Famous for being a couple of happy go lucky cartoon bears, Yogi and Boo Boo had been wrapping up a short Autumn vacation to the wilds of Alaska to fatten up before Winter hibernation, but almost fell victim to a Sarah Palin helicopter hunting expedition.
The Bears reportedly travelled to Alaska after receiving a tip from Ranger Smith that the small town of Wasilla would be an excellent place to load up on pic-a-nic baskets before the snow arrived. The celebrity bears were actually spotted two days later by residents on the outskirts of Wasilla rooting through trash heaps at the local dump with other bears. That's when the Palin family reportedly set out on another one of Sarah's famous helicopter hunting expeditions.
"We were minding our own business, looking for perhaps an apple pie that was in need of a new home, but we think our Ranger back home gave us some bad information", said Yogi. "Righty Doody Yogi", replied Boo Boo. The Bears were forced to find leftover dinner scraps at the dump once they discovered that picnic baskets weren't easily available as advertised. "It wasn't anything like a nice Pastrami on rye with a touch of stone ground mustard, but Boo Boo and I did find a chunk of meatloaf". Said Yogi. "With a catsup glaze", said Boo Boo.
The dinner bell was interrupted the following evening at dusk by the sound of a helicopter rotor and rifle fire. Yogi and Boo Boo managed to high tail it to the shelter of a nearby wooded area while the helicopter circled for a few minutes with the Palin reality show TV crew in tow. Yogi and Boo Boo reportedly headed back south to Jellystone National park the next morning.
"We've had enough of TV", said Yogi, "And I have a few questions for my friend Ranger Smith back home too, yeah-aye-aye-ee. I'm sure he won't mind Boo Boo and I taking a dump in his fresh water well". Boo Boo added, "And I've been eating rotten cabbage, Yogi".
