Apologies to Andrew, I mistook the meaning within your comments. I was never a fan of watching Yogi Bear on tv. In Australia we don't have the type of bears you have in the USA.I suppose the "smarter than the average bear" comment needs to be checked against "number of picnic baskets procured through stealth".

Stewie, bears are famous for finding creative ways to steal food from humans, to the point where frustrated park rangers have theorized an intelligence overlap between the species. Andrew was making a joke that played off of that. It wasn't at your expense.

I know I shouldn't do this but that won't stop me.
It's not 'picknic' baskets.
It's 'pick-a-nic' baskets.
It saddens me that I caused you any distress at all.
My humblest apologies!
Andrew; I have replied to your pm.
This is all tongue in cheek right? Somebody please tell me we're not seriously apologizing over a cartoon from fifty years ago.
This forum is confusing to say the least.
I have spent time working with internationals, so I have experienced many things that I assumed would be no offense, but in context of another is highly offensive; for example, showing the bottom of your feet or a "come here" motion that in a certain country is used to summon a prostitute.
OK. I should have just stayed out of it but last night at one in the morning I guess I was feeling preachy.
