    I always wondered what a bear would look like running into the woods.....thankfully they recreated that image.

    It still doesn't beat the leprechaun in 'Bama's composite sketch.

    Holy mother of god. I can't believe I just saw that.

    I want to sit in on a local TV news story meeting just once to see if they do this shit with a straight face. I mean, forget the crazy cardboard cutout stuff, who says "A woman thinks she saw a bear nowhere near her house? Send out a crew!"
  6. BUNNY: I'm good. I'm, uh, faster than a bear.

    The bear floated through the woods with a guy in a suit behind it.

    Sometimes it's funnier when you repeat things.

    See: Family Guy.

    I have to say, I thought that was pretty fucking funny.

    He could've done a straight story on the bear.. with no video of the bear. And it would have sucked. This was at least entertaining.

    According to today's Hot Clicks on SI.com, that video actually ran on WJW Fox-8 in Cleveland. Several times.
