He sure does

I saw this T-Shirt in a shop today and thought of our beloved Marshall Bear.

It occurred to me after I posted this that you might not get the joke. It's a play on the name of a British adventurer Bear Grylls, who according to his Wikipedia page was born in Donaghadee which is the next town over from where I live. Don't know if you've heard of that guy or not.

It made me chuckle so thought it would you too. Glad you like it.

Sort of. But not enough to have gotten the play on words right away.

In any case, I am awesome on the grill!

I looked at the Wikipedia page... "Bear's Wild Weekend" sounded like it could be interesting.

...whose real name is Edward, shortened to Teddy, hence Bear.
