This is not Yogi bear, by the way

One of the world's best known bears, Yogi has been accused of lying, following an IQ test.

Yogi, famed for his catchphrase, 'Smarter than the Average Bear' has been proven to be nothing of the sort. Indeed, his IQ reading is thought to be 4 points less than the average bear of a similar age and social standing.

Mr Bear, famed for his habit of stealing Picnic Baskets from unsuspecting visitors to Yellowstone Park was said to be ashamed of his lie, and is now in training to take exams to prove his intelligence.

He spends time in the local library, and is studying advanced mathematics, and English literature. The one major flaw in his plan, is that he is a Bear, and is not allowed a Library Ticket, and he cannot actually read.

A small man last seen with Mr Bear has been missing for four days. It is believed that the two events may actually be linked.

In a related story, Boo Boo, Mr Bear's erstwhile side kick has been arrested for indecent exposure. The dapper bear wears a collar, but no trousers.

Make Ben Macnair's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
