… Except Real

I’ve already passed this along on Facebook, but it must also be redistributed via blog (Magrey de Vega, husband of the quick-witted Jessica T. de Vega, both my former students, called it to my attention in the first place). This is the Next Big Thing in digerati jokes, memes, and general merriment.
 
As I said on Facebook, “Keep watching — the fun doesn’t end with the first appearance of the cardboard bear.”
 

 
For the indefinite future, expect to hear internet-savvy humorists to say things such as, “This is what a national health policy looks like — except real.” Or, “This is what a politician with integrity looks like — except real.”

    Brilliant, AKMA. Now I’m thinking, “Where can I get a life-sized Jesus cut-out for Ascension Sunday?”

    Our favorite news stories are “loose bear” stories.
