Polar Bear’s Snow Addiction Is ‘Out of Control’
In what is an all too familiar tale, celebrity polar bear cub Siku has fallen victim to the scourge of addiction. His substance of choice? Snow.
“The pressures of being a celebrity are just too much to, uh, bear for many young polar bear cubs. Sadly, they often turn to substance abuse,” explained certified bearologist Toby Park. “Snow is readily accessible where Siku lives.”
According to sources close to the situation, Siku plays in the snow almost every day.
“The stuff is basically free here,” said one insider who wished to remain anonymous. “And Siku has money, so he’s buying the white stuff by the pound. He’s out of control.”
On a serious note, it’s International Polar Bear Day! Celebrate by taking part in the “Thermostat Challenge,” and adjusting your thermostat up or down a few degrees (depending on where in the world you live) in an effort to lower carbon emissions and help save polar bears.
