Guys!

TIL that the Greek word for BEAR is Arctus....

And I also learned that the reason it is called the Arctic Circle is because it means "the circle where bears are" and the Antarctic Circle is "the circle without any bears".

Which means the Earth's poles are named after whether or not they have bears in them!

Hoo hooooo!

Bears so influential!

Schlop lives on the Arctic Malm!

Apparently it is Fat Bear Week! There is a national park in Alaska where people vote on which brown bear is the fattest.

Here are some fat bear tips if any one wants to compete next year:
Quote:

We want the rolls—especially rolls around the haunches, a sign of peak fatness. Much like a football player, a bear’s neck should get so large that its head starts looking disproportionately small. The belly should hang as close to the ground as possible, the fur coat should get glossy and thick enough to cover up scars, and the bear should have the lethargic and slow-moving demeanor of, well, an animal that’s about to mostly sleep for six months. When Fat Bear Week finally rolls around, the healthiest bears are cartoonishly rounded and majestic, so stuffed full that no other word fits better than “rotund.”

The winner the last couple years has been Otis, but it looks like he was beaten out by Beadnose in the bracket this year.

Cool!

Uh, Shnoodles - are you sure that "Otis" isn't really a fake name for DJ?

I substituted DJ's name into this quote and it fits a little too well:

Quote:
Consider the classic advice for how to photograph well: Sit up straight, lift your chin, don’t get too close to the camera. DJ does the opposite, to great effect. He leans forward on his haunches, pushing the rolls up around his neck and letting the rest of his fat lump around him. On his best days he looks more Hershey’s Kiss than bear. Other bears tend to stand while catching fish, dispersing their weight for the cameras. DJ slouches chubbily.

Hey you Fat Bear guys,

Congrats to Beadnose for being crowned the Fattest Bear in 2018! Beadnose beat out Otis who was the reining champion - and get this - Beadnose is a she-bear!
