Ted E. Bear Considers Libel Suit Against Producers of Film “Bearing” His Name!
News of the nature of the main character in the newly released film, “Ted,” has upset the sophisticated bon vivant and transcontinental traveler Ted E. Bear. Mr. Bear is a welcomed guest at America’s finest pet welcoming hotels from coast-to-coast and has attracted much attention during his multiple transcontinental driving trips.
Ted E. Bear visited the fashionable and glamorously grand Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee on his most recent transcontinental journey. When interviewed in the hotel’s chateau-like lobby area, Mr. Bear talked about the importance of good behavior and proper decorum while traveling explaining, “You never know who is watching you and these days, with everyone carrying a camera built into a cell phone, it’s important to put your best paw forward.”
Ted E. Bear’s philosophy of life, debonair character and suave approach to living was built on his love of film characters portrayed by actors such as Rock Hudson, David Niven, Gene Kelly and Cary Grant. “I’ve always seen myself as the star of my own life, “Ted explains, “and I’ve always conducted myself with great dignity. That’s why hotels as classy as The Pfister treat me royally during my visits and call to find out when I’ll visit again. I’m concerned that people may not read beyond the headlines and will confuse me with that ill-bred, ill-behaved fellow in that new movie! When I heard about that film, I knew I needed to get my attorneys involved. While my roommate has a Black Belt and I know I can call upon him to defend my honor, I decided to use the power of my paw and press the numbers on the phone to call my lawyer. This Ted is not me and I wouldn’t want people, particularly hoteliers, to think I’ve lost my last kibbles! Joe Kurth, the General Manager at the Pfister Hotel has told me I’m the prime example of a ‘beary welcomed guest.’ He thinks he’s funny! But he’s right! I’ve made the name ‘Ted E. Bear’ mean something very respected. I can’t say the same for that fuzzy fellow in that movie. He needs to get off of my name,” Mr. Bear concludes.
