Saving Mother Earth, One Dead Adorable Baby Bear At A Time

Hey, what can I say – sometimes in the great war to save Gaia, you have to do some… unsavory things, like killing baby polar bears so they don’t have to suffer the humiliation of being raised by humans after being rejected by their mothers. With an assist from our resident Photoshop genius, Jonathan Spalink, I humbly present this artistic token of support to our friends in the environmental movement, in the hopes that it will help them to educate the public about the importance of their quest to save this bear by killing it.

The boss is out of town this weekend, and he left me the keys to this sweet blog!

It should be noted that cooler heads have prevailed in this situation…

    FOTFL!!! Too much, guys.

    How about “get Al Gore off the stage or the bear gets it…”

    Don –

    we’ll see if we still have jobs on monday. Your tag is good, though. I think we may have to resurrect this concept again in the future…

    Doug –

    Wait, animals don’t feel embarassment. How would it be “humiliated” if humans raised it? It doesn’t have a sense of humiliation. And besides, many animals in America that weren’t domestic (like polar bears, wolfs, ect) and it actually better. They were easier to handle for vets and they acted normal with their own species. Killing the bear wouldn’t help the envioromental situation. Enough bears are dying from hunting and global warming. We don’t need any snooty animal rights people running around killing healthy baby animals that are already at risk of extinction.

    Me, you’ll be interested to know that the polar bear population has doubled to 22,000 in the past forty years. Quit drinking the kool-aid and do a little fact finding on your own. You can start here:

    You guys are sick!! Killing baby bears is NOT, i repeat NOT okay!! That would not be putting them out of their misory!! There are human babies facing the same problem, would you kill them too?!?!?!

  • Marc Vander Maas

    Satire, folks. Satire. We don’t want the bears to die.

  • how would you people feel if somebody wre to do that to you huh you would be mad!!!!!!!!

  • if the bears are raised by humans it would be better then being killed by you sick repolsive people. how could you think about harming a poor defensless creature like a baby or any age or type of animal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you think your saving it but you are stupid your not saving the bear by killing it but NORMAL humans can give animals that have been rejected a second chance!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • how would you people feel if somebody wre to do that to you huh you would be mad!!!!!!!!

    Marc, it is bad taste to just shoot a polar bear. You need to have a good recipe (perhaps a stew or some form of breading) and soup or salad side, perhaps a baked Alaska, Cuban cigar and coffee top it off.

    This post has brought me no end of happiness over the years. It just keeps on giving.

  • how come take a gun and kill a bear. the bear is so cute.
