    1. I see what you mean. When I post these cartoons elsewhere they don't have the Blogger title, so I'm usually letting the caption do the explaining. But in this case the Illustration Friday word gave the gag away early.

  2. We all know the dangers of escalators. Who knew getting lost escalates the danger!

  3. Oh Oh Oh, and they were to fall into place unless indicated!!!!
    I'm seeing, the two heads on the wall above the fireplace of someone.
    I have a doubt, these bears are a couple of bears with many years of marriage? ;)

    1. Ha ha.. yes, like when an old couple is going somewhere in their car and you're not really sure who's driving. They're both giving directions.

  5. Haha, yeah, I love this and I also agree with the first comment in that this would work without the text balloon and just the title alone. However, I feel the text balloon only pluses this because of the fact that they got lost from the FOREST and somehow wounded up inside a shopping mall! You would think that they'd start to double back by the time they'd hit the parking lot, but nope! haha

    1. Thanks, Maurecio. As I said to Tek, the title is only there for Blogger, but wouldn't be there if I posted the gag elsewhere.

      I love that you got that they somehow wound up inside the mall, and you got it right down to the details. That's the ultimate high for a cartoonist who's still learning the ropes. You made my day.

  6. Lost in the mall... that is indeed a dire fate! Turn back while you still can, bears! It is possible to run up a down escalator. Don't ask me how I know.

    Love the facial expressions!

    Cheers,

    1. I think it might be like Curious Leah said, they ran back up the down escalator. Hopefully they ended up in the Garden Canter, with shrubs to hide in.

    2. I meant 'Center', not Canter. I don't believe the bears are Irish.

  8. Hehehe. I like the "wife" bear, complaining just like a wife. Hahahah! Poor guy, he will never hear the last of it, that is if they can even make it out of there. I just read Leah's comment and that is true. I have even done that from the bottom of the down escalator!!! Anything is possible if you are a mother of a daring little boy (Even ran the entire length of Atlanta Hartsfield Airport running alongside the shuttle train!!!)

    Manhole covers are round so it will roll instead of bounce all over the place when accidentally displaced AND this one is most important: it will not fall into the hole at any angle. :) Now you know.

    Have a great week.

    1. The kid jumped on the train without you? And you chased it the length of an airport? Sounds like an old Buster Keaton movie.

      They want those big heavy things to roll away? -but the round cover not being able to fall through the hole makes total sense. Especially if you're below it on the ladder.

    2. YES! Oh my God. He did and I had to carry his little sister while running while my husband carried our luggage. The train got on the first stop before we did and I saw my son standing waiting for us. I cried when I saw him and was so beside myself I did not realize that there were a group of people standing with him. They were in the train when my son got in and saw me frantically mouthing instructions to my son to get off the first stop. They were so kind to wait with him. Oh my God, to this day I still see the faces of those people, I forgot to thank them because I was emotionally spent and just wanted to hug my son and thank my daughter for running with us because I could not carry her all the way. She was only 3! My son was 6.

      Yes, they need it to roll because when it gets dislodged, a square or rectangular one will tumble all over the place and the sharp angles will cause more injury.

  9. Hahaha! Great one!

    Also, of course it's the mall! And one more thing, this might not be the most popular opinion, depending on your audience, but in *my* happy ending, the bears eat the hunters (and then steal their truck and drive back to the forest).

  10. I love this extreme humor! You looked at the situation, flipped it and came up with a funny idea! I've been in the wilderness on the opposite side of this story, where the bear was in the advantage. There guts gotta be feeling the way I felt on their turf. Fuuuuny!

  11. Haha, this is hilarious, and well done!! What's cracking me up the most is the guy's face behind the gun rack.

  12. Hehehehehehehe! Gah, and wouldn't you know it. He left his wallet in his other fur. Darn.

    I have a feeling those two guys are toast.

    P.S. Manhole covers are round because manholes are round.

    1. Which begs the question... which came first; the manhole or the manhole cover??

  13. I hope for their sake - and the safety of the mall shoppers in general - that those weapons aren't loaded!!!! Too funny! I just love their expressions! Especially the stealthy guy behind the wall!

  16. Oops. Bad news for bears. They are showing up everywhere else these days...so why not? Although it is rather disturbing that they are in a gun store big enough to have an escalator :-O
    Hilarious...as usual.

  17. Hahahaha.. When I actually saw this without the title.. I was thinking about a bear couple that are in the middle of 'Amazing Race' show :) Very funny, sir!
