    A lawyer from the ACLU was taking a walk through the woods.
    "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What
    beautiful animals!"
    he said to himself. As he was
    walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the
    bushes behind him.

    He turned to look and saw an 11 foot grizzly bear charge
    towards him.

    He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over
    his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on

    He looked over his shoulder again and the bear was
    even closer. He tripped and fell on the ground. He
    rolled over to pick himself up but saw the bear right
    on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and
    raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant the lawyer cried out to the Lord.
    Time stopped, the bear froze, the forest was silent. A
    bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of
    the sky, "You deny my existence for all of these
    years, teach others I don't exist, litigate me out of
    every public forum and even credit creation to a
    cosmic accident.

    Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?
    Am I to count you as a believer?"
    The lawyer looked
    directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of
    me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now,
    but...perhaps could you make the BEAR a Christian?"

    "Very well," said the voice.
    The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed.
    And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both
    paws together and bowed his head and spoke: "Lord,
    bless this food, which I am about to receive through
    Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen."

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    If you find yourself in the woods with a friend when a bear attacks, remember - you don't have to run faster than the bear.....

    ...just faster than your friend! ;) :D

    The safest way to get around in bear country is to wear a little bell. The ringing of the bell warns the bears that you are there, so they can avoid you. The other thing is to keep your eyes open for sign of bears, and not to follow trails where there are bear droppings.
    Bear droppings are easily identified, ........................they are the ones with all the little bells in them. :eek:

    I like it.

    Hey, is it just a coincidence that there are advertisements in this thread (at bottom) for Real Black Bear Rugs and Canadian Bear & Fur Rugs?

    <Edit> Wow, now they're gone.
    <edit> Ok, now they're back.:confused:
