    When a bear bites you in the butt

    Straight from my own zip code:

    Bear bites Florida woman in rear end as she walks her dog

    "Ouch! A woman walking her dog near an apartment complex in Longwood, Fla., early Friday morning was bitten in the rear end by a bear."

    "The woman was taken to Florida Hospital-Altamonte in Altamonte Springs with four puncture wounds, the paper reported."

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Hope the bears alright, bears usually avoid humans, rabies maybe?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    If I was a bear and I was going to bite a woman that's exactly the spot I would go for.
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    I guess the bear didn't like the way she tasted.

    Hill told the Sentinel that officers are setting traps for the bear, which will be euthanized if it is caught.

    Pretty standard. They'll check the bear for rabies.

    A resident of the complex, Arlene Friedlander, 79, told the paper that she often sees bears near the apartments. "I'm not afraid of them," she said.
    If you don't like bear bits in the butt, this might be a reason to be afraid now.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    ....bear behind... <snicker>

    Scary really. There are a few areas I ride alone that are mountain lion country. As I'm creeping along huffing and puffing I occasionally think "gee I must look like a wounded animal ripe for the picking..."

    You really can't blame the bear.

    That woman's rear end looks like two pigs fighting over a box of Milk Duds.

    Does she look like John Candy? might have been the bear from The Great Outdoors.

    Another true to life Rubenstory(TM) from the old deep south.

    Local deputy Cletus Jones has arrested the ample size woman for being out in public "bear ass".
