i was watching the discovery channel or animal planet or some other educational propaganda channel and there was this fascinating show on polar bears. i really enjoyed it mostly because 1. bears look very cute when they walk (or "lumber", if you will) and 2. the people at the zoo fed the polar bears watermelon. now, i'm no fancy bear expert, but i'm pretty sure the native food of the mighty polar bear is not african vine fruit. "yes, we've done extensive research on these bears, and we've concluded that they thrive on watermelon and any of the fine pastries manufactured by Hostess."
