Gummy Bears Don’t Like Beartraps


sad gummybear

About five years ago, while wasting time online, I came across a video clip that changed my life. Dramatic, you say? Not at all! It became my mantra; I started repeating it word-for-word (the video is only about 40 seconds long so this wasn’t my most amazing feat ever, but close) and soon had all of my friends repeating it too.

To my friends, you’re welcome.

If you enjoy watching things that are awesome, and also want to understand my cheerful drawing above, go check out this epic video of a gummy bear’s misadventure courtesy of Robot Chicken. You are also welcome.

*This is not a real gummy bear mangled by a beartrap

Vote on the poll below and maybe he’ll get a shiny new limb!

  1. Did you draw this? It’s awesome!! And as one fo your friends who also repeats this, in its entirety- thanks. Also, as someone who is neither your mother, nor related to your mother (althrough an unabashed fan of your mother), I think this blog is a GREAT idea!! And a belated happy birthday :- )

    • I did draw it, and thank you! Gummy Bear has been such an important piece of our lives that it deserved some wider recognition. Gummy Bear!

  2. I have shown this video to some new people in my life and they definitely don’t seem as amused as I am…it’s sad 😦

    • That is sad, and a testament to how stupid people are. Don’t worry, your Boston friends will always laugh with you (especially me. I laugh at everything) 😀
