Blog Guy, I really enjoyed your item on Medo, the world’s cutest bear, visiting your blog a few days ago.

Thanks, that one was very popular. Readers loved Medo.

Can you give us some more pix of him?

Sure, you got it. I’ll do it right now as my Sunday blog post, and then I can go back to sleep.

Not so fast, Speedy. You owe us something more than that if it’s the only post of the day. It can’t just be more shots of Medo, no matter how cute he is.

You’re too smart for me. Tell you what. How about if I throw in a cat riding on some guy’s head?

You’d DO that? No wonder we all keep coming back here! Woo-hoo! I’m livin’ the dream today!

Well, let’s just call it a win-win, huh?

Truly, this is un-bearable. The cuteness has decreased my IDGAS quotient by a factor of at least 2.

By the way, that couch the little tyke is hanging out on, is that off of one of those “Addiction” TV shows I keep hearing about, where the people eat their furniture? Or is that just furniture couture in Slovenia?

Medo is just so cute for a vampire bear! Why, he even appears to use the wall as a guest book. Whoops! That artery did some spraying!

The Cat in the hat,
I like that!
Do you think he spoke
to the imprisoned bloke?
Or went to the bank
with a fish in a tank?
Or is he a familiar
or something similar
who’ll invoke a spell
and never tell?

Say BG, you have way too many tags on this post.. any special reason why?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Not sure what you mean, Shra. There are seven – I usually try to use between four and eight.

Ahh, my bad… I must have come across the lesser tagged articles.. after all, Medo does fit in a lot of categories…

@Shra – Not surprising that Medo looks stuffed, he just finished off half of the couch!

I think my sofa looks a bit like that, under the blanket I have covered it with to hide the broken bits. So how come I don’t have a cutesie pet bear?

Though I did have a stray kitten with that evil stare, before I managed to rehome it…
