Help, a bear is *still* eating me!
December 2, 2008 5:04 PM   Subscribe

Mykle Hansen (previously) has now shot a public service video about being eaten by a bear, to promote the book version of the podcast that's entertained many a MeFite.

If you have any questions about being eaten by a bear, he might be in your town soon. Apparently it qualifies as "bizarro fiction". (More like bearzarro.)

Hilarious.
I find the problem with phrasing like "Gayest shit ever" is that I can't tell if it's an:
1. Intentional putdown
2. Sarcastic faux-insult
3. Backfiring insult
Can we all agree on what gay should mean? I vote Sarcastic faux-insult.

Context is everything. Words are just funny pictures and weird sounds.

Not quite John Hodgman, but presence of entrails makes up for a lot.

Well if they'd bought the book or read AskMe they'd be fine.

Gotta admit, the pee scene, and the entrails, made me laugh out loud.

Not LOL.

That's so 2006. I don't do that anymore.

The ad for this page, for those who are logged in, is for "gay chubby dating." You know. Bears.

He's a cross between John Hodgman and Stephen Colbert.

And, both being male, I didn't think they could even have children.

I dunno, I still like the old meaning. As in, the root word of alligaytor, duh.

Grizzly Man is not only one of the best documentaries every made by Werner Herzog, but also one of the best movies about "bears eating me". And it's gayer shit.

You kind of end up on the bears side, really.

From the Wiki link above:

"Harvey Robinson, 69, male

Black bear
Fatally mauled while picking plums at Selkirk, north of Winnipeg, Manitoba.[12]"

Do we get to choose our deaths? Cuz this guy hit the fkn jackpot.
