A dancing street sweeper who moves like Michael Jackson has become an internet cult hero. The bin man spins, slides and twirls his litter stick as he collects rubbish in Chiswick, London stopping passers-by in their tracks. Thousands of people have watched YouTube clips of the self-styled ‘Ziggy Dust’ and residents have raved about him on online forums wondering who he is and what he listens to on his iPod.

This week is proving to be a busy week with the arrival today of another new Bear. This poor dude arrived in the post today with his arm sticking out of his parcel. Luckily no harm came to him or his arm, but he was a little traumatised by the journey. He is now relaxing and getting to know everyone.

The new Bear has arrived today from Reading. At first he was a little confused about all this picking a name thing. He didn’t even know what a name was let alone pick one for himself. After we explained the concept to him, he went through the list of suggested names for him from the blog from last week and he picked his favourite ones. Now he is stuck.

TV boxing legend Reg Gutteridge has died at the age of 84. He was the man who commentated on all the Muhammad Ali fights through the 1960’s and 1970’s. Although this is a sad loss for his family and boxing in this country it did, in a strange way, bring a little smile to the face of The Bears today. Not because they are sick and twisted but because they remember hearing the story of how he first met Muhammad Ali.

We’re in trouble because it turns out that we shouldn’t be letting The Bears watch Shameless as it is an 18 Certificate. The thing is were not sure if the 18 Certificate is just for humans or does it count for Bears too. Their website says “No-one younger than 18 may see an ‘18’ film in a cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an ‘18’ rated video. In line with the consistent findings of the BBFC’s public consultations, at ’18’ the BBFC’s guideline concerns will not normally override the wish that adults should be free to chose their own entertainment, within the law.”
