I told Ranger Rick..... I'd give my right arm for that picnic basket.

I never thought he'd take me serious.

Here, we have "The Claw". It is the latest in stealth poaching enforcement tools.

The perp will see the lifelike action of the paw and claws and assume that the rest of the animal is on the other side of the fence, trying to dig under it.

A sure fire arrest almost every time it is deployed.

After we finally put out the forest fire, this was what we found -- this arm, some matches the bear had been playing with, and a forest ranger's hat the bear had been wearing.

A joint study conducted by Al Gore and the IPCC, has found that global warming is causing animals' limbs to fall off. Thousands of species are threatened with extinction.

After thorough forensic examination, it has been determined that this limb was severed by a hockey stick.

My grant money came through. Utilizing the latest in 3D printing technology, I am able to conclusively prove that grizzly bears can pick neither their noses or the lint from their arses. The claws get in the way, you see.

My next project, should my grant money come through, is to put a bell on a cat.

This is what happens when you send the rookie out for some Bear Claws. Maybe I should have said donuts?

Bimbo Bakeries decided to off shore their production to China........... They got quite a surprise when they inspected their 'Bear Claw' pastries.
