    It’s a result of bears eating salmon with high mercury levels. How do we stop this insanity?

    Too bad the Crocodile Hunter is dead- I’m sure he’d try to make friends with it.

    Or is this from a possible follow up to Creature, that dreadful Jaws sequel with the walking man shark thing?

    The original artist has the bearsharktopus on shirts for sale, if you guys are interested.

    Bearsharktopus is from this thread over at Reddit. The second top level comment has the original poster’s octopus arm addition.

    As if Chuck Norris would need a leash to make beasts submit to his will.

  39. Itsumishi says:

    Well he’s certainly scarier than a bulldle.

  40. Patrick Dodds says:

    Technically, isn’t he a barktopus?

    Yes, but does he fly?

    To modify the old joke –

    Two men at the beach are confronted by an angry Bearsharktopus. One man sits calmly, tightening his flippers. The other, incredulous, proclaims, “what are you doing with those flippers, they won’t help you out swim the Bearsharktopus?” He replies, “I don’t have to out swim the Bearsharktopus, I only need out swim you.”

    it reminds me of the manbearpig.. only less scarier of course

  47. danlalan says:


    Of course he didn’t NEED the leash, but Chuck Norris is law-abiding as well as invincible.

    Chuck Norris isn’t law-abiding. The law is Chuck Norris-abiding.

    what the fuck ever.

    Chuck Norris probably created this thing in a dream and then roundhouse kicked it into reality. No way is it ever defeating him, never mind eating him.

    Sorry everybody, didn’t know this creature was one of a kind. My neighbor and I, just returned yesterday. We caught it a couple days ago while on our yearly fishing/survival trip. It was delicious. Thought it strange, but we got hungry. SORRY!!!

    It needs a machete, a drug habit and a disrespect for traditional British values.
