Stan Berenstain Eulogy

As you may have heard, the co-creator of the Berenstain Bears, Stan Berenstain, died earlier this week. My friend and local comedian Andy Nolan has long been known in the local comedy community for writing great headlines and eulogies when celebrities die (When the pope died, he wrote a Prince parody which ended, “I only want to see you breathing…in the Papal Reign”). So here’s the one he did when Berenstain died.
His wife did the words,
And he did illustration,
Now Papa Bear’s gone into
Permanent hibernation.

His bears were not bare.
They were clothes wearers.
Now they serve at his funeral
As his pall bearers.
