Lilliputian Bear?

Little bear likes to read books (small books, mind you)... and he has heard about Gulliver's Travels. Now there's a guy who had ADVENTURES! But little bear never really thought that anything like that could happen to him. Nope... little bear thought Gulliver's Travels and the land of Lilliput was just a figment of someone's imagination. So today, he was sauntering along, minding his own business, as only a little bear can do...
But... unbeknownst to little bear, lurking around the corner, were a band of Lilliputian Cowboys... out to hunt down a towering bear. You would think they would recognize that little bear is... well... little... but it's all relative...
And these cowboys came armed for bear... in a manner of speaking. They didn't have any firearms per se... having lost them over the years... but they did have a spool of black thread... er... rope... and they knew what they needed to do...
With a wild "yahoo!"... the cowboys rounded the corner and completely startled little bear who could barely (bearly?) grasp what was happening to him. They circled around him with their thread... er.... rope and...
all little bear could do was stand there, slightly aghast and before you knew it... little bear lost his balance and.... boom... he was whipped onto his bum....
It didn't take the cowboys long before they had him in a true pickle... tied down to the carpet and little bear couldn't move a muscle...
The cowboys whooped and hollered... and even sat on top of little bear and gloated a bit... They had caught a giant of a bear... or so they thought! They were even talking about entering their capture into the Guinness Book of World Records...
But then after an eyeball to eyeball conversation... they learned that little bear was actually quite a, well... little bear... and that they weren't going to win any records or awards (or firearms for that matter) by capturing him with a spool of thread... er... rope. Ah well... it was worth a shot. The cowboys took it in good stride and released little bear from his bondage.
Although it did take a while, because they had used quite a bit of thr... rope... to tie him down! But after it was all undone... they sat down for a group photograph, just to show there were no hurt feelings...
It was all just a big misunderstanding... and little bear is just glad that it was happily resolved... and that this adventure wasn't a "dangerous" adventure!

  1. What a great adventure, and we're glad everything worked out ok. We don't have little cowboy toys, but when we're gardening, the butterflies and bees are always curious to know what we're doing.
