That’s One Small Step For A Polar Bear Cub…

To put a positive spin on that pesky Polar Vortex thing that’s been hasslin’ a good part of the US, (gasp, I sound like Sarah Palin, sorry) we bring you this Polar Bear Dude that’s just now taking his first steps after a November birth. (Make sure your speaks are up for the Polar Bear Squonking* Noises.)

This one’s for you, Knut buddy.

(*A squonk is kinda like a honk, but not exactly. Is that a word? Don’t think so! New term!!)

It’s so cold, even polar bears can’t handle the polar vortex! Multiple news sources reporting from zoos across the country that polar bears are curling up and staying inside with their snuggie and a cup of cocoa in front of the fire !
