It's the bear from A Bears Tail short lived comedy show on Channel 4 last year.... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bears-Tail-C.../dp/B000AB4B86

Lovely talented Mr Daedra decided to use photoshop to cut out his face and put mine in there instead, then put "Do Canadian bears Sh*t in the woods?"... hardy har har

But since its got a bit of ME in it I shrank the file down and used it as my avatar.... long and boring tale but you asked for it!

Hey Printer you're up early. I'm off to do some work where I don't get any money for. Mentally handicapped people moving furniture (I kid you not) I'M not mental by the way, although my wife thinks differently.

It's the relationship with Mr. Gruber, I worried about as a kid. Didn't anyone else find it suspicious how Mr. Gruber was never entirely clear about what he did in the War?

Then there's "Rupert Bear", "Bear in the Big Blue House", "The Bernstein Bears", "Corduroy", "Little Bear", "Brother Bear"...I could go on, but wont!

Can you tell my kids watch TreehouseTV?

Makes me wonder what happens when canadian kids come across the real thing. I suspect the instinct to run away is brainwashed away sometime around the age of three.
