WTF. Who comes up with this stuff?

I was REALLY hoping this was going to be video of Kobayashi getting eaten by a bear. Oh well... maybe Kobayashi could challenge a shark next? Sharks are way messier and less focused. I bet he'd win that one!

"Of course the bear doesn't know it's a competition, he's just a natural eating machine."

I knew well before clicking it would be a "battle" in terms of eating faster than the other. And yet I clicked anyway, apparently because I relish disappointment.

Assume no element of surprise.

Possibly the greatest piece of sports commentary of all time, with regard to the contrasting styles of bear and human: "Obviously, he has a different approach."

Obviously, indeed.

Not only is this a one link youtube post, it is a one-link-youtube-post to an event that happened six years ago!

This is from Man vs. Beast, a fox special.

That is bad, but the real crime here is that you did not link to the other videos from the same program involving sumo wrestlers in a tug of war with an orangutan and midgets competing with an elephant to pull a dc 10.

I'm going to flag this, but please feel free to repost with all those other videos as well.

I remember when Man vs. Beast was on Fox. Ahh, that was a simpler time, when Fox filled the summer months with campy specials like When Good Pets Go Bad and Alien Autopsy.

Now we get Don't Forget the Lyrics instead. Dear God, what I wouldn't give to see Wayne Brady mauled by a bear.

Question- What kind of bear is best?

In case you misunderstood me: I want this post deleted, and I want you to post another one with links to all of the segments from Man vs. Beast. In a row.

Make me proud.

Goddamn, this is old news.

I read it as Kodiak beer. That would have been more interesting. But not much.

Camel vs. Little People relay race.

Dustin Diamond vs. Ron Palillo (oops, this is a completely different horrible-awesome fox special)

A compilation of Super Jockey clips, most of which date back to the 90s. Sadly, Japanese tv is no longer like this...

Is that Larry freaking Merchant introducing the bear?

What a great little clip.

Killing one bear should aggro every bears.

I just want to see a contest between the prime number shitting bear and a human.

I don't care how old this is, it was hysterical.

I am blessed (cursed) with an entire high school football team downstairs. They're sitting around being adolescents preparing for the beginning of two-a-days tomorrow. This involves beer, XBox and profanity. Girls, maybe -- but hopefully I'll be asleep by then.

They worship this Kobywhatever guy. It's like it's a real sport and they shit themselves over this video. Mind you, these are boys looking at full rides to Division II (maybe better, in a few cases) schools and consider themselves serious athletes.

Thanks. I'm like part of the 'crew' now instead of being the creepy old guy who keeps yelling for no reason.

Why did I not see this on the Colbert Report?

Hey! Here are the children of the wacky family! "Thank you for so many hamburgers," they say! "Ohhhh," says the father, "you cannot have hamburgers or candy canes until you do your homework!" "But we have no homework," say the children. "No homework?" Says the wacky father, "Then you will have to fight the bear!"
