He looks so very earnest, unaware of his doom. And the bear, is it a bear? Is it a bee? We will never know. This child was eaten shortly after the picture was taken.
Lamb of Doom
Isn't it terrible? Do you not fear? Do you, as I do, weep for all of mankind?
This will not be easy.
Hold my hand.
Now they come in rigid plastic?!?!?!?!?
Next you'll tell me that babies can wear them as costumes.
What's that you say?
Then it all started to slowly fall apart, marching us blindly towards the demise of all that is good and wholesome. Tilting us ever closer to the brink.
Teddy Bears Dressed as Other Animals had found us ... even here, in the very heart of wholesomeness: the Sunday afternoon baby shower.
Gaze, if you can bear it, upon the horror.
Teddy Bear in Bunny Rabbit's clothing;
The devil's own minion.
And then, as if to mock our pain, this monstrosity emerged:
Monkey Parts Embedded in a Blanket.
I don't know about you, but I know a certain someone who would be deeply unsettled by these images. For starters, the little simian body is literally divided into three pieces:
(1) The head-torso portion
(2) The legs-abdomen portion
(3) The rear-end-tail portion (see it again!):
Second -- Do you mean to tell me that somebody actually means to wrap the impressionable and trusting little body of an infant in this depravity?
You see my friends, we must be vigilant. We cannot rest for a fraction of an instant in our quest to protect the world from the encroachment of these evils.
Keep your eyes peeled, and alert me immediately of any further incidents.
From DaMasta's cell phone camera:
bear as heart
Monkeys as ballerinas; a subset of TBDOA.
While not a sign of the Apocalypse per se, it is perhaps a sign
of something milder, such as
gastrointestinal angst to come.
Bears dressed in cute outfits holding cute animals.
That is just wrong!
Bear as teacher.
As if we would allow the sinister
brainwashing that would ensue!
Thank you both for your vigilance. Let's all keep our eyes open; the signs are there, you just have to look for them.
Some astute readers have picked up on my subtle dislike of Teddy Bears Dressed as Other Animals (TDBOA), and have found examples far and wide throughout their individual corners of Blogland. It is my hope that increased exposure to this perversion will help me to feel OK about it. From looking at these photos, however ... it's unlikely.
Miss Kendra sends this specimen. Not too bad; it's just a bear in clothing. Still not right, though. Animals don't need clothing, that's why they have fur.
Cupcake sends this disturbing image of Bears as Wizard of Oz. I will forever dream of the bear-as-tinman, thanks a freaking lot.
Fritz sends this deeply disturbing Bear as Skeleton, which I think is supposed to be a Halloween costume. The portrayal of a bear skeleton as identical to a human skeleton makes me question my roots and those of all of humanity.
This bears posting again, because it is just so very wrong. Quilting Girl's find, Bear as Lobster, is still #1 in my Book of TBDOA Horrors.
... and finally, while not a manifestation of TBDOA per se, this outrage. Just what the heck is going on?!?!?! Thanks to Cupcake for her quick thinking in bringing this to our attention.
Please keep your eyes peeled for further examples of TBDOA and send them to me ASAP!
Tits has alerted me to this ... "art" she saw at boingboing. It's teddy bears, inside out.
The culprit: Kent Rogowski.
I am not sure how I feel about this.
On the one hand, it is brilliant.
On the other hand, I have discovered a new level of horror within me, a bottomless fountain of horror that has lain heretofore undisturbed. Now, some secret, slimy thing has been woken from its sleep, and the water seethes and ripples. It will never lie quiet again, and I am forever changed.
Would you, too, throw a pebble into your deep well?
Let me help:

The reason for taking pictures will now be revealed. In the past, I may have mentioned a particular pet peeve of mine. See if you can guess what it might be, from looking at the following photos:
Bear as bee.
Bear as bunny.
Bear as devil.
Bear as ladybug.
Bear as vegetable.
Bear as f---ing candy corn!
Did you figure it out? Good. You are very astute. I hate bears dressed as other things. Why can't a bear just be a bear, dammit? Bears are cute in their own right; they don't need to dress up as other things. I won't rant about it much longer; I've already done so here. But I will continue to post evidence of this perversion as it is revealed to me. Proof that the world is going to hell. Teddy bear hell! Feel free to flood my inbox with photos of the sickness if you see it in your corner of the world. I'll use them next time I go off on this topic. In fact, I think I'll start a whole separate blog about it. That, and dolls that freak me out.
While I'm ranting, how about this: Why would anyone want to dress their little girl like this (below)? Check out these infant items, also at said famous baby store. Do people really want to tell the world that "My baby "R" a hooker?" I don't think so.
Armageddon is Nigh!
On my recent trip to New York City, I spotted something rather disturbing in a shop window. Ever on the lookout for signs of the Apocalypse, I snapped a few quick photos to document the demise of all that is good and whole in this world. I speak, of course, of the dressing of teddy bears as other animals. It seems, now, that the trend does not stop at teddy bears. Now, non-animals are subject to the same cruelty. Just what the f*** is a MonChhiChi?!?! It's not a hedgehog, not a monkey ... what the hell is it?!? Regardless of what it is, apparently it isn't enough just to be one; no ... it must also be dressed as a frog, a duck, or some other animal. What is happening to us? Don't stare for too long at the pictures. If you can, make a pinhole camera for viewing.
Directions for making pinhole camera.
Documented evidence of impending Apocalypse:
MCC being consumed by a frog (aka "The Miss Kendra")
MCC duckling, rabbit, puma.
Bears in winter gear at Eddie Bauer.
Not dressed fully in other animals' pelts, but still a fur-lined coat!
Still not good!
