Holy shit, the Berenstain Bears aren’t Jewish!

August 12, 2010

Apparently I never knew the correct spelling of the Berenstain Bears.  I always thought it was “stein.”  My family always pronounced it “stein,” not “stain.”

It comes as something of a shock now to find out that those bears were gentiles.

I guess it makes sense.  I don’t know any Jews who make all their own furniture.  Things didn’t end very well for the last famous Jewish carpenter.

    True. My favorite part of Passion of the Christ (I feel terrible for even admitting I’ve seen it) is when Jesus invents the chair.

    That is a fucking miracle.

    dude, when I first read the title, I definitely thought it was a typo. And I really felt a kinship with those bears.

    “STAIN”? I had no fucking idea. My world is turned upside down!
