GRIN AND BEAR IT

Nagim Tudeth, email

A MAN goes on a camping trip with his wife and mother-in-law. One evening, the wife awakens to find her mother gone. Frantic, she shakes her husband awake and tells him they have to go look for her.

So the man grabs his rifle and they both head into the forest. Before long, they catch sight of the mother-in-law, backed up against a large tree, trying to fend off a ferocious and very hungry-looking bear.

“What are we going to do?” the wife cries.

“Nothing,” the man shrugs. “The bear got himself into this mess, he can get himself out of it.”
