I’ve been following the continued exploits of the black bear who’s been showing up at all of Prince Charles’ appearances in the Caribbean lately, to help remind the Brits that the Queen’s Guard’s regiments should make their hats out of, well, something that’s not bears. Shenanigans have been unfolding on the trip with a good degree of regularity, and the reports from the bear and her companion, Melissa, make for excellent reading. Here’s an example from last week:
Subject: Report from Montego Bay, 3-13 - PETA bear crashes royal party!
Today we drove 4 hours to Montego Bay where we’d arranged for a boat to take us as close as possible to The Prince’s yacht, The Leander. When we arrived security was familiarly tight so, we asked around and discovered C&C were having a party at the same resort, right near the beach where we’d board.
Here’s a photo near The Leander.
Then we headed back to the resort JUST in time for the party but we had to be subtle so, the bear laid down in the boat as we approached:
We disembarked just steps from the royals’ reception:
And were greeted by some of the children there to perform and greet the royals:
And then we just walked in…
We mingled with a few guests.
More of the children, of course.
And even British members of the press who refused to take photos of us. So, we took photos of them.
Then we were spotted by one of Charles’s chief security officers. We know him. He knows us. :)
These people seem not to like bears seeing as they kill them and kick them out of parties.
We were escorted off premises.
And we were interrogated for a long while.
Because we’d reserved the boat ahead of time and paid the resort, threats of being charged with trespassing didn’t stick. Tomorrow we return to Kingston, home of Bob Marley.
According to the British music magazine NME, Irish sperm donors are in short supply and one enterprising sperm bank has come up with an incentive scheme in time for St. Patrick’s Day (donations in exchange for contest tickets).
“Sperm donors are to be offered free tickets to any music festival in Europe under a new initiative. Irish stocks are apparently dwindling, with demand far higher than is sustainable, and donations down by 40% over the last four years.”
Always ready to help (and mindful of how good fruit and veggies prove in fertility studies), PETA is offering a special St. Patrick’s Day T-shirt to help remind anyone with a touch of the Blarney that drinking milk can lower their sperm count. I defy anyone to choose a pint of milk over a pint of Guinness after looking at this particular masterpiece.
Anyway, good luck lads, and happy, um, donating.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
