Bear Walks into a Bar, Is Ignored by Humans, Leaves
Neatorama ^ | July 31, 2013 | John Farrier

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.

“So a bear walks into a bar...”

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.

Last year a bear got inside the Chocolate factory and ate some chocolate. Estes Park is going downhill.

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!’

Time Stopped.
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 don’t 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.’

Bear walks into a bar, demands a double boilermaker. Bartender asks "So, have a bad day?"

Bear growls "Grisly."

That's actually the best thing to do when a bear strolls in.

Same thing with cougars (both kinds).

Watched the video. There's no doubt, it was Michelle the Wookie...Obama’s beard.

With school out for the summer, think she was looking for some more of those snacks that she's always stealing from the children.

So a bear, an illegal alien, a Muslim, and a Marxist walk in to bar.

Bartender says, "what will you have, Mr. Bear?"

The bear replies, "vodka and cranberry."

Then the bartender asks, "how about you, Mr. President?"

This is hardly special. A bear walks into a bar everyday in San Francisco.

An old bear at the Estes Park zoo
Could always find something to do;
..When it bored him to go
..On a walk to and fro,
He’d about face and walk fro and to.

Estes Park, full of Eastern Liberals getting away from the hell holes they created back East. The bear did not want to drink with them, so he left.

Question: How many times do you get a chance to offer a beer to a bear in a bar?

Answer: Once.

This is the kind of behavior you see when Coloradans start restricting firearms.

Soon, all the bears will be in bars seeking beers.

A bear and her two cubs broke into a house here a couple of weeks ago.

Bears Break-In To Estes Park Home

The mama grabbed my dog by the throat. I reacted by screaming and waving my arms. She exited through the small casement window which she had broken when entering. The cubs ran the opposite direction into the powder room. I quickly shut the door to the powder room, grabbed a phone, closed the dogs in my bedroom, held the entrance window shut (since it was broken), and phoned 911.

When the police/sheriff/Park personnel peeked into the bathroom, both cubs were sitting in the sink!

I saw this on a T shirt in Yellowstone last week.

A man and a bear come face to face.

The man says “I’m a Vegetarian!”

The bear says “I’m a Humanatarian!”

Then there was the family who stopped in Cody Wy and bought bear repellant. Like bug repellant, they thought they were supposed to spray it on themselves.

All went to the hospital.

So this bear watches a Coors Beer truck crossing the mountains several times a week and the bear thinks to himself, “I want to try one of those Coors Beers!”

He follows the road to a bar and sees the Coors Beer truck pulling out. He walks into the bar, slides into a booth and waves to the barkeep. “I’ll try one of those Coors Beers!”

The bartender replies, “Bob’s bar doesn’t serve bears beer.”

The bear says, “What?”

“Bob’s bar doesn’t serve bears beer. It’s our motto and our policy.”

The bear, now angry says, “In that case, I’m gonna take this big paw, rip off that woman’s head and eat it.”

The bartender responds, “I’m sorry, Bob’s bar doesn’t serve bears beer.”

The bear walks up to the woman, says “Pardon me,” rips her head off and eats it. He turns to the bartender and says, “What do you say about that?”

“Bob’s bar doesn’t serve bears beer nor do we serve druggies!”

“What...what the hell are you talking about,” cried the bear.

“That was a bar-bitch-you-ate.”

It looked to me like there were customers sitting at the tables in the upper right of the video.
They are clearer toward the end. Check out the 37 sec mark on that video (post#2).
Isn’t that a man and a woman sitting with their backs to the bear?
