‘Wisps of Hope’


There’s a little charity competition thing going at work at the moment, where customers can pay £1 to ‘name the bear‘, and the best name entry gets to keep it.

Anyway, I was having a peer through all the entries today, and some absolute ass hat has entered the name Serendipity.

For a teddy bear. Serendipity.

Oh, aren’t you so quaint and thoughtful? How about ‘Whimsy‘, or ‘A Dream, Perchance‘, or ‘Autumn Smile‘, or ‘Flecks of Memory‘, or ‘I Went to The Park Today, and An Old Man Whispered Soft Things to me Before He Passed Away in My Arms‘.

  1. When I first read the headline, I thought you were forlornly trying to cultivate a moustache…ah well.
    That bear needs a mans name. My entry: SHITHAMMER tagline; cuddly? my ass!

  2. It’s a bear for Godsake, what do you expect people to write!
    (and I can’t believe you work at a place that names teddy bears – must be excruciating for you)

  3. p.s. two votes for Shithammer.

    • The teddy-naming isn’t a regular function of the shop, fortunately! It’s just a sad, little novelty charity thing.

      And I think ‘Shithammer’ is a shoe-in for this prize.

  4. I don’t know who’s cuter, you or the bear. hahaha!

  5. You had me at ‘ass hat’. :’)
