May 8, 2009: Grizzly Chair
Unlike the Resolute Desk, some gifts to the Presidents of the United States thankfully stay in storage... or something.

This may be the reason why gift giving in DC is so monitored these days . . .

Lincoln's successor, they tried to impeach him for continuing Lincoln's policies.

You know, ole Seth had to shoot seven bears until he had all the perfect components for that furniture. Folks would see him out hunting, and hear him muttering:

I wouldn't be in the slightest bit concerned at seeing a leather chair. I wonder why this bothers me so much more?
DanaC Friday May 8 07:31 AM
Yeah...a leather chair might nt faze you....but a Frisian chair might, no?

Baby bear: "Someone's been sitting in MY chair!"

I think there's just something about fur.
Oh, and it looks like it smells

"But wait, the chair on the right has a big old Grizzly head sticking out?"
I'm sure he stood back and looked at it and mused "Hmmm, four feet and two arms, looks good but it needs something...."

Maybe it is the fact that this isn't just the skin, but the claws, and more importantly, the general structure of the bear, that you can see. It isn't a chair covered in animal skin, it's an animal that has been made into a chair.
Perhaps it is that it looks like a really weird, headless, six-legged animal with big claws.
Matter of fact, I think it looks like it's about to walk off. I'm sure Seth would club it some if it tried to.
I find it has a strange attractiveness. It makes some kind of wild-man throne. I kind of want to sit in it, but I'd feel bad for the bears involved.

They should have left the head, so we knew who the bear was:
xoxoxoBruce Friday May 8 11:34 AM
That wouldn't happen in this day and age.

My bear can see Russia from my house, well he could if'n I hadn't shot him.
TheMercenary Friday May 8 01:01 PM
