Polar bear cub plays with gender-appropriate blue bucket

It’s Friday. It’s been a heavy week. Budget speech. Veil ban. A serial killer targeting sex workers. Transphobic panic over some goddamn freaking nail polish.

Here are two-and-a-half minutes of a polar bear cub putting a bucket on its head.

Don’t worry, as far as I can tell this cub is male, and is therefore playing in an appropriately masculine way by putting a blue bucket on its head. Male polar bear cubs that play adorably with pink or purple buckets are, of course, part of a vast liberal conspiracy to destroy the American way of life.

    I almost fell out of my chair laughing. No joke.
