The first question that springs to mind is: what is that bear doing in town, window-shopping? Shouldn’t he be up at the North Pole, drinking Coca Cola with the penguins and the other bears? Is he with the guys? Are they even aware that there is an enormous bear behind them?
In any case, none of these three should be getting anywhere near tools of any kind.
The boy is eyeing that drill with an excess of glee that is most disturbing. The guy on the right wouldn’t know what to do with a drill (or any other tool) if he tripped over it. And from the look of him, that’s just a matter of time.
Finally, there’s the large, strange, gleeful polar bear. He’s definitely about to go in to Miller’s Tools with them. He’s looking pretty happy about the drill. And about the guys. Either he’s got a little home-improvement project up in the Arctic or he’s thinking about dinner.
I don’t like any of it one bit.
