Polar Bear, I know you could tear me limb from limb, but my goodness, how I'd love to snuggle with you!
And what a perfect day for snuggling. It's International Polar Bear Day!
Are you ready to celebrate? To take the polar bear plunge?
Not this kind...

I think those people's brains have frozen. (I bet that's not all.)
No, I'm talking about this kind!

I ask you, what could rank higher on the cuteness meter?
Knut! You're so cute! Even though you now weigh 500 pounds and could crush me like a grape.

I'm sure you're well aware that things aren't all Vanity Fair and roses for the polar bear right now. (No? Hop over HERE and let Sharon Lawrence (who went to my high school by the way-Go Caps!- tell you about it.) As global warming melts the polar ice caps, polar bears lose their only way to hunt.
Yep, that's right, bad bad news for polar bears. Isn't the economy enough to worry about?
My right eye won't stop twitching and I have a mad mad urge to drown my sorrows in a huge vat of macaroni and cheese. If I don't relax I'm going to be as blubbery as an eye- twitching polar bear!
I know. Let's just celebrate the polar bear and do what we can to help them.
Now for happy thoughts...
Polar bears like to play with tires.

I sure hope that's a Michelin!
Some polar bears play with dogs.
