above: bear unintentionally terrorizes local women on the carnival’s bumper cars.

i mean, come on. he’s probably just trying to drive to work. it looks like he’s staring them down for not staying in their lane. this is one of those images where i have no idea of its provenance but just like to imagine what ensued. also, this bear is most likely a human in a suit, sadly.
