What a way to go. CNN came up with this gem this morning:

Dateline Bishkek, Russia: A man was attacked and killed Thursday by a bear on ice skates. The murderous animal was part of a performing circus troupe called “Bears on Ice.”

Scratch that. Apparently, the bear REALLY didn’t like skating.

There are certain aspects of Russian culture that I freely admit I just don’t understand. Like the entire concept of “Bears on Ice.”

According to CNN, 

“Russia has a long-standing tradition of training bears to perform tricks such as riding motorcycles, ice skating, and playing hockey.”

WTF?!?
