simple rail keeping them out of harm's way.

I, for one, encouraged my kids to observe the people, the bears, and the deadly surprise of nearly being swiped by a giant bear paw, as I believed it would be a lesson to them about human stupidity and why it should be avoided. Both my kids have survived to adulthood without being attacked successfully by bears.

Huh. Twitter is talking about an explosion right now at the National Zoo. What is going on?
