Skip to comments.Bear Walks into a Bar, Is Ignored by Humans, Leaves
Posted on 08/01/2013 3:00:38 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows
The 350-pound bear strolled into a bar in Estes Park, Colorado. He sniffed around, then left. None of the humans took any notice:
The bruin, estimated at about 350 pounds and about 6 feet tall when standing on its hind legs, entered a back door of Lonigans Saloon Nightclub and Grill about 9:15 p.m. July 18 and nosed around for a time before exiting the way he came in, the Estes Park Trail-Gazette reported earlier this week.
The bear's visit would have gone unreported if not for a man walking by outside who saw it and security camera footage that captured it for posterity.
I don't blame him a bit for leaving. If you can't even welcome your customers, then they won't stay customers for long.

They probably thought it was Moochele.
This sounds like the opening for a really lame joke.
“So a bear walks into a bar...”
Not being able to look at Youtubes from where I am, I’d guess he walked into an empty room that did not have any doors open to the inside. Still, that’s no way to treat a bear; they should have asked if he wanted a beer.
He says "I'll have...a beer."
The bartender replies "Why the big paws?"
Nope, he walked into the main bar. You’re right, though: The service was un-bear-able.
I did not see any customers.
Last year a bear got inside the Chocolate factory and ate some chocolate. Estes Park is going downhill.
The service was pretty bad I guess.
Authorities are trying to find out of it’s the same bear, according to the video.
See post #7 - I’m not going to make a joke that bad twice.
I shared it once on Facebook, that should be enough. lol
...where's the punch line?
An atheist was walking through the woods.
What majestic trees!
What powerful rivers!
What beautiful animals!
He said to himself.
As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.
He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.
He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him..
He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.
He tripped & fell on the ground.
He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.
At that instant the Atheist cried out,
Oh my God!
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.
You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I dont exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.
Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?
Am I to count you as a believer?
The atheist looked directly into the light, It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?
Very well, said the voice.
The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.
If no human took notice...them uhm, who wrote this story?
Bear growls "Grisly."
“...with these prices, I’m not surprised!”
