Editor’s note: This is probably not the best day to start reading my blog, so if you’re new, I’m sorry. The wheels kind of came off the bus on this one.

I don’t even know where to start.

People are ridiculous. It’s probably an awesome ridiculous, though, because someone found my site by searching this:

Which is my new favorite sentence, because I’m pretty sure every situation gets better when you say “fuck your shit I’m in a bear suit.”

Like, the day you buy a bear suit.

Your first day of work.

Your last day of work, which will most likely be about 5 minutes after you show up dressed as a bear, because bear suits maybe aren’t business casual.

The day your girlfriend decides to break up with you, because you lost your job and you won’t take off your bear suit.

Even the day you realize most of your life has unraveled because you’re in a bear suit will definitely get a little better when you say:

You could be thinking: Kendall. This literally makes no sense.

To which I would respond: Skeptical reader, you might be right. I accidentally stabbed cut my finger earlier today while I was cooking, and I’ve been a little delirious with a combination of blood loss and the trauma of almost having to face the world without all of my digits. (Maybe the cut wasn’t that bad, but I seriously hope I never get stabbed to death because that shit was painful.)

But the surprising delight of “fuck your shit I’m in a bear suit” won’t seem so absurd when you’re unarmed and dressed as a bear during the zombie apocalypse.

Because being unarmed in a zombie apocalypse? That’s what would be really absurd. And anyway, who doesn’t look for a little comic relief just before their brains are devoured by zombies?

  1. Hahahaha! You’re right, that’s like the best phrase ever. I’d also like to point out some nice gems in that search: “camera steals soul” and “how long puffins are pregnant”.

    Good stuff Kendall!!!!

  2. Yasmin says:

    haha! Nearly wet my pants first thing in the morning at work laughing and reading this. Its the little things! 😉

  3. Perhaps zombies are afraid of bears. I’ve never heard anything about them devouring bear brains. This might work out to your advantage.

  4. I really need to work this sentence into a conversation today.
    Bear suits. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

  5. I’m with Princess Muffintop….I’m def going to try to work this into a conversation today. It’s that awesome.

  6. Breann says:

    Just about peed my pants at work reading this! AWESOME!

  7. Alexis says:

    Now I want a bear suit so I can casually drop this phrase in conversation.

    I fact I would TOTALLY get one, if it weren’t for my paralyzing fear of crabs. Because I g-u-a-r-a-n-t-e-e you’re going to catch a whopping case of crabs from a bear suit.

  8. crayon says:

    I would seriously buy a poster of this.

  9. jillsmo says:

    OH. MY GOD. I am crying.

    CRYING. And not because I’m afraid of the zombie apocalypse, because I’m totally not.

  10. JennyYarger says:

    OMG. Hilarious. I want a bear suit.

  11. Best bear costume – AND best zombies, ever.

  12. Misfit Mommy says:

    Can I order my bear suit here?

  13. Handflapper says:

    I’m pretty sure this is the best thing I’ll read all day. Possibly all week. Hell, probably all year.
    I would go out and buy a bear suit right this minute, but I’m also pretty sure I would die of heat exhaustion in this humid Arkansas spring. Damn, how do those bears do it?

  14. Lori says:

    You’re supposed to have a “good-bye forever” suitcase in your closet?

    WTF…can’t I do ANYTHING right?

  15. GrandeMocha says:

    Now I know what I want to be for Halloween! I’m not sure I have enough attitude to pull this off.

  16. FranceRants says:

    Sad Wine-o was the name for my new winery dammit. Now I got to think of something different.

  17. Alexandra says:




    You are just so damn good

    I am laughing out loud…the initials LOL just won’t even touch this.

    LAUGHING OUT LOUD. At so many parts.

    You genius you.

    Also: I have got to start saying “fuck your shit.”

    Love that.

  18. HeathRobots says:

    It does not get any better than this. Well maybe a zombie inside a bear suit on a boat with T-Pain. But I’m not sure my heart could handle it.

    I end my conversations with a college roommate by saying “Goodbye forever”, so the Goodby Forever suitcase is amazing. It’s the best way to dump a guy I’ve ever seen!

  19. Suniverse says:

    You know this is the second time today that the internet has encouraged me to buy an animal costume… I’m pretty sure I’m going to start paying attention if this carries on.
