Behold The Alaskan Hope Bear
We have finally solved a great mystery here at Wonkette International Headquarters! We kept seeing these insane commercials on the teevee, with Beyoncé encouraging us to upgrade to digital cable while she writhed around in golden garbs and held a menacing trinket in her teeth reading "UPGRADE." Since when, we asked, did Beyoncé care about anything as prosaic astechnology? It turns out this digital cable commercial is just a rehash of an actual song about materialistic things, which we would have known if we ever hung out with youngsters.
Anyway! Somebody sent us a link to this funny Hope Bear photo on Barack Obama's Flickr account. It, too, is holding something in its teeth, the end. [Barack Obama's Flickr page]
