"More Bear" from CaptainVertigo Contract pics
Picture: More Bear (Contract pics)

Part Two
Having dispatched the invertebrate, Bear then turned his hunger on a dead sheep which was inconveniently laid to rest in the epicentre of bottomless Irish bog. Stripping to his nuptials, almost, Bear jumped into the bog up to his nipples. He just about managed to grab the ovine carcass and then rocked forwards and backwards in a struggle to extricate himself from the treacle. My hapless spouse entered the room at this moment and mistook the gyrations for bestiality and exclaimed: “I thought you were giving that up for Lent”. Sheepishly, I pointed out that I was in survival mode and not to be disturbed. Grills proceeded to skin the beast before turning its coat inside out and sleeping inside it. Being Ireland his discomfort was intensified by the deluge that ensued. A highlight of the next day involved Bear abseiling down a rocky ridge using frayed old ropes pointing out that certain death awaited him if it snapped. Twas not long before he spied a lake. Wrapping his clothes in the sheepskin sack he swam across the lake instead of walking around it! At which stage a road appeared and the program ended. Not once did the camera ever pan widely enough to permit the viewer to geuss where this aboriginal wasteland might be located. No doubt this narrow focus was to avoid the inevitable wilderness-shattering phenomena such as houses, pubs, churches, adventure centres and the like. More of this codology will be broadcast next Tuesday and thereafter on a weekly basis. My hope is that someone will identify the locus and inform us.
