As I sat contemplating the universe the other day I came to the conclusion that there is a remarkable similarity between the American Black Bear and the standard local councillor.
The black bear hibernates for seven and a half months each year. Councillors, about the same.
The Black Bear only wakes up when the Summer comes along. Councillors only wake up when an election comes along.
When the Black Bear does comes out of hibernation it’s usually with a few cute cubs that every one oohs and aahs about. Our councillors usually roll out some new project or candidate that they expect us to go gaga over.
Come winter the Black Bear forgets about it’s cubs and heads back for another seven and a half months of sleep. Our councillors – ditto.
All that remains is the evidence that bears really do crap in the woods and its best not to step in it. After the election our councillors disappear into hibernation leaving us with a bunch of crap to clear up.
Coincidence or what ???
