I am on an e-mail list for the Discovery Channel and so I get e-mails frequently for programs and specials in the Discovery Channel line-up.
Today, I got one with a subject line that made me think there are plenty of men in our community who will be glued to their televisions this weekend. It said: “Saturday: All Bear, All Day.”
Of course, I was pretty sure from the beginning it wasn’t actually a full day of programs about large, hirsute men. But when I clicked on the link, I discovered it wasn’t even about large, hirsute animals that sleep all winter.
Apparently, the nickname of the host for Discovery Channel’s “Man vs. Wild” is Bear, and the e-mail is promoting a day-long marathon of that program.
Oh well, too bad for the bear lovers (of all types), but I guess it’s good news for those who like that program.
