Polar Bear
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:18:11 pm »
A young polar bear and his dad were walking across a glacier. The son looks at the dad and says "Dad? Are we pure polar bear?" and the dad replies, "Yup son, we are."

They keep walking and the son says, "are you sure there's no other bear on your side? Grizzly maybe?" "Nope son, we are pure polar bear."

A few minutes later the son says "Maybe mom's side? Black or brown bear there?" And the dad gets frustrated. "NO son! We are pure polar bear through and through! No other bear!

WHY do you keep asking me this??" and the son says quietly..."because I'm cold."
Best wishes,

Duncan

If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†

One little bear with independent thinking.
