So a bear walks into a grocery store ...

Stop me if you’ve heard this one.

A 125-pound black bear wanders into a Wisconsin grocery store and heads straight for the beer:

The bear stopped Friday night at Marketplace Foods in Hayward, about 140 miles northeast of Minneapolis, sauntering through the automatic doors and heading straight for the liquor department.

It calmly climbed up 12 feet onto a shelf in the beer cooler where it sat for about an hour while employees helped evacuate customers and summoned wildlife officials.

If the bear was tipsy, it wasn’t because he was drunk. Store workers told the AP the bear was a teetotaler but that wildlife officials tranquilized him before being getting him of the cooler. Good thing. He might have been a belligerent drunk.

No religion angle in this AP dispatch, but I just couldn’t resist.
