So this guy walks into a bar, sits down on one of the stools and orders a beer. As the bartender walks away, a bear walks up to the stool next to him and says "Hey, mind if I sit here?"

The guy turns and looks at the bear for a few seconds, then looks around the bar as if trying to figure out what kind of joke this is.

"I take that as a no then," says the bear and sits down on the stool next to the guy. The bear raises a paw at the bartender to get his attention and orders himself a beer.

"You're a bear," says the guy, staring at the bear.

"How astute of you."

"Wha- what are you doing here?"

"Here, where? Here as in here in my place in the greater universe, or here as in sitting next to you in this bar?"

"Uh... you know, either one actually."

"Well, " said the bear as the bartender brings him a mug of frosty golden honey-weiss, "as for the latter, I am here to enjoy a cold frosty beer or two as my mood desires. As for the former, well, isn't that really the greater question that plagues us all?"

The bear takes a drink as the guy stares, mezmerized. The bartender is away doing bartender-y things. The bear smacks his lips.

"Oh, yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about. You've outdone yourself Giuseppe!" He turns to face the guy on the barstool and says "So what about you, my friend? What's your story? Why so glum, chum?"

The guy looks off into space for a bit, and says "Well, my girlfriend dumped me."

"Oooh, ouch."

"Yeah. Two years together. Man, this sucks."

"Ah my man, the ways of love are myriad and mysterious and quite often painful. Let me tell you a story."

And the bear began to tell a tale...
