Yeah. No one saw this coming....

The sub-title for this blog is 'Bears poked... no waiting' which is in itself a rip off from Canadian TV's Red Green Show, as in 'Don't go poking bears with sticks'. Of course, the difference is that when I do actually poke anything it's with my keyboard, and I'm really just poking politicians or other filthy lucre, not real bears.

This guy, on the other hand, poked everything he could get his hands on, literally. Back when we used to have TV I saw this guy pulling big pissed off venomous snakes out of bushes, climbing trees to escape pissed off poisonous lizards and running away from pissed off wildebeasts...... He seemed to have a knack for pissing off virtually every wild animal he encountered, probably because he was always grabing them by their tails and pulling them out of bushes. Poking the bears as it were.

Well, he will poke no more bears, or snakes or wildebeast. He was killed yesterday in a freak sting-ray accident. At least he died doing what he loved.

The moral of the story? Only poke rhetorical bears. They're much less dangerous.
