Bijou’s Odyssey-Not Quite There Yet

Wednesday’s Child (Aww how cute)

Filed under: Uncategorized — bijousodyssey @ 8:08 pm


Meet our newest famed child sans family: Knut

Awww, you say, how adorable. Well in case you have not heard the controversy which stemmed from Berlin a few weeks back, Knut has caused quite a stir over here, gracing the cover of every newspaper. Like myself, Knut was abandoned at birth by his polar bear mom. Yup, that’s right, the poor little bastard was left to fend for himself in the wild (the Berliner Zoo). I guess living in the confines of a zoo f’d up Knut’s Polar B-Mom pretty bad. And after all those infertility treatments she just wanted nothing to do with it anymore.

Anyhow, the kicker is that animal rights activists have called for Knut to be euthanized. Since Knut has been quasi-adopted by humans, i.e. bottle fed, the claim is that this is truly unnatural and Knut will never adjust. (As if living in a zoo is natural). Sound familiar? Feel you relate, well then you must be adopted.

Fortunately for Knut, the little bastard is pretty darn cute, so he gets to live- albeit as an adoptee, that we can eww and aww at and watch him entertain us by doing cute baby polar bear things. Until, of course, Knut, grows up and gets angry, real angry and his polar bear genes kick in– to partially quote Mr. T “I pity the Fool” who then messes with Knut.



  1. How, Freaking, Adorable is he!!!! Poor little Knut… sacrificed to a life of adoption and not fitting in… oh how I feel for his adorable little polar bearness. Its unnatural, and what kills me is, what part of adoption is natural? I mean come on!

  2. You are very funny. Knut is extremely cute, thank goodness he is going to live. It’s hard to imagine it was animal rights folk who wanted him euthanized. I hope his polar bear mind will not be able to comprehend what has happened to him as he gets older, but I bet he knew he missed his mama when he was first abandoned.
