Bears Separated By A Common Language

"American bears are, for the most part, more assertive and autonomous than English bears." She's talking about bears in popular culture, but this comparison between our bears and those of our former colonial overlords will be of interest to anyone who has an obsession with bears, books and Britain. Surely I'm not the only one.

Seriously though, large, hairy gay men are so much more timid in England, right?

I have not recovered from the photos a while back of those bears that lost all their fur. The horrible knowledge that bears are not cute, but are actually wolverine weasels who dress in cute suits. I can't un-know it. Cast from the garden, etc.
