I Hope We ALL Heed This Lesson

Authorities cut open a slain bear and found a shoe lost by a Florida man while fighting off a bear that attacked his 8-year-old son in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The footwear was discovered in the black bear’s stomach during a necropsy at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Medical Center, Smokies spokeswoman Nancy Gray said Monday.
It leaves little doubt rangers killed the right bear.

No, not the “ask Manolo about fashion forward forest footwear” lesson. I mean the “don’t tease bears when you smell like a bucket o’ Popeye’s spicy” lesson!

Authorities say the attack was unprovoked, though Pala said their clothes might have smelled like fried chicken from a meal an hour earlier.

Jeez louise, I’ve got a brain and an opposable thumb, and I’d still bite you for that!
Fried chicken is one of the world’s least understood provocateurs. Makes anything with olfactory neurosensory cells lose it’s mind.

  1. I seem to recall that the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was shot over a bucket of KFC. Fried Chicken is Power.

    That’s why Putin went into Georgia, he heard the wily Americans had opened a Popeyes in Tbilisi! Foward the dogs of war! For victory and drumsticks!

  4. And wings! Don’t forget the wings!

  5. And I KNOW you stayed in the car behind locked doors until the scent wore off, Diptera.
    Damn, ebola!! Smart baby boy, I hadn’t even CONSIDERED that possibility!

    When Putin went down to Georgia,
    He was looking for some wings to steal,
    He was heaving sighs, thinking “thighs”,
    He’d heard the drive-through had a deal!

    Gawd, I love fried chicken. With Louisiana hot sauce. It’s the devil’s invention, but thank God for the devil.

  7. I’m sure the bear was thinking “DAMN! Hot sauce! That’s the only thing this kid is missing…”

  8. Chuckle. “Grizzly bear scat smells like pepper and has little bells in it.”

  9. Ebola says:

    Grizzlies eat Mexican jesters? No one expects the Spanish Idiot! …however, grizzlies find them tasty.

    For some reason that makes me think of the campfire scene in Blazing Saddles.
