Bear Awareness Week: Tell Stephen Colbert to leave bears alone!  »

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Bears rule! As self-appointed official senior bear correspondent, it’s my duty to let y’all know about Bear Awareness Week (different from Bear Week). We kick off the week with the ColBEAR Campaign, aimed at stopping Stephen Colbert’s war on bears. Dude’s obsession with bears is all too evident on ThreatDown. He must be trying to keep the fact that he was raised by bears on the DL. Haters gonna hate, but jeez, Stephen, bears face poaching and loss of habitat. If that were happening to me, I’d be a godless killing machine, too. OH WAIT, I ALREADY AM.

Because bears are far more rad than scary, crotchety garden gnome/board of Defenders of Wildlife member Ed Asner (of the Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Cloris Leachman (also of Mary and then of Dancing with the Stars, and I’m sorry I knew that without looking it up) are the faces of this campaign:

Go sign the petition asking Mr. Colbert to designate May 19 as “Better Know a Bear Day” to make up for his hilarious transgressions. Then donate $30 to send Stephen a plush teddy bear, ideally culminating in thousands of them landing on his doorstep at the same time. That won’t be creepy at all.
