Three men came back from fishing one day, but when they got back to their truck, they saw it was surrounded by three bears. Paul said, "OK, guys, I figure the only way we're gonna get back to the truck is to make these bears really angry. Then they'll leave and we can go home. Ed, you take that one on the left, the little cub with a broken leg. I'll take the one in the middle, the little cub with one eye and a hurt paw. Joe, you take the one on the right, the mama bear."

Joe looked and saw a huge silvertip grizzly bear with big teeth and froth around her mouth. "Hey, man, wait a sec. I'm supposed to get this monster angry, and you guys get the cubs. That's not fair!"

"Now, now, Joe," Paul replied, "We all have our bears to cross."
