All Around the Ford Bronco

All around the Ford Bronco
The polar bear chases the photographer man
If the photographer slips on the snow
Munch goes the bear if he can

I guess I shouldn’t complain about Palmetto Bugs in such a loud voice.....

Maureen said...

"And laugh goes the OTHER photographer, documenting the entire chase scene."

VE said...

queen goob - Yes, I don't think Palmetto bugs, while gross, will eat you

maureen - Good point. It's a wonder he could hold the camera from laughing...

Theresa said...

That's the best story without words I've seen in ages, but your poem made it even funnier. They look like they're having a great time, but I sure wouldn't want to play that game. Where'd you find the photos? You weren't the cameraman, were you?

Marie said...

Haha what about the guy who is taking pictures rather than helping?

HeyJoe said...

So how does it end; escape or carnage?

Yea, some friend.

“Help me!”

Click –click-click. “This is going to make a great blog post!”

leelee said...

what queen goob said!

VE said...

theresa - I don't know the origin of the photos. They were sent to me by a friend via email and I thought they'd make a funny story/post

marie - Yeah, what a friend!

heyjoe - I'm as in the dark as you. I don't know how it ends. They weren't me taking these...

leelee - Puts things in perspective, huh?

Theresa said...

I'd need a stiff drink after something like that. And my so-called shutter-happy friend better be buying.

Beth said...

I'm not sure you have a future as a song writer - but good attempt.
Amazing pictures. I am terrified of bears. And, yes, I've seen some up close - or close enough for me.

Quickroute said...

"What aboout the guy who was taking pictures?" That was you VE - fess up! - nice photos though!

Bee said...

Poor little polar bear! Taunting him with his food like that! Bad! Bad people! Let him eat his photographer in one piece!


I love LOVE where they're both looking over the truck!

'Hmmm... did he leave?'

"Hmmm... can I grab him from here?'

VE said...

theresa - I think after just standing there taking picture, the shutter guy should be buying drinks for some time to come!

beth - Yeah, it was kind of a lame parody attempt on that one. I once walked right into a grizzly bear in Alaska. Rounded a bend on a trail and came within 3 feet of him face-to-face. Luckily he tore off up the side of a mountain as I ran the other way. He went up that hill like a freight train. To even have thought I might outrun him to get up a tree was utterly ridiculous after witnessing that.

quickroute - Wish I could laugh and say the cameraman was me...alas, I don't know the source of these.

VE said...

bee - Yeah, that is funny. Luckily the bear didn't just jump up on the Bronco and go after him directly from the top...

Serena Joy said...

Yikes! So, how'd that turn out? The bear usually wins, but maybe not this time. I hope not!:)

Kurt said...

Get underneath the car.

Michelle Ann said...

Gosh! I do this with my dogs all the time...never thought of trying it with a bear.

Megan said...

Can't wait to show these to my little nephew. It's going to make our next game of "Chase me!" even more fun.

"Ok, Auntie Bacon, now it's MY turn to be the bear!"

lime said...

sheeeeit!

VE said...

sj - No idea how it turned out. I would guess ok, otherwise it would be kind of morbid releasing pictures you took of your friend just before he got eaten...

kurt - Who? The bear?

michelle - Then you're ready when it happens with a bear!

megan - "Auntie Bacon"...that's so cute

lime - Yeah, I bet that's what he said!

damon said...

He probably forgot about those extra slim-jims in his pocket.
Or that famous bears HATE paparazzi.

VE said...

damon - Now you're on to something...he's the Sean Penn of Polar Bears!!!

Alex L said...

Silly photographer doesnt he know your meANT TO ACT LIKE A SEAL WHEN A POLAR BEAR SEES YOU.... god dam capslock.

Jacki said...

You know, I would probably enjoy being chased by the polar bear...how many people can brag about that? Well....maybe more if they hadn't gotten mauled to death...but still....a cool story to brag about.

VE said...

alex l - Wait a minute, don't the bears eat the seals though??

jack - Yes, there are many things that would be fun to tell about later...if you live. I have a number of those kind of stories myself.

RED MOJO said...

Good thing that guy didn't drive a mini!

Alex L said...

Oh you mean he was meant to escape...

VE said...

red mojo - I think the polar bear could have eaten the mini...

alex l - You mean this is like death row in Alaska? They just throw them out there for entertainment until they do get eaten.

Kelley said...

bwaaaaaa haaaaa haaaaa!

All that is going through my head is Nom Nom Nom...

Arcdove said...

I think I've seen enough LOLcats to state with scientific accuracy that Polar Bears do not go 'munch', they go 'NOM' when they try and eat you!

VE said...

kelley - Why did I know you'd find this the funniest?

arcdove - Welcome. See, I didn't know that. Not enough field testing experience I guess...
