That bear corpse is a sight for sore eyes
I bet the bear didn’t see it coming.
I think we all got the point of that pun.
Yeah, but we’re going to stick at it regardless. Maybe this conversation should branch off in other directions?
i wouldnt bear to see another pun
Wow, talk about tunnel vision.
No berserking. A good sign. *Crosses fingers*
But that hardly means a thing. He’s bearly broken a sweat.
But he’s all dired out.
Honey! Its bear for dinner tonight.
Wow, Byron. Way to branch out and stick it to him.
From that day on, he developed a deep-rooted distaste for bears
Hopefully, the other… things with leaf him alone.
Wood they? They might tree that he’s violent and get even more aggressive.
All he got was a stick-a-nic basket. Poor bear.
I doubt they’ll twig to his aggressive ways.
Byron might get stumped with that one.
And the bear has a deep-rooted distaste for roots.
No time for dinner, they’ve bearly started the honey-do list.
I’m kinda pissed he killed it, the Dire Bear’s bark is worse than its bite.
A reading from the Book of Matthew, chapter 7, verses 3-5; Matthew addresses the dire bears.
3 Why do you look at the dire honey that is in your berserker’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your berserker, ‘Let me take the dire honey out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the dire honey out of your berserker’s eye.
Damn, that’s the quote that came to my mind too. Nice paraphrasing.
…You’ll poke an eye out
This is a dire situation. No need to poke fun at it.
The Dire Bear’s mother always regretted naming him Haikid.
It’s really a pity that puns on berserk are redundant.
At least the bear puns will stop. They were getting to be an Ursa Major pain.
No need to get mad about it.
She gonna lick that honey off his face. I hope.
Do not, under any circumstances, eat the mind honey.
If you do, it may have DIRE CONSEQUENCES for all of paradox space.
You have been warned.
Little do they know that the key ingredient in ensuring that he stays unbeserked is having Dire Honey smeared al over him…
Honey, I’m hoooooome!
This was hard to look at.
Screw hungry, think what she’d do with a dire bear fur coat!
He Elves for the Ethical Treatment of Animals would have a fit.
Hope you’re *hungry*?
Did you learn NOTHING from the book Prince Caspian?
“Bear that has lived too much on other animals is not very nice, but bear that has had plenty of honey and fruit is excellent, and this turned out to be that sort of bear.”
I don’t think a DIRE BEAR is the kind of bear that’s HONEY AND FRUITS.
The bear just wanted some honey, to sweeten its disposition. On the upside, Byron isn’t sweatin’ his pissed possession.
Requesting a print version of the final panel <3
Well…now we see if Syr feels that this was a conclusive test.
Also a perfect spot in the story for unsolicited fan-fic extensions of this scene! :P
Whelp. Time to make him fight something heavier.
SUMMON THE DIRE GIRAFFEAPOTAMUS
That, I would love to see!
This proves it. Got a problem? Fire elementals? Berserker boyfriend?
You can always do science to it.
The alt-text pun is horrific.
I would have gone with “grizzly”.
Polarizing or Pandaring?
You’re all monsters.
I love the movie fight scene logic here. Axes only make it angy, but a sharp stick while it’s lunging always works.
Axes to the ARM make it angry, entire branches jammed STRAIGHT THROUGH THE EYES INTO THE BRAIN do tend to work, whether it’s lunging or not.
Sorry, through the eye, into the brain, and OUT THE OTHER SIDE, now that I look at it again.
That bear must’ve had a soft spot for Byron’s branch-tics.
Realistically speaking though, even in fantasy…what in the heck kinda wood is capable of penetrating a skull bone?
The kind you get in that frekking forest.
It’s hardly impossible for wood to go through bone with sufficient force applied. Bone is tougher and there’d certainly be splintering but if you’re driving a piece of wood lengthwise against a parallel object with great force it’s hardly weird that it’d give. As an EMT I’ve personally encountered someone who died by having their head impaled on a fence post and another case where their head was penetrated by a tree branch.
So, yeah, don’t drive in wind storms.
Sorry, I meant perpendicular. Shift work makes me stupid.
I know that the physics of it works and that the brain is located behind the eye, but axes into shoulders generally make arms not work.
All of our avatars make us seem way more worked up about this than we are…I just love that when fighting an animal, a sharp stick braced against the ground is the best defense. Like in Neverending Story.
I have to avoid the comments sometimes just so I don’t go spouting the puns randomly to confused strangers.
Oh God he Bearly did it!
and here i was thinking zhe BERSERKER would show his angry face : /
(Sooo many Bear puns -_o)
The bear fell right for that honeytrap
Well, now we know the last thing that went through the bear’s mind.
My first thought when I saw this strip was ‘Take Drugs, Kill a Bear’.
Those axe blades on the shoulders finally came in handy.
Awwwww..! How come nobody said “bearserker?!?” It’s a direliciously sweet two-for-pun opportunity!
Was thinking that myself, until I realized he couldn’t go bearzerk ever again because he killed it.
“We called it a dire bear because ur-ursa sounds stupid.”
That middle pannel just made me go “ew.” Violence around eyes is always extra hideous for me.
I know how you feel Twigs, that and to use acid as an weapon is just… It’s just plain wrong!
