But we will not forget that the GQP was ready, willing and able to shut down the government, throw the economy into a tail spin as 100s of 1000s of people were put out of work, imperil national security and the TWO worst things of all: Shut down the zoo during the last month of panda proximity AND disable the Fat Bear Contest!!!!
THE TOURNAMENT OF BEARS MUST BE SAVED!!!!
Let’s face facts. In a few months the only panda cams we’ll have access to are the ones from China. We will not have pandas we can visit unless we can go to China or Europe, neither of which is an option for most of us. So, we must have other bears!
As an international celebrity, you should not be surprised that Otis (aka bear #480) had some thoughts about the possibility of the Fat Bear Festival being canceled.
There does seem to be a tradition here of bears addressing the halls of government! (Pinky: I was da first! don’t forget dat!)
Be the BEAR!!!
Bob T don’t make bears mad! Panda
