"He liked a cigarette, he liked a bottle of beer - he drank a bottle of beer like any man."
The idea of a fucking alcoholic Nazi-fighting bear is so awesome that youâ€™d think it was something out of a bizarre cartoon or a Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie. Itâ€™s the sort of shit that, even with all of the historical evidence, seems too totally awesome to be true. The bear was a hero of World War II, and there are statues of him and plaques memorializing his brave service in Poland, Edinburgh, the Imperial War Museum in London, and the Canadian War Museum. Unbelieveable.
