“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

My brother

We were talking Pokémon talk over IM and somehow Care Bears came up, so naturally (?) I linked him to See My Vest by mollyscribbles, who posted to little_details a few days ago asking:

Approximately how many adult Care Bears would you need to skin to turn their pelts into a woman's suit?

Alex says:
i'm not reading this
Subdee says:
it's not long
Alex says:
it looks long
Subdee says:
HOW MANY ADULT CARE BEARS IN A WOMAN'S SUIT
Subdee says:
u know u want 2

LATER

Alex says:
baby hugs and baby tugs can't be broken up
Alex says:
it's against the natural order of things
Alex says:
and secret bear doesn't ever go anywhere without friend bear
Alex says:
she's the only one he talks to
Alex says:
clearly this author has not done proper research
Subdee says:
i think it's because there weren't enough pink bears

LATER

Alex says:
also, i refuse to acknowledge any computer animated bears
Alex says:
that is, those created after 1987
Alex says:
because i value my childhood, unlike certain people, clearly…

LATER

Alex says:
but he was key in leading the care bear expedition, which had been stranded after the rainbow rescue beam stopped working, to the cloud kipper
Subdee says:
was that the first movie?
Alex says:
yes
Alex says:
the second movie starts with true heart bear and noble hear horse navigating out of a storm to avoid the red dragon (the first time that dark heart manifests itself)
Alex says:
but, at the time, true heart bear and noble heart horse don't have their names yet
Alex says:
they only get them after the great wishing star helps them create the kingdom of caring to preserve the caring in the world

LATER

Alex says:
see, this fanfic author hasn't even gotten genders correct
Subdee says:
really?
Alex says:
secret bear is a man
Alex says:
err, male
Subdee says:
but this isn't the first care bear story she's written
Subdee says:
you're telling me that in all that time, NO ONE corrected her?
Alex says:
unless they changed him in the new releases
Alex says:
which, as far as i'm concerned, never happened, so…
Alex says:
in the original toys / series, secret bear was male
Alex says:
and wasn't pink

LATER

Alex says:
why was grumpy bear there? he's blue
Subdee says:
grumpy bear escapes
Subdee says:
no dead bear, no pink pelt
Alex says:
oh, good
Alex says:
i always liked him

And then we watched youtube videos!

Care Bears in French
Gummi Bears in Russian

The End.
