That is a school bus he is in. Anybody here tall enough to look the driver in the face?

Anybody else think the bear might be thinking this is the biggest banana ever?

Ok, you go down to the ice flow. Then take a right at the ice berg, Not the little one but the big one. Continue to walrus island. Then bear left and it not far till you see penguins playing on the ice slide. Then go about.....

Trying to understand the locals in giving out of state tourists directions, the language difference can just be a bear...A white polar bear....

As momma bear leaves the produce department and enters the meat department, she's checks over whats available and looks for a ripe one.

She tells baby bear you can tell a ripe one by how they smell. And when ripe, they are not only tasty, but chewy and crunchy in the middle.

You get an over ripe one.....and not only are they soft. they go right to my hips.

Because of the long arctic days and great distances between towns, Sven, the bus driver, doesn't get home to see his family very often, so tries to drive by to say hello whenever he can.

Iggy, in desperate need of new glasses, offers to wait for what he thinks is Mrs. Klondike, to get her son Johnny on the bus.

He thinks to himself, should I offer her a breath mint? and why are those kids screaming?

As the once popular game show "Cash Cab" ratings started to drop, the producers tried other areas such as Alaska to tape the show......but soon ran into problems, and found out that when a contestant used their "shout out for help" to help with an answer, there was a shortage of people to respond.

"Please Mr, I don't really want to impose, but would you mind telling Al Gore that his science fiction movie about global Warming is a farce"

"Its f f f f r r reezing out here and we have run out of researchers to keep our tummies warm,... and worse than that... there is more of us now. And why won't Big Al come out and bear the elements instead of riding about in all the flash energy guzzly gear of his. Is he a hyporcite or what! and he wants to stop us bears from getting a better life by keeping us out in the cold with no fires!
