Bears, Beans and Beer
Published on Thursday, January 22, 2015 by

Today’s subject for the writing challenge is “Bears, Beans and Beer.” I can’t wait to see what everyone wrote!

helium balloonsIf a bear ate beans and drank beer, he would probably look for a porta-potty. And if he used the porta- potty, he might feel the need to wash his hands. If he washes his hands, he might begin to play with the soap bubbles. And if he plays with the soap bubbles he might want to go to the store and buy some balloons. If he purchases a cluster of helium balloons he might find children surrounding him.

Alternate Ending 1: And if the bear finds children surrounding him, he might get down on his knee and give them a soft, warm bear hug. Thus, bears, beans and beer result in wonderful furry hugs.

Alternate Ending 2: And if a bear finds children surrounding him, he might get down on his knee and eat every single one of them, sucking the marrow from their bones when he is done. Thus, bears, beans and beer do NOT result in a happy ending. Except for the bear.

Your choice?

    Bwhahahhahahahahaha! Katherine, this was BEYOND brilliant! OMG…you are so CLEVER!

    And personally, I like Alternate Ending #2 because I’m not always into stories with happy endings.

    Well done, my friend!

    • Yea I kinda like that one too. After all, look at Grimm’s Fairy Tales!!!!!!! ha ha!

  • How fun and you did an excellent job with the prompts.

    I go for the happy ending too.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    • The happy ending came first in my head… nothing is better than fuzzy snuggles!

  • Hmmm…

    I think the first ending makes you all warm and fuzzy inside.

    The second ending is probably more likely, thus becoming a best-selling book and movie. 🙂

    • Ha ha yup.. and sadly it has happened before! At least to adults! No children were harmed in this writing. 🙂

  • I vote for ending #1, no bears or children are harmed, hugs are handed out and everyone is happy. A nice, light-hearted take on the prompt (except for ending #2, and that was good for the bear.)

    • But now I’m thinking… aren’t bears vegetarians? Well … they eat fish… hmmmm….

    Interesting, considering in your comment on my blog, you mentioned something about bears not showering. Unfortunately, I’ve accidentally deleted your comment over there. It would please me immensely if you repost your comment over there.

  • I wouldn’t want to tangle with a black bear.
