A polar bear is sitting in the chair of a furious, frustrated mouse. “He is so big it’s hard to share. There isn’t any room to spare. We do not make a happy pair, a mouse and bear with just one chair.” The polar bear reads a newspaper, styles his hair, wears an Elvis costume while the mouse continues to rant and rave, “I understand that bears are rare. I know they need the utmost care. I know all that. I am aware. But still, I cannot stand this bear.” In a reversal of fortune, the bear goes home to find there is the mouse in his house.
