Always seems that people only discard large stuffed bears on warm days

It's hot out

NYC is under a heat advisory today.

Per the Weather Channel: "Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place with air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members, neighbors and stuffed bears."

What will the art market bear for this?

[Photo by Derek Berg!]

This was the scene this morning on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue... where this [admittedly photogenic] giant teddy bear was spotted sprawled out on the sidewalk, empty cup and toilet paper not far from its outstretched paws.

Seeing as it was plopped right outside their door, the folks at the Shape of Lies decided to turn the bear into an art project...

Blockbusters: ('Alleged') 'Bearial Shroud' discovered on East Second Street

This, of course, was the somber scene on East Second Street between Avenue B and Avenue C last Sunday morning... Easter Sunday morning...

And now, there are claims, thus far unsubstantiated, on the very same fence, that ... well, see for yourself...

A neighbor, who asked not be named, said that archaeologists excavated the only known JoBear la Stuffing-era burial shroud in the East Village.

What's more, the remains of the bear wrapped in the shroud are said to hold DNA evidence of a picnic basket. Carbon-dating studies suggested the shroud was made between A.D. 2007 and 2009.

However, until researchers can conduct more, uh, research, the use of "alleged" will accompany the description to help temper expectations and prevent the block from becoming a tourist trap for various pilgrim types.
