Politically Incorrect Teddy Bears!

Today's post is brought to you by BUILD A BEAR!  YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!

Yes, build a bear.  Where you can take your child/loved one, and spend $100 on a stuffed teddy bear that can be dressed as:

  • A Fireman
  • A Nurse
  • An Astronaut
  • A Mormon Missionary
  • A --
Wait... WHAT?

Yes, you heard right.
Exclusively at the Salt Lake City build-a-bear, you can get a Mormon Missionary outfit for your stuffed animal.  This includes the signature white shirt and tie, some STUNNING shorts, a name badge, and the Book of Mormon.

No, folks, this is not a joke.

Officially licensed Build-a-Bear merchandise, folks.
Sadly, this is not on the b-a-b website, and it's hard to find on eBay.  Why only SLC?  Well, people were requesting it, and SLC is the Mormon hub of the world.  So there we go.

I wonder if you can make a Build-a-Pope-Bear in Vatican City?

Or maybe Build-a-Buddha-Bear in Asia?

I'm not sure.  If you know of any other religious teddies, please post below (Looking for Jerusalem Jew-Bears with a yarmulke and the Torah...)

As you've probably gathered from previous blog posts, I'm not LDS.  But I WANT ONE OF THESE!  Why?  I mean, c'mon.  A Mormon missionary teddy bear in the middle of Mormonville?  This is priceless.

Elder-Bear wants to talk to you about Joseph Smith!

Please Share it! :)

Wow, lol. if not for the Book of Mormon, i would have thought it was supposed to be someone who worked for TSA...or an airline pilot or something.

Jewels said...

Wow. Just wow. There is no end to what people will spend money on. I've been in there a lot with kids and to make those dumb ass bride/groom bears-there is no accounting for some people's taste-but had I seen that I probably would have walked out!

singedwingangel said...

lmbo ummm I had to point out the typo in the outfit description. So they wear white shit??
I am so sorry but this is just disturbing, WHY would anyone request a bear be dressed up to look like some of the most unlike people in America??

THE SNEE said...

Heehehee! I can't bear it anymore! Who wants to snuggle with a fully clothed bear? I know I don't.

Something Concupiscible said...

That's pretty cool but I'm not sure that I would want one.

Kicking Rocks said...

lol wow.... can i get a pastafarian teddy bear?

Claude said...

What the hell why? What is this. However it's a pretty nice looking outfit.

Random Girl said...

That is hilarious? My city has more strip clubs than just about anywhere else on earth, I wonder if we all requested stripper bears if we could get pasties and a g-string with lucite heels to go with it?? I'm e-mailing the company now. I'll let you know what they say. I think it would be equally as appropriate, don't you love?

Zombie said...

So if you dress the bear up as a Mormon, will he pass out 'The Watchtower' at the DMV?

Choirchick22 said...

Oh my gosh I want one too! Can you think of a better way to scare off the weekly missionary visit than getting that teddy bear, tying it up all torture victim like, and leaving it outside your door??

Also @kicking Rocks That would make my day!!!

Icepax_Nmir said...

That is so funny :p Glad the mormons finally get their own bears... Well, that is if they are allowed to buy them... :p

Matthew MacNish said...

It may not be a joke, but it IS hilarious.

Autumnforest said...

Well, since I'm living in hell in the AZ desert, I say, let's put in a build a Satan bear.

The crazy stuff people do. I awarded you with a Hug-a-blogger award: http://above-the-norm.blogspot.com/2011/04/hug-blogger-award.html

Venus said...

kitkat said...

lol i guess they want to go all out! :p

Tresni said...

D4 said...

I was hoping more and more that you weren't serious.. and you just kept providing proof. Why would you do that to me?

Mike said...

What is the world coming to?!?!

Lhosreiff said...

I dont really like bears, i think they're stupid.

Mr bir said...

sounds good thanks for sharing

Astronomy Pirate said...

We should air drop a whole supply of them on some Muslims.

-DO- said...

Mormon Missionary teddy bear would be awesome :D but i would never spend 100$ to buy it

K said...

That is awesome! Thanks for sharing.

becca said...

ok seriously that bear reminds me of a use car saleman

Leila said...

My ex-boyfriend from when I was 14 went to B-a-B and bought me an ugly monkey with a red sports sweater for $75 for valentine's day. It was soooo not worth the money. I felt bad though and pretended to love it until he dumped me.

Do they happen to have a concert violinist bear? I'd spend blood money on that...

Eric P said...

Hahaha that's hilarious. I always see these guys in my neighborhood. I once asked them why all their prophets are white. They tried to tell me they weren't, but on closer inspection, they were in fact all white men. Interesting.

G said...

There are a couple of Mormon missionaries that pop by every so often - they keep trying to convert me to their world view...i keep trying to get them to see the enlightenment of alcohol...

Crazy Days said...

Nice!!

The Reckmonster said...

I wonder what Athiest Bear and Agnostic Bear look like?

mac-and-me said...

lol

123mikeyd123 said...

wow what waste of money, id choose a grizzly over that any day

Nuker Zero said...

Oh great, anthropomorphized bears spreading gender bias to our children. FUCKING CUTE THO.

Frosty said...

...wow. Though I imagine you could probably dress some up and make some money reselling them around

Aaron M. Gipson said...

Actually that looks a butt load like the digs we had to wear in the Geek Squad.

CandleintheDark said...

hahahah this is such an awesome idea

meandmythinkingcap said...

Appreciate the idea:) These guys know how to make money.

I remember "My name is mohammed" teddy bears selling like hot cakes during British teacher death sentence threat controversy for naming a teddybear Mohammed in Sudan.

Kelly said...

We have Crack Ho Bear outfits at our store. We also have FudgePack Bear. He always seems to have brown stuff on his dingus. I can believe that about the Mormon Missionary bear in SLC. Maybe this company will eventually get around to promoting different bears for specific areas in a lot of the country. And oh, what a joyous day it will be!

tj said...

Wow this just made my day... i never would have expected that Build a Bear would have even contemplated making a religiously based bear .... people never cease to amaze me.

Kim Anders said...

wouw! never heard of this... make your own bear, lol :P

Mormon Missionary Teddy Bear -- hahaha!! I wouldn't buy it, but I think it's funny. Thanks for visiting the Responsible Pet Ownership blog today and taking our Dog Trivia Quiz -- hope to see you again!

hed said...

Oh that's too funny (and kind of appallingly cute).

I want a black panther build-a-bear with the afro pick!

ThePittsofBeingPeachy said...

dude as the worlds worst mormon, ( see had my kids 5th birthday party an invited all the missonaries and served mt dew and vodka) also call them over for lessons when I need my stuff moved. But I also let them sing karokee at my house. so it's a win win. I think that bear rocks. I also have a non PC post which doesn't shock me since I am a fruit and you're a veg ( not like hawking veg, see totally non pc) whatever screw it, you get the freaking point, send me a freaking bear damn it, also your peachy package is being shipped wed. wait with tingling anticipation.
