I’ve read this article maybe twenty times, and I still can’t quite wrap my head around it.

A woman in Arkansas has been arrested…for stealing a teddy-bear from a baby. When a local detective was asked for a possible motive, he answered, “That’s a real good question.”

This story wasted its potential: had the bear contained some explosive device, we’d have had a national hero.

Had the bear contained a large and valuable diamond, we’d have had two mice from the Rescue Aid Society get it back and rescue Penny from the alligators.

If the bear somehow became sentient and called for the woman’s help to get him free, I’d… board up the windows, and up my dosage.

But, no. Apparently some woman in Arkansas had such a sudden and desperate need for a stuffed toy, that she simply had to lean into a stranger’s car whose windows were open and snatch a teddy-bear from the arms of a small child. But perhaps the most heinous part of the whole ordeal is, we’ll never know why she did it.

    That is a mighty cute teddy bear though … too bad the bear didn’t talk back, I’ve been wishing for a modern day Teddy Ruxpin (kind of like the bear from AI) for about 10 years.

    Surely it’s in the American Constitution. The poor lady was just exercising her right bear arms.

    Wow, I’m just imagining her having to explain to the other prisoners why she’s being locked up. I’ll bet she’s getting no respect :)

    The lady was teaching that kid a lesson : this life is not gonna be a walk in the park.
