Paddington gets deported

Thought I'd post this as well, in case anyone has not read about the new upcoming Paddington book. At first I thought it was a spoof, but have read about it in at least 3 places now (Meghan's nonfiction rule), so it must be true. Either way, its brilliant! Children should learn about the injustices of immigration and naturalization! Kidding. Sort of.

Check it out here.

NO!!! Who's next? "Winnie"? In real life he was a Canadian Bear, immigrated to the UK, then snuck into the US under the guise of a "bear of very little brain". Home land security is gonna have a devil of a time with this one!

Well we can't just let bears in the country willy nilly, they might take our jobs.

Now we can read about it in four places. It must be super true.
