You bought your tux for your prom ten years ago, planning to return it, but after Sally Johnson had too much of the punch at pre-prom and spilled an entire plate of lasagna on you, the shop refused to take it back.

This bear ain’t no “local bear”—this bear owns a trendy coffee shop in Brooklyn and his dad works at Morgan Bearly.
