Bear x-ing ...

















I was leaving the Wilco show last night at the DECC. (Awesome. Thanks for asking.) I was totally in a hurry, scurrying like a common street rat through the skyway and got held up by security making a human chain in front of a group of hippies.

We had to wait for two real life bears that were being escorted like prisoners to a service elevator.

This is one of those things that just sounds funnier than it actually was. "Sorry I'm late. I get held up by two bears that were waiting for an elevator."

But the best part was when they let us through and two red-eyed 20 somethings said to me:

"Did you see bears, too? Or was that just us?"

So, were they, like, show bears? Or wild bears just looking for some action?

If I understand correctly, they were part of the entertainment at the Boat Show. And I think maybe they ride scooters. Seriously.

For some reason, the idea of bears being made to ride scooters and take elevators really brings me down.

I work at the DECC, and as far as I know (I could be wrong, however) they're no scooters involved.

They also peed in that elevator earlier in the night... It smelled funny. Well funnier than how pee normally smells...

So, maybe it's just me, a Montanan, but...aren't they supposed to be hibernating right now? Don't show bears need to hibernate? That seems like it should be in their contract rider for the DECC.
