The Number One Threat in Germany?

BEARS!!!:

After Cute Knut and Flocke, Germany on Friday got a new cub to ooh and aah over -- and this time one which hasn't been rejected or eaten by its mother.

Two thoughts occur to me:

  • The article is notable not only for its dry humor but also for its very, very unpolished feel. I can't help but wondering if it was somehow slipped passed the editor.
  • As my fellow South Carolinian Stephen Colbert dutifully reminds us so often, bears are nothing more than godless killing machines. Don't be fooled by the cute and cuddly image--this button-eyed killer would rip you apart in a heartbeat.
