It's a Jungle Out There

You know, it was bad enough when we only had to contend with hang gliding, GWOT Bears:

Getting back to the bear thing, there actually is a history of Bear-on-Terrorist activity. Jihadilocks and the GWOT Bear:

Don’t worry, it has a happy ending. Bear vs. AK-toting muj in a Kashmiri cave, bear wins. Scratch two jihadis. BBC report suggests a sort of Islamic extremist take on the Goldilocks story. Jihadilocks occupy the bear’s den, are making pudding when GWOT Bear comes home. “Who’s been making pudding in MY cave.”

Two other militants escaped, one of them badly wounded, after the attack in Kulgam district, south of Srinagar.

The militants had assault rifles but were taken by surprise – police found the remains of pudding they had made to eat when the bear attacked.

More bears like this, please.

Yeah, but this is the age of Obama. He has to go stare at his navel for three months just to decide whether to deploy humans vs. jihadis, let alone wildlife. The Caliphate will be restored, inshallah, before you’ll see any ursine operations.

I dunno. I'm telling ya, this war has gone to the dogs.

Our American k-9s are braver than the toughest Taliban...Go dogs, get 'em! (sorry, can't help myself, love the dog pic)

I did too, Retriever. I very nearly left out the graphic (thinking the surprise would be greater once readers clicked on the link). But the picture tickled me and I wanted to see it for a few days.

"More bears like this, please."

Or, more bears like this... ;-)

One might call those the "AGW" bears.

Posted by: camojack at March 18, 2010 01:12 AM

Sorta gives a whole new light on "Care Bears"...

"...police found the remains of pudding they had made..."

Three course meal -- two entrees and dessert.

"Our American k-9s..."

Technically, that's a Austrian k-9, but other than that, still a true statement ret.

Man, will I ever learn to proof read before I send? By the way, Caz, hi!

I was just thinking about you the other day - wondering what you were up to. So nice to see your name again :)

Care Bears are Q ships.

And more useful than Q-tips.

If a dog doesn't wear any pants, how can he $#!7 in them?

Posted by: I Call BS at March 21, 2010 04:42 PM

Yeah, the pup in the pic is actually wearing a jumpsuit...

Posted by: BillT at March 21, 2010 05:59 PM

...with a 27" zipper!

Bada boom. Bada Bing!

Posted by: Cassandra at March 21, 2010 07:44 PM

Eck-shully, I was going to mention that the pooch's apparel appears to be a powder-blue *thong*, but I thought by refraining from that, I'd be playing my small part in maintaining the illusion of dignity and decorum exhibited thus far.

Biiiiig mistake...

Posted by: BillT at March 22, 2010 06:03 AM

Well, it isn't a thong as much as it is a sling.
He still looks like he is cool with it. He/she still gets to play with the hooman.

Just out of curiosity, does the pup have a parachute on the suit? Does it automatically deploy if they get separated?

Posted by: Cricket at March 22, 2010 07:43 AM

No puppy parachute, so his a$$ is literally "in a sling" -- but he's strapped to his handler with the same type straps that attach the handler's chute to the handler.
