Bar the doors, these bears are boors!

June 4, 2008

pandas-more-160.jpgBlog Guy, a few weeks ago you had a post called Please bear with me… where you invited readers to help choose the cutest animal on Earth – polar bears or giant pandas. Was that ever resolved?

No, and don’t even get me started. Those pandas turned out to be, excuse me, overbearing. They sent their “committee” to meet with me, and they never left.

They just sit around in my front yard, drinking bamboo schnapps and ordering cheap Chinese carry-out, and then tossing the containers in my bushes. And I’m so tired of the bawdy limericks they make up! Trust me, guys, “panda” doesn’t rhyme with “Wanda” as well as you think it does!

I’m inclined to call the contest in favor of polar bears, who are clean and pleasant and enjoy classical music, but I’m afraid the pandas would trash my place. I guess it’s a stand-off at this point.

Please bear with me…
